Nervous breakdown


Hi Eleveno,

I am sorry to head about your relapses. How are you feeling today?

I am very proud to read you are getting right back to the program again. I look forward to reading more frequently from you again!

The thought records worksheet is very good for dealing with disturbed thoughts, and for some time now that I do not use it, even when needing it.
 
That's one of the challenges of CBT, to use the material. The problem is that when I feel good I stop using it, and to start using it again is not always very easy. The habit has to form again.
 
I tried also to use mindfulness meditation for dealing with disturbed thoughts, which is also an wonderful tool, but at this time of my life CBT requires less time available since I already have experience with it.
 
Times has not been easy for me, six months ago I had a nervous breakdown, and one month ago I almost had a relapse with another nervous breakdown. I am also on medication to help with these feelings.
