I'm really proud of myself today!

After a few weeks of struggling through fibro pain and struggling to get through the day, I did really well today!
I slept in a bit, I did a light workout, and I got myself dressed in a cute and comfy outfit. I smoked a little pot, took the dog for a long walk, tidied the living room and vacuumed the whole main floor! I even made dinner for the whole family all by myself and cleaned up after. I'm really glad I got to have a good day and got to do so much!

Do you think it's possible to learn DBT on your own?

I live in a small town and there are no resources for DBT therapy. So a month ago I bought The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook. Had an online mentor for 8wks to help me through the beginning ins and outs of DBT. The support was amazing and much needed. Now that the online program is over I'm finding it hard to focus on this alone. Had a bad couple wks but now I'm getting back on the right path. Just wondering and hoping if this is really possible on my own.

am I anorexic?

well the other day I got called in to the counselors office and I didn't know why well you bet I found out first it was the fact that I wasn't paying attention in class and I had explained to her that it was because I was tired and the she asked why I haven't been eating and I told her that I had been eating and she told me that my teachers emailed her and told her that I had not been eating so she asked me again why I haven't been eating and I told her because I was depressed and she asked how long this had been going on and I told her since middle school and I know how to handle it then she said that I might be anorexic but I don't think I am. #idkwhattodo #onlyhuman #whyme
