Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

23 April - Note to self

Am I ashamed of feeling sad? Does feeling sad trigger self disgust? Do I punish myself for feeling sad, angry or upset?

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

22/04/2021 Diary Entry Mood is significantly better. The sunshine helps, but mainly 'cause can socialise again. Was out four nights last week. Really enjoyed it and, like magic, I no longer have the urge to drink alcohol. Drinking at home was a thing during lockdown and had gotten out of hand. Notic...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

06/04/2021 Diary Entry The nightmares about open house in my previous diary entry have gone away :) I think I can apply a similar method to the nightmares about my mother and other relatives. Fingers crossed. I'm coming to terms with the past. Still feel grief, loss and sadness, at a life not lived ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

06/03/21 Diary Entry Still believe focusing on changing my victim mentality is essential to my recovery. Still believe that will have to wait until lockdown is over. I need social events to change my internal view of myself as a small and vulnerable child to the reality of a large, strong, capable, ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry Things are ok, aside from lockdown. Yesterday I had a long (distanced but physically present) lunch with a friend I've not seen in eighteen months. It was soooo enjoyable and really brought home how much I miss my friends and human contact. Lockdown considered, I'm doing well. Most of Ja...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

24 Dec 2020 Been a while since I've made a diary entry. I've been consolidating the gains from all of my recent work. Not much I can do about the social side in these locked down times and I feel the lack of other people keenly, but overall things have been pretty good. Emotional flashbacks have me ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry 17/10/20 Reading a book by the founder of Internal Family Systems Therapy. I keep laughing, this theory is the kind of self-contradicting nonsense that gives psychotherapy a bad name. Still hoping there my be some useful practical techniques, but I'm up to page 57 and he has already invo...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Next Steps I have come so far in the last ten years of successful work on my mental health (and in four years of this diary!). This post is to set out my next steps. The hope is that I can take these steps in parallel with engaging more in life, building on the immense positive changes I have alread...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

I went back to work after a couple of weeks. Didn't feel up to it (still don't, had real trouble leaving the house yesterday morning) but I needed to protect my employment and besides, when you fall off of your bike, it is best to climb back on ASAP. Just have to be careful to take time out for me ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry 10 October 2020 I seem to have found a cause to fight for, a goal to aim for, and it is me. Diary Entry Monday, 12 October 2020 I have been feeling so much better since I finished drawing out so many emotions in counselling. I can now sit quietly at home and while not quite at ease with ...
