Through years of therapy and recovery, you learn different coping techniques or skills to manage your symptoms. Over time, you saw results and they were proven effective. You remain hopeful and dependent on them.
Then one day, it no longer works. You give it time, try to make it habitual, but it still doesn’t work.
I’ve learned with trying to manage my mental illnesses that I have to be flexible with ongoing management. What worked before may not work later.
I would love to hear your experiences and thoughts regarding this.
