Advice & Tips: Using the computer and its search engine on the internet I learnt a great deal about my problems, was able to self diagnose which was later ran by the doctor (psyciatrist) who confirmed my diagnosis. Late I started using dialectal behaviour therapy using their daily diary/record sheets which in the end had a big impact on my daily life I was able to break from the confines of psycological withdrawal/isolation. Now I am learning to mix with people again first on a small scale slightly increasing over a period of time. This also impacts greatly on my lack of range of movement due to spinal damage and breathlessness due to the fybrosis.
