Walking had helped me in the past.

yes

About to do her suggestion of trying walking if I get the urge... It is strong at the moment.

My GP says I did better over Christmas than she expected. That surprised me, but was good to hear. I worked well with the strategies she gave me at the beginning, but then it went out of control again. She says itís a long break, and the pressures of it are huge as one canít help reflecting on decisions you have made and if your family doesnít fit the media ideal it doesnít help.

A couple of times when I have had appointments near when I have cut she asks me what has led to it and I said to her today that I canít answer that most of the time. She said thatís because it is a comfort. That was good to hear as I thought I was being silly. She also said that I have had so much emotional pain I canít control that having pain I can control is another reason. That I hadnít thought of, and resonates as so true.

So I have come away with more ideas on coping and an appointment for next week. She seems prepared to say the same things over and over, and is convinced I will be ďokĒ again because I kerp coming back. She says I will learn that it ok to be me.

Next hurdle for today - cat has appointments with her cardiologist...

Thank you for sharing this. This makes so much sense to me. I currently need a wound all the time. Just comforts somehow. The reason is not identifiable a lot of the time

I hope that your GP offers some sensible support tomorrow. Recovery can take quite a while, just reducing the frequency is a positive step towards recovery. She's been helpful before, so be honest with her. Just because you didn't respond to CBT before doesn't mean that there aren't still options for you.
