Hi Roslynn,

Sorry you're feeling so down.

I second emmanuel's comments on dbt in that they are skills built over time, like developing a muscle, or creating new cognitive pathways that become more 'natural' but are really accessible when one (I) am not in a really dark depression.

Sometimes I really need to practice w/ people--in a group or one on one. Otherwise it is like the old pulling myself up by the bootstraps situation--one that is harmful and cruel to myself--that I should be able to do 'it' myself.

Distress tolerance--reminding myself that it will pass, I'm not my pain, and resisting projecting bad feelings into the future. These remain the strongest skills for me. And sometimes those fail me. Then I try to reach out to someone. (tough for me)


MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
