Re: Still feels like a lie

Thanks everyone. I’m sorry for not writing sooner. My therapy is CBT based but my therapist is very holistic in their approach and will incorporate various different things into their practice. I’ve looked into DBT and while I don’t think it’s available where I am I think DBT skills are useful to learn. I’m not a fan of acronyms, though. I think that’s pretty tacky.

Thing is that as far as I’m aware, a lot of these DBT skills are for helping you through a wave of intense emotions, so as to not act out on impulse. But I tend to experience prolonged mood states. Do these skills still apply?
