@dustb0wldance what you just said made a lot of sense to me.
It's liker recovery is like physical fitness. You don't just train every day for 6 months and go "alright I'm fit which means I can finally quit all this training!" You have to keep working out on a regular basis to maintain your fitness.
Just like you have to keep implementing those strategies to stay mentally recovering.

@dustb0wldance @StarLord I'll agree with that too - for me it's like exercise is needed just about everyday to keep my mood up, along with other self care stuff. It's like a daily effort to keep pushing forward.

Re: [GR] It's getting better! ...Wait, no. It's getting worse.

@j95 the questions so far:

1. What do recovery and relapse mean to you?

2. What is something that has or could have helped you on your recovery journey?

3. What are some setbacks that you have faced and how have you dealt with these in your recovery?

[ Edited ]

It's great that we've been able to identify and address some setbacks. Here's another interesting question:

 

Do you think it’s okay to have a relapse? What are the positive and negative aspects of having a relapse?
