Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry I've never been sure of how objectively difficult my childhood was. After all, life isn't a bed of roses for anyone and it is most certain that plenty of people in the UK have had worse, then I look at war torn countries, etc and realise that my childhood was actually very privileged. I ...

Re: Hello

Hi I'm sorry to read of your troubles. There were a number of sentences that jumped out at me. 'I am worried my issues are not serious enough for treatment and that my GP will dismiss me.' 'There are people that almost certainly have it much, much worse than me, and I don't know if I deserve help wh...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry I've been thinking about my avoidance of further counselling / therapy and what the pay-offs are for me. 1. The obvious, I get to avoid the distress stage of plunging into trusting someone and of dealing with long buried stuff. 2. Many of my MH symptoms are protective and part of me doe...

Adverse Childhood Experiences Study

I have just listened to a podcast on the ACE study. https://mowe.blog/podcast/how-childhood-can-haunt-us/ The ACE study linked a vast number of physical and social ailments in adults to traumatic childhood experiences. This includes the obvious stuff such as morbid obesity and drug addiction but als...

Hi

I always recommend the My Own Worst Enemy podcast for mental health. The host interviews senior academics in the field.

Re: Soothing Songs...don't worry, you will be o.k.

Hi B!

I find this song really soothing, it is a great reminder that we are not responsible for the whole world.

Re: Session

Simple answer: Don't cancel! Your post screams anxiety and avoidance. Try to be as open and honest with the counsellor as you can. I guarantee you will not have anything to say that an experienced counsellor has not heard before. Good counsellors do not judge, they have chosen to go into a professio...

Re: I'm new here...

Hi and welcome. I read your post in Safe Room and was sorry to hear about your experiences. That is the problem with cliques and internet cliques in particular, they have a tendency to become polarised and cult-like. Reason is rarely welcome, especially with highly emotive topics. Disagreement is of...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Hi Mate That is good advice. The thing we me is that I am scared of being close to anyone and have long been in the habit of avoiding that. It is important for me that I do try at this point, in order to challenge those habitual fears and behaviours. Mainly my post was about admitting how strongly I...
