It's inspiring to see you reach and practice getting help.
Everyone has their challenges, and many want to help themselves all on their own.Sometimes, the stubborn side of us can be very reluctant to ask for
help,but sooner or later I think most learn that they can't do everything on their own.When you think about the goals you have for yourself, try not
to measure yourself by where you are in relation to what you seek, rather by the daily efforts you practice making along the way.Idk, I feel many
would benefit by focusing more on practice then simply staring at what they want long term.
What you mentioned about noticing that cold feeling is something that reminds me of some adversity I've been working through.During a particularly
manic time in my life, I found my own body weight plummeting as I frantically wrestled with my own issues by burning the candle at both ends and in
Part of my healing placed me on some different kinds of medicine that had side effects of weight gain for example.The reason I bring this up, is that
I feel that aside from the nutritional aspect of diagnosis like this I have a sneaking suspicion the lower body weight increases our sensitivity to
the more hidden side of life.For example, individuals will fast when they are going on vision quests or that sort of mission.I found the weight gain
was good to a certain extent for slowing down that mode of perception and being able to have some time to think more clearly about and assimilate my
experiences up to that point.It's almost like the weight has an insulating effect of some kind on the energies around and passing through us.
I found hemp hearts are a good source of nutrition, if eating bulk is part of what makes you reluctant to eat more.Friends of mine use it for working
out, though it has different effects depending on how you use it.I mention this specifically because I believe it is similar to mother's milk as far
as nutrition goes a very complete form of getting alot of what our diets lack now a days.I like to start my day off with those in a kefir smoothy
blended with fruit.It's something to consider taking a look at.
It's good that you are working on improving your health.A healthy body is one of the keys to unfolding your spiritual gifts.I am optimistic that
working on your physical health will improve balance in all the other areas of your life.(I know i'm preaching to choir
)With your efforts to figure
out which other tools to work with, I feel that the CBT could do alot of good.I've looked into that myself for a loved one, if you have the means
(financial support or health plan) go for it.Individuals are sometimes reluctant to get one on one help, but I think for someone like you it may be
I haven't been through any kind of residential treatment place per se, but what I imagine is that being sensitive may create a challenge from the
contrast that could come up between the way the others in the place feel and what the therapists in the house are trying to achieve.Individually if
your intuition doesn't feel comfortable with the initial therapists you encounter while exploring CBT, it may be easier to give someone else the
opportunity to work with you then switch residential treatment facilities.Not because your loved ones aren't standing behind you,but rather just the
practicalities of the situation. Besides, you can always take advantage of that form of help down the road.
Please, if you decide to do one on one therapy, take the time to do research and find someone who you feel comfortable with.There is many who have had
negative experiences with professionals in this field, but I think they may have sold themselves short by not trying to find someone more suited to
their individual needs.The better therapists, and psychologists often provide extensive information online and in person about their education, areas
of expertise, methodologies they use and other factors to consider how well they may be able to communicate or be able to see where you are coming
from.Take advantage of that info, to encourage a smoother healing experience...
