Hi Guys,

REPOST from Bipolar Forum
The DBT groups didn't prove to be too popular and that's okay. I enjoyed focussing on DBT each week with others, but I have decided that my daily exploration of my ptsd will be enough personal growith. I will definitely still use DBT whenever I can. My DBT group wasn't delivered by an expert. It was delivered by a broken person taking up the challenge to heal herself the best she could. I don't know if I will ever heal but I'm not going to stop trying, because that is when it is certain I won't. It takes 1/2 hour out of my time even if no one shows for group and that is just a waste of time for me. I did lose internet connect for a moment in the first 15mins. If someone came in within that time, I am sorry to have missed you. On with my day!

Hi Jade,

I think it was cool that you did it. And you did... So don't look at it as a failure in any way. I am sure members appreciate it. UA had said they were going to try to make it today after work. But I don't think that they always get home in time. But I know that they apprecaited that you held the chat at all. I am not familiar with dbt myself. I did cbt. And it helped me. I hope that you have a good evening. Know that you are appreciated.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks Karen,

I don't think it is a failure. DBT works and there has been times when the groups have been extremely well attended. Things change and I'm okay with that. I also know that I can keep incorporating DBT into my life more even without group. It was a nice way to share that aspect of personal growth and many good things sprung from what I did in the groups. I'm sure UA has my email and she's welcome to contact me any time she wants :)

Hugs Back,

Jade x

Hi LW,

Sorry I missed your chat again.
Nevertheless, I must let you know that I really did enjoy the chat the few times I was able to make it. I must thank you for letting me be a part of the chat. The DBT was a great learning experience for me and I really appreciated all your help and efforts.
Please take care of yourself and I hope you feel better soon.

Enjoy your evening!
