Good Evening, World!!! This week has been an uneventful week. I did the usual stuff of going to see my case manager and therapist as well as going to groups. So more or less this week has been a focus of my recovery.
Wednesday also marked the one month anniversary of my grandma’s passing. It was a difficult day as expect. I saw Gilbert that day and we discussed a little bit about the grief I was dealing with.
Another thing I did this week was a great deal of DBT skills which included me doing some workbooks. It appears from my end that the workbooks have been of help to me a great deal. I know it is helping me with my recovery.
I am about to start my volunteer shift in about fifteen minutes and need to get going as the mentor on duty just arrived. He wants to check in with me to see how I am doing.
Thank you for reading. Have a great evening. Peace Out, World!!
Good Evening, World!!! Today, I went to therapy and saw Gilbert. We worked on both on my crisis plan and treatment plan. We spent about an hour and a half working on both. On a sad note Gilbert is going to be working on a different team starting April but he will make sure that there will be a soft (or warm) hand off when my new clinician starts in April. As sad as I am that Gilbert is going to a different team, I am grateful that he will make sure I’ll have a good clinician.
I also went to DBT group. Only four of us showed up to group including myself. I am a little disappointed that only four people showed up today as I tend to learn better by hearing what others have to say.
Even though today is not quite St. Patrick’s Day, I celebrated it with friends a day early. We had corn beef, potato’s and cabbage. I love an authentic Irish meal especially when it’s celebrating my heritage.
Good Evening, World!!! I am wanting to blog right now but having some issues at the moment. Part of it is genuine writers block while the other part is due to mental health symptoms. Symptoms that are quite bothersome and annoying as hell.
I did see Gilbert today. We discussed the recent trauma I experienced. We also discussed the art work I did in Art Group today. He really likes the fact that art helps me open up about stuff that I need to discuss to help me with my recovery.
For me finding way to help me with my recovery is quite important to me. That’s why I am grateful that Gilbert is invested in my recovery. I think he is more so at the moment than I am but that is okay with me for now.
Thanks for reading. It’s much appreciated from my end. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Evening, World!!! It has been a long and difficult day for me. I started out the day with seeing my case manager. We had some not so good moments that we ended up working out which is huge progress on my end.
I then went to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Group. Group grew from four individuals to ten people. Lets see how many stick around this time. We of course have homework and I am okay with that. The homework will be quite helpful for me as it will give me the structure I so desperately need.
After group I saw Gilbert. It was a tough session however it was toward the end of the session that was the most difficult. I was honest with him about something I hadn’t been honest with anybody else about. Something that desperately needed to be told and I might share at a later date when I process it more with Gilbert.
Thank you so much for reading. It is much appreciated. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Evening, World!!! I don’t have much to say except I didn’t go to knitting group and art group was cancelled however I did see Gilbert today. We discussed a number of things. We mainly discussed recovery and what it looks like to me. We also talked about societal norms and expectations and how they are both beneficial and a hindrance to my recovery process.
After therapy I came home took a nap and then made dinner. Well, I am making dinner right now. It’s in the oven and waiting for it to finish cooking. I am hungry and am looking forward to my dinner being done cooking so I can eat it.
