What kind of support do you get?
Therapy? Groups? Meeting with friends?
I know what works for everyone is different, I just figured it'd be nice to get some ideas.
Counseling once a week. Medications, several of them. There aren't any groups around here.
I don't have help or support anymore.
But before I had therapy 2 times a month, and I was on medications.
Medication. I should be going to individual therapy. Me and DH go to marriage counseling every now and then when we can afford a sitter.
I'm on meds, or back on them I should say. I know I liked groups when I was inpatient, but I'm unsure if it was because of the people that were there.
I just know I need something to help me manage.
Medication. I have severe anxiety being in social settings so I never liked group.
If feel like I'm recovered now but when I was at my lowest I was attending weekly counciling sessions on my own and monthly group sessions as well as being on a medication.
I'm not doing anything now other than trying to be aware of changes in my outlook/ mental state and taking better care of myself physically.
right now I just talk on the phone with friends and bitch and complain about life. used to do counseling but kinda felt like I was just paying someone to be my friend. the only therapy that felt worthwhile was inner child therapy and emdr. Have gone to.group support meetings and that was nice bc it felt like I was just talking to friends.

That's how it felt when I was inpatient. I just don't know if it was the group of people I was with, and if it would feel like that on the outside
i have a severe panic/anxiety disorder and ptsd ; i don't like the meds, so i try not to take them if possible. i make sure to eat right, exercise, get lots of sleep and meditate with breathing exercises. i also make myself get up in the morning, get to work and get out of the house to do things with dd, family and friends.
i refuse to let it rule my life.
