A little bit
I have found therapy to be very helpful. Should I go there?
I don't want her to feel that
No. In fact, she said that. She said she would feel like a failure.
For the time being/
Therapy was the most significant. I stayed in therapy for several years.
I am much older now and I have used a self-talk approach that I was taught by my therapist. I have also been very successful in many areas of my life and I think you begin to see you can be successful. I also do things like yoga and I write poetry.
I tried. She does exercise. But I also feel like she's not hearing me or believing they will work yet. She has to experience that. Last night when she was refusing to go to sleep I told her to put her laptop in bed and watch music videos on youtube or to look at a tv show to distract herself from thinking about bugs. She tries everything I tell her to. I just hate it that she is struggling as I did. It took a long time to pull myself out of it.
Thank you for that site reference. The problem is that when you are in an extremely agitated state, it is nearly impossible to rein in your thoughts enough to meditate. I think you have answered my question: should I go there. The answer is no. This just has to play out. The quicker I can get her into therapy, the better.
Thank you. It has been helpful just to talk to someone.
