  1. I’m having a hard time finding your DVD on dbt. I’m the on that is waiting dbt for 18 months. But I’m starting an intro next week and I’m going to see addictions next week. I’ve been hospitalize twice recently and 3 suiside attempts since may. I refuse meds right now and I’m only drinking wine 3 times a week. But I’m so sick in between drinks. I feel so tired n sick all the time and think I’m dying of cancer or a rare illness…I don’t know where I’m goin with this. I’m now listening you to talk about pray. I can’t pray…..which is ironic when I’m one of jehovahs witnesses. In my religion we don’t talk about this and we’re not encouraged to get worldly help. We are expected to rely on God and to do his will daily which is to go door to door and teach n preach.

    • Hi Hunni, I am so sorry for such a late reply. Thank you for your comments. I know due to religious reasons you probably won’t want to take your meds – and I can’t tell you that you must. But I can say that whatever God is out there would want you to have a happy life. I personally am not religious but I am spiritual. I believe there is a higher power out there but I have no idea what it is. I believe in being kind to ourselves and to others. Cllearly right now you are really struggling. I personally know that medication can help take the edge off. It doesn’t solve everything but it helps enough that we can then look in to doing therapy. My videos on DBT are under my playlist on YouTube called ‘The Solutions’. If you go to my recoverymum.com home page there is also a section called The Solutions and the DBT videos are all under here. I do not want to go in to the whole religious thing as I don’t think it’s appropriate but I do think if there is a God out there he/she is a kind one and certainly wouldn’t want us to try and take our own lives. We only have one life – and it can be amazing. We just have to fight for our recovery…but it is so so worth it. You CAN do this. I think you need to be kind to yourself and start looking at how you can start your recovery process. You do not have to go on suffering. Sending you lots of love xxx
