email from my work... who put me on a leave of absence (telling me I can come back for inventory and again after I am "well") they want me to work on Monday... it's holiday weekend and they're short staffed
my therapist is out of town (actually out of the country) and told me to text or call this other therapist (old DBT group leader who I’ve done meal support with — and am doing another with on Monday) if I was restricting, exercising too much (I’m not supposed to be…), wanting pills, etc…
Feels awkward though. but today hasn’t been the best… and I still am having urges
my therapist had me create a little book to flip through when I feel like restricting… to help me choose food, get through that inner dialogue that tries to tell me not to eat, and to go through different skills I can use depending on what I’m feeling (or thinking)…
Anyways… I made one that she really liked.. so I thought I would just make a more generic version with a lot of the same stuff… I made each page 5 x 7 so that if you print it out and don’t have cardstock you could put it on larger index cards.
Anyways: not a therapist. not a doctor. this just happens to be something that was suggested that i make and i thought i would share
you can find it HERE via photos or via PDF download (if you have problems downloading let me know!)
