Re: Positive self talk

hi stone pixie, thanks for the invite. i most definatley will. got 2 drs apts today but tonight id love to contribute some more. just feeling my away around getting familiar with how things work.

Re: Positive self talk

well, re positive self talk, for me, for years it was negative self talk only. i worked hard to try to stem the flow of negativity which would do my head in.

i can still remember starting the deep breathing, and reality testing my thoughts which were leading me to paraoia.

i also started seeing a psychologist who i got on really well with, that helps.very important. i also started being more open with my closest friends about my struggles.

i would love to say it was easy but it took me about 2 years of relentless practice just to get a grip.

i still do it,,,,,,having conversations in my head and my anxiety feels like im drowning, but i am now able to say,,,,,, really,,,come on now,,,your doing it again, just slow down and stop it. i start deep breathing and i now also excercise including stretching and light weights, its hard to stress out completely when your doing excersice and i see a councilor and sometimes a pshycologist when i feel im getting out of control, like today.

contronting issues and annoyances still freezes me up but for  no were near as long as before.

now when im tripping i remind myself of the past successes ive had dealing with difficult issues.

i tell myself i have been here before, i tell myself it will only get worse if i dont deal with whats upset me. i say you got past it last time and the world didnt end. i know i can do it, i know i have what it takes because ive risen to the challenge before.

the discomfort is still there, but the relief i get after i contront an issues is amazing. its an amazing feeling. just the fact of facing an issue and having my say has really helped. i dont always get my way, and people will be difficult to get on with, but just venting or contronting ( when i manage to get around to it) really helps me.

anyway, sorry to go on and on. i hope i have kinda stayed on topic,,,,have i,,,mmmm, kinda, i think. i will catch on.

 oh,,,thank god for the auto save,,,,otherwise id be in crisisSmiley Wink
