Setback

I have been doing really well lately to the point of not having to see the psychologist anymore, (though if I feel I need to I can make an appointment to see him). Life has been good and I have even started to enjoy myself. Then yesterday, I had a bit of a setback which has shaken my confidence.Am trying really hard to not be fearful and talk to myself sensibly!! I guess setbacks will happen and I have to face then but it's a horrrible feeling.Just wanted to share as I didn't particularly want my family to know how I was feeling.They have been very supportive and I don't want to disappoint them.

  • Hi jeffju I also have down days but I only have here to say so. Climbing. upwards is very hard and takes lot of effort. So don't keep it to yourself, I found this site good for just saying how you feel.

    Stay strong. Uchaf

  • Thanks uchaf. That is why this site is so brilliant. Full of understanding people , knowing exactly how you feel. Thanks for replying.

  • Setbacks are often like the 'weather' that passes across us - we can observe them but know that they will go, If they become more static - like a 'climate' then it is advisable to seek more help - or if the 'weather' is extremely severe and hard to cope with - like a tornado. (Just coming through that stage now.)

    Take care

  • Thanks so much for that. Felt a wee bit anxious today but think I can work my way through it otherwise i will return to psychologist. Hope you are feeling better soon.
