I had a breakdown in June and have been getting the help I need since then. I just started seeing the most AMAZING therapist and attending a DBT psychoeducational group. I really felt like I was getting my mind back. Then my mother comes to visit for two whole weeks. We are on day 5 and I feel like I have taken a huge leap backwards. I am taking Klonepin like mad just to get through to day. Her criticism is getting to me, but also everything she does ANNOYS me to no end. She is the cause of a lot of my trauma. My good communication skills and assertiveness that I have been learning has gone out the window when she gets to me. More frustrated with myself. Can't wait to see my therapist tomorrow and get a new gameplan knowing what I do now!
Anyone experience something similar? Like coping skills going out the window without you even realizing it?
