Well, apparently I have poor tolerance

Posted by Dinah on October 21, 2005, at 17:56:49

That's the conclusion of T2 and T3 both shared in the second meeting. So I suppose there's a consensus. :)

They think I have a hard time tolerating anxiety or other strong emotions, so I use less than ideal ways of distracting myself. When what I should do is sit with the pain.

Something like that.

I think she's got a hard job ahead of her, to tell the truth. I'd rather have less pain, not tolerate the pain I have better.

I'm supposed to add to my self soothing repertoire, though for me it's hard to distinguish self soothing from distraction, except one is admired and the other disapproved of.


It's not like T1 hasn't told me this a million times. It's just that it's easier for me to tell him to go take a flying leap...
