I find I’m correcting myself in every way possible that is what has lead me on the road of recovery.
The Road of recovery must be around somewhere because I keep missing the exit. But honestly as long as I am doing good not relapsing thats what the Road of recovery is to me.
I remember the first time I had insight into being mentally ill. I was in the thick of a severe case of OCD when I was 15. I was doing my nightly bathroom ritual and it I was so anxious, worrying about the number of times I stroked my back teeth and rinsing my mouth out with passion, when I just looked in the mirror and saw a sick person.
Now I snip delusions in the bud and dont let them stay in my mind. It’s an acquired skill to have strong insight, I am reading a book called “The Mind and the Brain” which is about neuroplasticity and how we can correct faulty brain wiring through willpower and insight. I believe that strong insight is crucial to complete recovery- people improve with medication alone, but insight and cognitive-behavioral therapy seems to make people completely recover and enter remission.
When I correct myself I get tied in knots. And I think Not.
Is there anyway you can list the author? I would be interested in this book.
Jeffrey Schwartz. Did you know posts have to be 20 characters long? It wouldnt let me just type his name
Thank you for the author.
yeah, I knew about the 20 character thing. That’s why you see so many post here with long lines of dots. …
that explains alot…
