Mental Health Chat


Combatting isolation.
On with weepingwillow
Isolation is a common issue with many mh issues and also in abuse. It is usually important to stay connected to people as part of recovery/treatment, we will discuss what things we do to stay connected.

Handling intrusive thoughts
On with weepingwillow
Intrusive thoughts happen with many mh disorders so we will talk about handling them in real time and any ideas for getting rid of them.

Coping with mood disorders.
On with weepingwillow
Mood disorders are common among abuse survivors, and we will talk about how we cope with those symptoms.

Med management
On with weepingwillow
Many of us with mh issues take meds to manage them, which means in turn that we need to do med management.

Coping with mental illness.
On with weepingwillow
We'll talk about general coping skills we use to deal with mental illness and perhaps narrow some more specific topics for later chats. :ty for idea

How do I know if I'm making progress in t?
On with weepingwillow
It is really hard to tell if you are progressing in t, and so many people feel as though they are failing because they cannot tell. Do goals in t help you? Does it help to have your t point out progress? How do you know if you are actually stuck and not making progress so you can change it?

What is this chat, and have any topics?
On with weepingwillow
We're back from chats being on a long break, so for the first chat we'll kinda talk about what the mental health chat is gonna be because chats changed. Also, if you have any topics you're interested in, feel free to share them. Sometimes it gets hard to come up with topics, so it's a huge help.

Can't wait to see you all!

what are your goals regarding DID? integration? better cooperation within system? better coping with symptoms (like timeloss) just for yourself, and your others can do what they like? better communication, something you need your others to know/understand/accommodate?

are these long-term or short-term goals? where do you see yourself dissociation-wise in a year?
