I have been diagnosed with this, my therapist tells me that she is surprised I have never had a breakdown of some sort. CSA, followed up with with a tumultuous home with mum and dad going at it till they divorced. Then I let dad talk me into joining the army (rolls eyes) not my best move. I have had to deal with mum's family most of my life they are comparable to a sun going supernova. I had to wrestle with medical school but finally got through. Now I am sick, just when I should be getting the rewards out of all of that hard work. I am at the age where I have lost so many people, mum and dad included and still I battle this cursed disease. I am not trying to whine , or feel sorry for myself, I am just tired. I have been in the healing process for sometime now and made good progress with that. Yet I can never truly let it all go, it is like it inserted itself into my DNA. Yet I still get up everyday, and get on with it, and will do so till I can't. It is depressing but will all be okay, things generally workout the way they are supposed to.

Have you heard of Joan Borysenko's book "Minding the Body, Mending the Mind"? It might be worth looking into.

Wishing you well....

I also liked Dr. Claire Weekes' "Hope and Help for Your Nerves" which I got on audiobook from the library. But some of her stuff is on YouTube.

Did you know you can get used books on abebooks.com? I check the library first.
