DBT therapy
« on: January 31, 2018, 01:22:10 AM »
Hi, I am new to the forum can't believe I have only just found it!!! I am currently on DBT therapy which I have to say is quite possibly the hardest thing I have ever done. Has anyone else had experience with DBT therapy and self harm? This week for the first week in 35 years I went 7 days not self harming. Previously I was self harming up to 15 Times per day.  My CPN and DBT psychologist were really proud of me, but I don't feel like I thought I would. I feel quite angry that they have turned me into someone I don't know and this scares me. Self harm has been my way of life since I was 5 years old and this week I have missed the feelings it gives me, pleasure, pain, comfort, but most of all it's my safety blanket and now without that blanket I don't know what to do.  I always felt my wings of strength were broken, but now they feel shattered into a million pieces. Anyone else feel like this?
