Not everyone is offered DBT – sometimes people are on a waiting list for 2 years or more and other people can’t afford it. What does it mean for these people? Should they just give up on recovery if they are not offered therapy? Absolutely not! Recovery is possible for everyone.
hi my lovelies today I have my little guest not easy ha ha ha she's really poorly at the moment and you wouldn't believe it because she's still full of smiles she had a temperature and she's got really nasty little cough and her little voice is going switch prizes like they put that brat off the little monkey let me have a look ah this card is a little sway oh it's a smile we're going to eat it on you pusher pusher mm-hmm do they own doing video requests from rainbow girl hi and Rainmaker ask me is recovery still possible if DBT is not offered to you and I would say yes 100% recovery is still possible however recovery is more difficult than less support you have so if you have little or no support it is gonna be a struggle it might take slightly longer but it is still possible if on the other hand you are on a DVT course you have therapists that sees you regularly and you have a big support network you're going to find recoveries a lot easier it's not easy it's never just easy because it's a process there's some time oh you okay some time if we're going forward now you need to feel like we've gone back and that's quite painful because we start doubting ourselves doubting our recovery and it's just not nice recovery is never easy but the biggest support network you have the easier it is and as you guys know I am doing some work for the black sheep a project for my opinion for somewhere to reduce ah talking of pins I am sending all your pins out today the reason it's taken me away because I wanted to send them all together and I got all the requests on every different type of social media so it's kind of going through them all not wanting to miss anyone which I really hope I haven't I was astounded at just how in demand they are it's an absolutely ridiculous amount but that's fantastic and thank you so much but yeah I've been obviously handwriting oh wait myself because I didn't just want to print up something I wanted them all done by May they need so whereas I was gonna get the office to send the pins out from America to the people in America and I was gonna send the ones to the UK etc I then decided actually I'm just gonna send all of them it's more personal that way so yeah finally they're all done they're in the envelopes address is on and I will be going to the post office today where my partner gets home to have little lady so I don't have to bring around Paulie so yeah the pins are coming yeah and I can't wait to see all your pictures with them it's gonna be great right what was I saying yes I'm doing work for the Black Sea project as you know I am heading up the I got this section and that is aimed at people with border lines and I am trying to include there's much stuff in there that will help you in your recovery stuff that you can do yourself at home stuff you can look at like a settlement self-help section cuz I know it's difficult and I know not everyone does get the treatment that they need and sometimes people are offered the treatment but it's a ridiculous waiting time like two years it's like so much can happen in two years I need I need help now and there are others that they can get they can get therapy if they have the money but they just don't have money and I just think it's so unfair I've said this before I think everyone deserves equal chance at recovery and say that's what I'm trying to include and I wrote up a big document last night and all my ideas I think we're having a meeting today and I'm really hoping that I will be able to do stuff that will help you guys there will be videos I will be doing videos for the black seed project we will be having other people doing videos as well so you don't just get bored with my face and I thought a variety would be good so yeah lots happening there like I said it's gonna be launching in a couple of months I will be giving you more details closer to the time I will be giving you like hey what are you doing what are you - please don't pull it off please do included oh okay forgot what I was saying now I figure out what I was saying now so yeah regarding like if you DBT is not offered yes absolutely recovery is still possible learn as much as you can about borderline what videos but kind of be selective like when you go on Google I hear a lot of people say there's so much negative stuff out there if you start reading something and it's negative don't carry on reading it why do that to yourself because there is a huge stigma attached there are a lot of myths attached that just aren't true so you want to look for something that's positive something that's real as well because it's all gray if it's all hairy's and balancing lights then everything's pretty and wonderful but it's just not real and but read up um the more you learn about it more you learn about yourself the more self-aware you'll become I say self-help books are fantastic and they don't just have to be based like on borderline they can be on anything and just read a number of them if you don't have the money maybe join the library there are always ways and like someone self-help book you might find fantastic someone else just doesn't like it so is trial just try lots of different things I know you can go on Google and look up about DBT I think there's possibly worksheets that you can print off and you can do stuff so this you can actively do stuff to help yourself as well don't think therapy's not offered so I'm just not going to bother it's not worth it I'm not going to recover because that's not the case you you have every chance of recovery like I said it might just be a bit more of a struggle trying to find time to do it but what are you doing wiggler oh you talk to a card snail man snail ffff oh yeah um so yeah just don't give up don't give up don't give up especially if you think well I'm just not like it because you can and you can do a lot towards helping yourself and hopefully in the meantime therapy will come up and become a real option for you let's go stop this video guys because she was wiggling so much she's trying to grab the mic a little cough yeah like say bye everybody I happy a day yeah you give me little smile he's that bad be he'd have baby yeah she's not herself today she's usually so smiley all the time and she's still smiling but like I said she's just not herself right my lovelies I'm gonna leave it there ma love you oh hey
