I am able to regulate my thoughts and emotions.

Treatment: DBT 

Treatment period: 2 years and 2 months 

I was able to find my lost self. Finding myself allowed me to take control of myself. I was able to manage the thoughts and emotions that have been exhausting me until now.  

 

There is nothing more difficult than starting the treatment in the beginning. Not knowing what the outcome would be, I felt stuck when I was told to do things throughout the treatment. The treatment process was also not easy. On some days, I could not reflect on myself nor regulate my emotions, and on other days I was overwhelmed with emotions and had a hard time. When I was feeling such pain, the treatment process felt like a torment to me. However, the torment made me stronger as a result.  

 

Thanks to my strong-willed and active participation with the treatment clinicians’ support, I no longer feel excessive anxiety from uncertainty in life and I am able to regulate my thoughts and emotions. Thank you to everyone who believed in me until the end of the treatment.
