    Look Back on your 2021 Therapy Achievements

    Wow, a huge achievement! Having co-conscious parts involves a lot of work and is not easy, well done! And so many other achievements on top of it, congrats! It is hard though, knowing it's kind of a double edged sword as more difficult memories will come your way and I have to remind myself...

    Wow, some amazing achievements either through therapy or on your own. I don't think it really matters which as long as you can see positive signs of progress in your life. Some of my greatest achievements involved no therapy. I come and go to it when I think it has a place in my life and...

    In some more upbeat news, amazingly two of the young boys in the accident have now been moved out of ICU and one was even feeling well enough to request pizza to eat. How either of them survived I don't know and although they still have a long road ahead of them recovery wise it wonderful news...

    That is one heck of a list @Movingforward10 ! Well done, that's amazing! I struggle with the 1st one on the list, had my last while I was out to it under anaesthetic (as I was having a laproscopy anyway). Due for another one and dr has ordered me a self-test kit for the first time, so I'm...

    I know what you mean, this can be quite tricky at times. It is something I still struggle with sometimes as it can be hard for me to get words out sometimes, but if I can't get them out verbally I write them down for my T. I think this kind of honesty strengthens what you can achieve in...

    I was thinking today about the year that is almost over and what it's been like. It was a difficult year in many ways with lots of new memories surfacing for me, but I wanted to look upon the year in a positive light and consider what I have achieved. This year I tackled so many memories of...

    My husband says that... and it's never made sense to me either! 😆 We also say 'No shit sherlock' here in Aus. Today, in Australia it's an unofficial day called 'Gravy Day' by some, because of an Australian artist called Paul Kelly who wrote an also unofficial Christmas song called 'How to Make...

    Another child passed away today from the tragedy in the small town I grew up in. That makes a total of 6 with other children still in critical condition. There's such a heavy hearted vibe on the leadup to Xmas here. A relative whom has only been a paramedic for around 12months was the first on...

    I'm sick to f'ing death of my mother in-law atm. I've been off work with f'ing reactive arthritis and also dealing with a f'ckload more flashbacks and she is constantly f'ing unsubtly dropping hints about me returning to work. Like it's on her f'ing timeframe and like she f'ing knows what's...

    I live in a very small state with a small population, we are all very interconnected and today has been horrific for us all and our teaching community. Today is the last day of school for children here before their big summer/Xmas break. One school was having a day of celebration and had hired...

    I'm pretty new myself, but it's a really interesting discovery process as I'm learning! :)

    That's fantastic. I have just ordered an introductory book by the Dalai Lama to reading during what will be our big summer break here, that is beginning at the end of this week. I'm very much looking forward to understanding it better and working out how to use it best in my life and recovery.

    My husband does a beer advent calendar every year - one craft beer a day in December instead of chocolates! This year he extended it to be the second half of November as well, which he called 'Excusemas'. 🤣

    Mindfulness, meditation and buddhism

    Yes, I am really drawn to these ideas. I have already found the concept of 'impermanence' to be very beneficial and I only read about it a week ago! It's pretty awesome having a monk as a T!

    How do I get help, too scared to talk

    Much of what you describe is very familiar to me. By the sounds of it, your family could be mine. I'm so glad you got away from them, there is no room for people like that in our lives. I am currently dealing with reactive arthritis and I feel I am treated much the same way. My rheumatologist...

    Mindfulness, meditation and buddhism

    It is tricky and I am just learning. I must confess though, I am taking what I like and believe for myself, not necessarily all. I too like the values of generosity, proper conduct etc. I do not really think I like or believe in the concept of reincarnation, but I think that is the beauty of...

    I'm so with you on that one! My boss is a d1ckhead and avoids any responsibility even though they're getting paid the big $ and most of my colleagues are stupid gossiping wh0res. 🤬

    So f'ing angry. Just because I'm a f'ing teacher at the same school my kid goes to, doesn't mean I don't have any f'ing parental rights! Just f'ing ignore me and don't talk to me about my f'ing child, whether you are the f'ing class teacher or principal. It's f'ing sh*thouse and ridiculous and...

    Mindfulness, meditation and buddhism

    I think there is such a difference between religion and a sense of spirituality. Some people refer to buddhism as a religion, but others don't and for me I don't see it as a religion. I'm entirely atheist but I believe in a spirituality that relates to our mind and our connection to nature. I...

    Mindfulness, meditation and buddhism

    My T began me on a journey of yoga for body awareness and mindful relaxation. I am still doing some yoga, although I have reactive arthritis currently so can only do small amounts, but I'm becoming very interested in meditation and the principles of buddhism. I don't believe in a god or deity...

    This is a weird, random question, but does anybody else have an older person as a friend on Facebook that sometimes just makes their day with their lack of understanding of how to use facebook! I have a friend's mother and she is constantly just mistakenly doing things or just doing things that...

    Hahaha! No worries (no harm done)... or no 'wuckers' as we also say in Aussie lingo (it's a quite obvious combination of the word 'worries' and 'f*cking', because we love to include swearing in anything, even if it's not necessary.... but we're also extremely lazy! So no f'ing worries turns...

    As an aside, it has been rumoured where I live lately and in the Aussie news that Chris Hemsworth has just bought a property not far from me in a tiny town with only several thousand people here in Aus! So I think maybe we're going to become besties now. Yeah nah. 😂

    Alf....! From a Australian tv drama (soap) called 'Home and Away'. Heath Ledger began on this show too. A lot of our Aussie turned Hollywood actors started on either this or another TV drama called 'Neighbours', which was the show that Margot Robbie started on and the UK pop princess Kylie...
