i've tried all those things for the tricotillamania.
i've just started seeing a new counselor who does dialectic behavior therapy.
when i go on walks my mind usually wanders to bad places.

You need to learn to keep your mind in the 'now' Tessy. Your new doctor can probably help you with that. Don't let your mind wander. You can do this. It just takes practice. Learn to look at the things around you and learn to appreciate nature and stuff like that. You can do this... I know...

tess, karen is right. same situation needs different focul thought. mindfulness practice is excellent, me i get great pleasure and oneness with candle gazing. when a thought enters, recognise the thought and let it go. so try this on your walks, see a bird, recognise, let it go, etc. seems overly simplistic.......over time it is calming and harmonising ......in all aspects of life. wishing you well. with loving compassion. jamie

Hi Tess,

I am wondering how you are doing today. I'm so glad you are seeing a DBT therapist. How was your day off? I hope the hydroxyzine helped you. Let us know how things are going when you get a chance.

Hi Tess,

I am glad that you got your errands done today. I had errands too and everything seemed to be messed up. No matter what it was. So now that I am done, I am relaxing for the rest of the day. Well until it is time to do dishes.

I am glad that you are taking the rest of the day easy. You got a lot done and now it is time to rest.

I hope that the rest of your day goes well.'

Hugs, Karen

Depression causes you to feel tired. So that is normal for depression. Are you taking any medications or going to any therapy? I can't remember...

Talk to you later,

Hi Tess,

I thought that I answered your post but I must not have pushed submit or something.

I am happy that you are toing to dbt. Is it helping at all? I sure hope so. You have been really trying hard. Keep up the good work.

it's not helping yet cause we've had to spend the first two sessions doing paperwork.

i'm using facebook but i keep seeing my mom's pic on there which makes me extremely depressed because she's still not talking to me.

Tess,

That was a huge breakthrough. I am really happy for you. I know that you feel sad, but you will feel better each time. So remember that it is good to cry sometimes.

Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen
