Alaska, I’m truly grateful if my comments can help you or anyone else here. No, I do not belong to any other healing websites. I am on FB and belong to a reptile forum there, as I have a pet snake. That’s it. This is all the school of hard knocks and the benefit of many years of meditation practice (which is very similar to the DBT you are learning), some therapy, and mostly my own self-work. When I was young I was in graduate training to be a psychotherapist but dropped out for many reasons. Now, as I’m older, I have a strong desire to help others who are going through some of the things I’ve been through. I am currently a massage therapist and Reiki healer. I still struggle with my own issues but they are not anything like they used to be. It does get better. I wish when I was in the worst of it there had been forums like this to help me with a road map to recovery. It was before the time of computers, and I felt very isolated then.
