Sorry im just fed up and dont feel good. I'v been ok all day but now i feel low and i just cant do it anymore.

misskitty112 24-11-2010 12:25 AM

*hugs Ian* I'm around if you need to chat :) I pop on and off of RYL.

Guys... I'm scared. I've set a date. I can't keep going on like this, and I know... I know, somewhere in my mind that suicide won't do anything except rob me of the possibility of seeing better days. But things haven't been better for years... so i don't know.

misskitty112 24-11-2010 12:52 AM

Ian, you aren't moaning. I care about you. I'd be really sad if you weren't around. *hugs*

*spots Laura and hugs*

misskitty112 24-11-2010 02:09 AM

It has been a long day. :(

I saw my psychiatrist this morning ... It was kind of interesting. We talked about the session I had with the psychologist and why I wasn't going back. My psychiatrist told me that I was too intelligent for the "games" the psychologist was playing. He also said that it sounded like the psychologist was using straight CBT, and not even tailoring it for me, which explains why we were getting nowhere and I was getting frustrated. CBT does not work for me. Personally I don't believe it works at all, but that's me.

Anyway I'll stop clogging up the ward. I'll go into greater detail in my thread (link in signature) when I am able and have the time.

Sorry for the lack of individuals, but I'm leaving *big and gentle hugs* and *safe love and care packages* for all and *going out into the garden to play with Puppy SinClair*

*Hugs Ian* You're not moaning mate, thats why we are here , to support each other , things would NOT be better off if you killed yourself :(

*Hugs Kahlia* I do NOT like CBT either , I was my former CPN's guinea pig as she was being trained and I found it too invasive.

Mark: CBT only works if the person believes it works - like most talk therapies. I had people using it on me and I'm not good at therapies that try to "push" you into doing things. I tend to push back instead of going where they want. *shrug* For me it isn't invasive ... I just don't talk. They get "yes" and "no" answers and nothing else which means they go nowhere and get frustrated and I get frustrated when they just keep rephrasing the questions.

whats the difference between DBT and CBT? they seem pretty similar to me.

MammaMia 24-11-2010 02:55 PM


CBT is not necessarily different than DBT. CBT is a term that refers to any type of psychotherapy that focuses on addressing the cognitive (thoughts and beliefs) and behavioral (actions) aspects of a disorder to reduce symptoms. DBT is actually one specific type of CBT that is used to treat borderline personality disorder.

When Dr. Marsha Linehan, the psychologist who developed DBT, first began testing treatments for people with BPD, she found that traditional CBT alone was not as helpful to people with BPD because of its strong focus on change, which people sometimes found invalidating. For this reason, she designed DBT to include some elements that, in the past, were not traditionally part of CBT. For example, in DBT there is a strong emphasis on mindfulness and acceptance (both by the patient and the therapist).

What is confusing is that, since DBT was developed, more and more cognitive-behavioral therapists have started to include some of these new modifications in their practice. There are also a number of other new CBTs for a variety of disorders that include elements such as mindfulness; one example is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, for depression. As a result, DBT and other new therapies that include elements such as mindfulness and acceptance are being called “third-wave” cognitive-behavioral therapies because they represent a new trend in CBTs in general.
Hope that answers your question Nicole :)

My Mobile was playing up so I had to use Master Reset and it's erased all my saved texts:( I had some nice motivational ones on there from friends I have and more upsettingly friends I've lost touch with . Nuts .

misskitty112 24-11-2010 05:13 PM

I don't see my counselor or my psych until Dec 7. I know that's not too far away, but it feels so far away... So much for them thinking I'm doing better.

*Hugs Mark* I'm sorry about your phone. That sucks majorly. Can the company help you recover those texts or is that not possible? (My company has a backup thing that will recover lost things if that happens)
*Hugs Heather* I'm with you. I'd love to go to England and skip Thanksgiving.
*Hugs Kahlia* I'm sorry you can't sleep.
*Hugs Helen and Nicole* How're you guys?

Doikers 24-11-2010 05:18 PM

Felicia hun *Hugs* Please make an Emergency appointment , because you've set a date you NEED NEED NEED to meet a professional , Please take care .

FlyingNy 24-11-2010 05:19 PM

Felicia, please tell someone about the date, or don't go through with it. I would hate for anything to happen to you, I need someone to complain about English with if I start it at uni. Of course that isn't the only reason.

Ian, I hope you're alright.

*Hugs everyone else*
