Maxie I think you are correct. I didn't know you were so close to the states. How close to Maine? Might find one there but I guess you would have to pay. Phillipa

Forgot to mention that I spend the entire day in bed. That can't be good. Going from sleeping my days away (to escape) to working a 40 hour a work week is not going to be easy. Sigh. Off to bed now.

I found that book very unhelpful. The focus was on CBT kinds of distorted thoughts. I am depressed because my boss is mad at me. My husband doesn't do his share of housework and I get depressed. All the examples are like that. If only it were that simple. I get depressed because I do. it's not a cognitive distortion, but a physical shutting down.

Emmanuel98,

I didn't like that book either. Not at all helpful--in fact, irritating for just the examples you cited. Reinforced my feelings of alienation because, as you said, if only my life were that simple.

There is a book that still stands out (for me) amidst a sea of facile (read annoying) mindfulness books: http://

Thoughts Without A Thinker by Mark Epstein.

About dbt. My best experience (most helpful and enduring) was group dbt. And it was more affordable. Not easy to come by, a group that really clicks, maybe, but another possible avenue of self-help. The lead was able to keep us moving and didn't waste our time :)

Hi FB.

What would you say are the major differences between CBT and DBT?

Thanks.

You are up early or skipped it completely. I read nearly 3/4 of that tremendous thread started by olivia12

I decided BP or not, you are one of the most rational thinkers I know (online, of course).

Well, studies tend to say that PBD is much less effected by cbt. A true or let's say straightine cbt practiomer may inadvertently trigger anger. Not that in it self is bad or to be avoided. As the anger (saddness, fear) surfaces, repressed, misplaced and looking maybe a little large for the therapists' one room office. Cbt therapist would very quickly and clearly let the patient know that the alien gob rising up the back of her throat was the clients anger. The client isn't clear at all; she's losong control. Her rage may be partily articulated, and mow could be feeling intense shame and fear.

Oh what am I trying to say? True BP types want, besides a very deep sense of relief, validation and acceptance. Cognitive *distortions* area part of the overall issues.

Funny, Scott, you asking me this. I decided today that I am PBD or at least have lots of traits. A rose by any other name:) Tuesday I tell my pdoc.

I can't believe the strength of this board combined. Bless us one and all.

Thanks, FB. Your kind words mean a lot to me.

I know that DBT was designed specifically for treating borderline personality disorder (BPD). I hope they change the name of this condition in DSM V. Probably not, though.

You are a real positive force on Psycho-Babble.

Sincerely meant, and thank you, too.

My sleeping pill wasn't working. There are gazillion typos in my post! Pretty hilarious. I need to stay off the keyboard and stay in bed even if my darn pill doesn't work :)

DBT is also used to treat eating disoders.

I also know someone who did a DBT programme for depression.

I was suppose to go through DBT again this year, but with my new job, I can't. I will just have to keep on reading my binder.

Despite the job, I am still not feeling that great. I really struggle to concentrate at work.

Despite the above, it is cool environment to work in. I can always hear the singing of little children and their laughter. Of course every once in while I hear tears and I think to myself "would it be OK if I joined you?"

The courses start on Monday and I just want to be prepared. I have full ownership over these courses. No one is telling me what to do. I report directly to the Directon. Hmm, can you tell it's not for profit?

I find I am really tired when I wake up and I have a very hard time getting out of bed. Everything hurts.

I also like my uniform ( I am sure I already posted this). I get to wear jeans everyday with one of their staff t-shirts. :)

It's very cool since I don't fit into ANY of my clothes from last fall. I bought a pair of jeans last week that fit and I am going to go back and buy another. Then I am done! Of course I wear the funkiest of shoes with my jeans! :p

Whatever you dare to wear! I often get comments on my shoes and my tights. I seek out things that are different.

I was so freaking busy at work that I didn't have a chance to be in touch with what I was feeling. I focused on the large task at hand at that's it.

Now it is night time (8:30 pm) and I feel like sh*t.

I was wondering what funky meant too.

Here it means three things to me:

Super-hip

Disco glitter Glam

Yucky, scungy, unwholesome

Then there's music which means soulful, playful, behind-the-beat. James Brown, Sly Stone....

Glad your day was good and you were absorbed in work. Sounds good.

Hopefully you'll get some sleep and have another decent day. Sounds like a rough ride. Sorry.

Try not to forget and acknowledge your achievements for the day, especially when you can feel so negative at night. You are a success, Maxime.

I am going to go to bed in a half hour so that I will be in bed by 9 pm. That is so early for me, but I am tired.

I am supposed to have Fridays off and work Saturdays. But I am working tomorrow because I have to. I won't come in on Saturday though, I will just some files home with me.

I'n glad today is almost over.

I made through my first week at work. I didn't have a breakdown so that's a good sign.

Next week I will start delivering the courses.

I hope I do okay.

Feeling really exhausted and in a lot of pain.

I tend to wear only one piece of funky clothing or accessories. At a time. I don't dress head to toe that way. I love stuff from the 60s and 70s. I do a lot of vintage clothes shopping. It's fun!

 

Bad thoughts please go away!!!!

Nasty thoughts, go away! I think I must be getting anxious for next when I start to train everyone. A part of me doesn't want to do it and is thinking of hurting myself so that I don't have to do it. Then there is another part of me that thinks the other part of me is an idiot.
