I have wrote about my husband, Steve and how he passed away, yesterday they started Depositions and I spent 4 hours going over our life together 11 years and I did really good until we got to the accident and then the last few days of his life.  Having to tell what happened again and going over the details tore me up.  What got to me worse than anything else was the Doctor was there and it seemed like they did not even care, there was no sign or indication they were even sorry I lost my…

Just before Christmas I had my last session with my CBT counselor and he said I have come a very long way but he thinks I will do fine.  I just have to remember that if I start isolating myself, I am to get myself out.  I am not allowed to avoid, if I do, find a way to face the issue.  Just about every obstacle I was facing I was able to overcome and I feel pretty good about it. 

Music was the one obstacle that seemed to be the block that may only take time to over come.  My last…

And the Counseling Journey Continues

My counselor, Tom, now has me in the Imaginative part of the counseling.  Originally, I was supposed to write out a memory with as much detail as possible and record it and play it back every day.  Now I am to write it out every day, since music seems to trigger the strongest emotional responses Tom decided we would start there but to avoid the group and song that really rips me apart, at least for now.

 Here is the first memory:

Hi Aeleice,

Thanks for adding me and leaving a nice note. I too suffer from anxiety attacks and was thinking of starting therapy when I read your recent blog posts. The fact that it is helping you gave me hope and I have started going for sessions since last week. Hoping it works for me too!

You take care of yourself. Hugs.
