So of course I've spent the whole rest of the day curled up on my bed feeling fucking miserable because affirming or not I still opened up all the old wounds again and *that shit hurts* especially when you bring up things that can never be fixed and my goodness I have quite the collection of those
@Sarklor I think CBT based techniques can be useful in managing anxiety for example, but in general I don't like it because
a) there's homework involved, fuck homework, homework is a scam
b) reality sometimes really fucking sucks and trying to hack/trick your brain without working on coming to terms with the very real suck-ness seems a bit capitalist
c) my stupid spicy brain is pretty good at detecting tricks/scams and then going back to being fucked up 🤣
@Sarklor sending solidarity, companionable grief-rage and the certain knowledge even if *stuff* is shit, *you* are not. And that even though it's all brung up and hurting now, it'll settle again.
@froodie We'll see. Nearly 15 years on and I'm no less angry about it, today revealed that much.
@froodie Same. I think I've gotten all the benefit I will from it, back when I was being told "look, we're snowed under and you're not a suicide risk so best we can do is this pamphlet"
