Good Afternoon, World!!! I saw Gilbert today for therapy. We discussed a number of things today. Some of which I will share with you. We first discussed me punching a brick wall. We did a chain analysis on the self harm action. We talked about I could have done differently than punching a brick wall.
Not only did we talk about self harm we discussed my time at the DSHS office. We talked about how I am finally back on Medicaid and getting a higher amount of food stamps. We discussed how I am now able to finally get proper dental care. Gilbert also informed me about how I can double my food stamps local farmers markets.
Now that I told you what therapy was like today, I think I am going to go and read. I really enjoy reading as it helps me get out of my head.
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!!!
