I have been in and out of therapy and on and off meds. BUT THE OVERWHELMING BAD FEELINGS ALWAYS COME BACK! One of my therapists said I drink and cut to disassociate from the trauma of my abusive childhood.
We lost our health insurance and don't qualify for assistance cause we own our home.
I need ideas that worked for others. I can't go on like this. I tried writing my feelings,but that didn't seem to work. I want the pain to go away!
Please pray for me! Thanks!

You can do it, just take it one day, one minute at a times. here are some great links. I was a self harmer from age 8-22 and DBT is what finally helped me to quit. I had tried every medication, therapy, in-patient, out-patient therapy available.

Call your local United Way (211) and your county's social services number to get referrals to places who counsel for free. Churches in your area may also have groups available or a pastor to talk to. Call the manufacturer who makes your medicine to see if you can get free samples or a month's supply at a reduced cost. Remembering what you need to do from past therapy sessions can help. Getting out & taking a walk can help clear your head as well. GL

Can you replace your negative thoughts with positive ones? Instead of thinking about a bad thing that happened, think of a positive one. Even if it's something like the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming. Something funny the kids have done or said. Anything to make you focus on the positive.
