This article is kind of old, but I found it of some interest /
I have tried to apply myself to some of the exercises listed on this page ( emilymoody both three minutes breathing space, No 8 and No 9, and when I succeed, they provide you with real great perspective on life and sickness. Unfortunately, the two or three last times that I tried, I had to stop and got frustrated to not even be able to sit on it for 3 littles minutes… Anyhow, you guys take good care and please feel free to share comments on those two resources if you wish too. Best,
Good practice…the sz who can meditate has command of the illness…i cant meditate for long anymore…its a good indicator of how sick you are…i remember meditating daily when i was healthy…i tried at the hospital in group…i freaked out and bolted…
this. this is my life. I considered myself a master at meditating. now I can’t. I feel … defeated
Ha…your a druid hippie ginger…never be defeated…just practice…you can watch tv and practice breathing in and holding and letting go… I go through phases where i can and long periods where i cant…its like knowing the gods…and then not hearing from them for years…
dont loose heart they are still watching and smiling upon you…go with shadow o ye child of light…
false. I now have the attention span of a gold fish
I do too lol…i tried just be patient you did it once you can do it again…got get some adderal…lol
I can’t count to five when breathing anymore just try it, though, and when you get distracted, just acknowledge it and try again.
@minnii was walking me through counting and breathing a few months back, it took maybe 9 or 10 tries before I could count to 10. I just kept starting over until I finally got there.

I fine this article very interesting. I’ve tried meditating and breathing exercises before I was hit with all the confusion and I could do it just fine. Now? I can’t sit still for more than 3 minutes. I think it’s a sz thing but it could be because I lost practice. My therapist suggests I should try it again but…meh.
