Not a Life Sentence

Posted by Dr. Rod on November 22, 2003, at 11:22:37

Affective Disorders need not be thought of as a life sentence in the jail of your mind... The symptoms are ambiguous on a good day, so expectations are not met and frustration sets in...

All recovery is a process, never an event... Passing through a threshold of recovery leaves you feeling that you had a recovery event... You feel all giddy with success, until another demon arrives at the door... What you may forget to honor in yourself is that the last success gave you practice and strategies for the next demon, no matter how vile and hidious...

I like to say, "While you are healing, we are watching, lovingly"... The "Outcome Thinking" project did have a beginning, a middle, and an end... Luckily the end came before my mentor David Peck passed away, the research and the results are complete... Carefully administered, the techniques and strategies we developed and perfected, can continue to produce the "got it" success for 7 out of 8 people...

That was a 6 month live-in program... Would a 30 day at-large program producing 1 success out of 8 people be enough??? How about 5 out of 8???
