Went to the personality provision today

(1/2) > >>

Hi all,

I went to the personality provision today, we had a long talk lasting approximately 2 hours after which the councillor said that although I have traits. He said I had the coping mechanisms to deal with them and I've been discharged.

Well, that's a bit of a surprise.  How do you feel about it?

I feel really good about it. To be honest I've made quite a bit of progress with my behaviour on my own. My fear of abandonment, when its triggered I know what it is and can deal with the situation as normal but I am aware it's been triggered but I know this emotion is from the past and not now so I don't react. I've learned a lot from being self aware, I understand my personality modes and put myself back into logical adult really quick. The councillor said something about the report my T wrote could be about someone else. This year I've changed so much.

On the way out I was on the landing and there was a guy there. He'd just come out of the PD department, looked quite scruffy and had cuts on his arm that looked like self harm. I called a lift then turned around and said "Are you okay bud?" He looked a little surprised I'd acknowledged him. I then said "Are you going down?" He said "I'll take the stairs." So I said "Are you sure? Jump in here." While I held the door open. He declined but looked really happy that he was getting spoken to like and equal, as if he didn't know how to take it. So I finished by saying "Okay, take care mate."

I finished there and went straight over the road and spoke to the head of my local mind. I'm going to email him about doing some voluntary work.

Wow, that was quick, but I'm so glad you're positive about it & making loads of progress.


My C.B.T. Therapist has said the difference in me is amazing. In the last 4 weeks or so all the lessons I've been learning from therapy, Internet and books has totally changed the way I think and act. What I have been finding is that my fear of abandonment goes straight into my inner personality which sets off my vulnerable child mode. Because I've been aware of it I've been been dealing with it and not letting it affect the way I interact
