Advice & Tips: Public transportation is not practical here unfortunately. I am usually not able to drive myself to my appointments. Friends used to drive me, but they got too busy. Now my husband works from home one day each week so he can take me to my appointments. My functioning is greatly increased as a result of my weekly therapy sessions. Sometimes I don't want to go because I don't feel well enough to work on any challenge, but my therapist urges me to meet with her anyway so she can monitor me. I guess it's like being an outpatient who has to check in regularly. I am so challenged by day-to-day living, I am not able to work on long-term goals. I look forward to when I can.
Cost: $50-99 monthly

Advice & Tips: Keep going. Don't quit when the pain starts. I have run from therapy my whole life. I go for a little while and as soon as I start to feel things I run away. I don't like the feelings anymore now than I used to, but I am 45 years old and tired of running and exhausted from carrying this crap around in my head my whole life.

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.
