Mental Health APPS

Mental Health APPS

I created charts to help myself while in therapy.  I’ve made these charts available for mental health professionals to download in hope to encourage a much needed rise in self-advocacy. In group therapy, you get pages and pages of loose-leaf paper on self-help topics but rarely a page to encourage writing or recording one’s progress.(…)

Impulse Control Therapy

Impulse Control Therapy

I was given a page called Stimulus Control Intervention recommending ways to intervene the Body Focused Repetitive Behavior.  I’ve added a few that apply to my situation.  Please comment new ideas I could add the list.  Hope this helps! General Remove tweezers, needles, safety pins, sharp objects from the house (& purse) If the behavior(…)

Self Monitoring

Self Monitoring

Self Monitoring is a crucial step in treating an Impulse Control Disorder.  We created a self monitoring form to help you easily track a number of factors. It is an 8½ x 11 inches page that you fold into four. We call it the “Impulse Monitoring Card” We created 3 versions: Version 1 – This(…)

Habit Reversal Training

Habit Reversal Training

I’m learning how to manage Dermatillomania, an Impulse Control Disorder. My therapist says it’s not about stopping the urge. The body is reacting / expressing a need and I am going to learn how to deal with it in a different way. Example, instead of allowing the urge be expressed via skin picking, the urge(…)

Rewire Your Brain – Mindfulness

Rewire Your Brain – Mindfulness

Some months ago I talked about the Vicious Cycle in treating forms of Depression. I learned that medication is effective in treating the most severe symptoms.  But it is intended as a band-aid while you work on the source of the illness. That begs the question, “What is the source?” Recently, my therapist shed some(…)

stigma of mental illness

stigma of mental illness

Mental illness is just that: Illness. We often forget that. There is always suffering with pain, but with the type of anguish that mental illness brings, pain takes on a sometimes more sinister feeling. I might suffer some pain if I break my leg, but it will eventually heal and I will walk again without(…)

Desiderata

Desiderata

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons,(…)

Overwhelming

Overwhelming

Why can’t I just be “normal” and not feel all of these overwhelming feelings? Why can’t I just act like the way other people do and be “happy” or at least pretend I am? I am in a constant battle between who I think I am, who I want to be, and what others want(…)

MAOI

MAOI

Monoamine oxidase inhibitors - MAOIs Because of potentially lethal dietary and drug interactions, monoamine oxidase inhibitors have been reserved as a last line of treatment, used only when other classes of antidepressant drugs have failed. MAOIs act by inhibiting the activity of monoamine oxidase, thus preventing the breakdown of monoamine neurotransmitters and thereby increasing their availability. There are two isoforms of monoamine oxidase, MAO-A(…)
