What Has Helped You the Most with your Healing Process?

IbizaMalta:

I just wanted to ask you to name one or two of the things that help you the most with healing. (Please just one or two things) For me, it is a combo of having a good support team and keeping a journal!

Take your time and think about what has helped you most and if nothing seems to be helping right now, please know that will very likely change if you stay on your healing path.

Thank you,

Ketamine, beyond a doubt. Prozac easily solved my MDD, but didn't do anything for my CPTSD or anhedonia. Once my ketamine dose bumped up from 300 -> 400 mg SubL my anhedonia cracked.

I should add that after titrating up to 300, then 400 mg I began intensive psychotherapy; 6 hours a week. I think that enabled me to capitalize on the neuroplasticity ketamine created.

And, I found Coherence Therapy based on Memory Reconsolidation theory. I think that's been very helpful as well.

For me, it takes a village. Connection has been the single most valuable tool (something I used to avoid like the plague). I attend CoDA (Codependents Anonymous) and other programs. Learning to connect with others during and in between meetings was a slow process but the most worthwhile to pursue. My tendency toward isolating never got me anywhere, that's for sure although I still enjoy a very substantial dose of alone time but in much more healthy way. Meditation would be the next most important to me, absolutely essential to my wellness. Journaling and reading/education with inspirational literature, working on boundaries and self-compassion are all a huge part of my journey.
