Everyone does say that laughter is the best medicine. Your medications are just a supplement.
Disclaimer: we are not medical professionals- we cannot give you a diagnosis or medication advice. Please speak to a health professional for this. If you are in crisis please contact one of the hotlines on our page.
Take a deep breath anon. It’s going to be okay.
Remember, your diagnosis is only a label so that professionals know how best to treat you and help you on your recovery. This label does not change who you are and you don’t need to be ashamed of this label.
It does not change that you are a unique and wonderful person. No one can replace you and you have a lot of strength and potential and you are so bravely working towards recovery in DBT.
No matter what others say, you are important and you matter. Don’t let it make you feel any less “special” because you are special to someone. You are loved.
I’m glad you’ve let us know how you feel, that’s a good first step. Talking about what is bothering you or what is keeping you down will help ease the pressure. Perhaps, write down these feelings as well or express them in some other creative form.
If there is a group leader of some sort [or something of the ilk] talk to them about your concerns. Even though this was after the group, people should still be following the rules especially if it is such a sensitive topic.
Stay strong anon. You can do this.
