How Can I Feel More Grounded In Recovery


LINK > https://urlin.us/2tjg12





When I first stepped foot into recovery I could not be alone. I was a full fledged insomniac who could go 3-4 days without sleeping more than a 20 minute cat nap with one eye partially open. Reason being that I hated being alone with my own thoughts. If I kept myself constantly busy and not alone I could run away from the things I wanted to continue to run away from; even in recovery.


Bipolar disorder (BD) is considered a severe and lifelong mental health diagnosis. However, there is growing evidence of people defying the odds and recovering. Processes underlying recovery remain poorly understood. This study aimed to explore these recovery processes and extend on the length of recovery defined within previous research. Twelve people previously diagnosed with BD, who had not experienced an episode of depression and/or mania for four or more years, were interviewed. Standardised diagnostic interviews (Structured Clinical Interview for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-V, Research version) confirmed past diagnosis and recovery time. Qualitative methodology via grounded theory was used to analyse these personal accounts. The analysis revealed 10 overarching categories of what participants reported to be important in their recovery: support, recognition of the problem, believing that things can change and not giving up, instinctive curiosity, medication, psychological therapy, becoming the director of your own life, changing how I think, accepting who I am and how I feel, and looking after me. A model was developed to represent how categories were related. The study was limited by recruitment not leading to the inclusion of people who had distanced themselves from the label of BD. Potential transdiagnostic recovery processes also require further direct exploration. Critically, the study highlights that following a diagnosis of BD, people do experience long-term recovery achieved through self-determined pathways and that being able to live the life you want is therefore achievable. This challenges current diagnostic perspectives and societal messages of lifelong conditions.


Boost your energy and motivation. If you're struggling to find the energy or motivation to exercise, start by playing your favorite music and moving around or dancing. Once you get moving, you'll start to feel more energetic.


Generally speaking, grounding techniques are most effective when you use them as soon as you start to feel bad. If you wait until your emotions have become overwhelming, it will be more challenging to center your mind and bring yourself back to a stable baseline.


Maintaining your sobriety is about more than simply abstaining from addictive substances. For a lasting recovery, you need access to a full continuum of care that takes a holistic view of your unique needs.


Traumatic events disrupt life, leaving you feeling ungrounded, frightened, and often overwhelmed. Terrifying events strip you of your sense of safety. The experience of distressing or traumatic events is, to some degree, inevitable. However, with sufficient support, it is possible to avoid the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


In EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy we prepare clients for therapy by developing imagined resources for trauma recovery. Visualizing a safe or peaceful place is of primary importance because your body and mind will not release the effects of stress and trauma until you can feel safe now. You can cultivate your imagined safe place from the comfort of your home.


When a person has experienced trauma, the alarm system in the brain can become hypersensitive to perceived threats, and lead to these responses happening much more frequently even when there is no inherent danger anymore. When we can recognize this response is happening, we can more effectively manage our resulting thoughts, feelings, and actions.


Findings suggested that recovery cannot be conceptualised separately from an understanding of the lived experience of personality disorders. This experience was characterised by a complexity of ambiguous, interrelating and conflicting feelings, thoughts and actions as individuals tried to cope with tensions between internally and externally experienced worlds. Our analysis was suggestive of a process of recovering or, for some, discovering a sense of self that can safely coexist in both worlds.


We asked interviewees what recovery meant to them, and they answered very much in the context of the lived experience of personality disorders described above. Interviewees talked about recovery in terms of thinking, feeling and acting in different ways that suggested to us the potential for internal and external worlds to become, to a certain extent, reconciled. We suggest that this represents a process of recovering or, for some, discovering a sense of self where they could safely coexist in both worlds, without damage to the self or of having to retreat once again into the internal world. This understanding of recovery is represented in Fig. 2 below and described in the analysis that follows:


Understandings of recovery in the context of lived experience of personality disorders. Inward facing arrows indicate the thoughts, feelings and actions reported by participants that suggest the potential to reconcile internally and externally experienced worlds. The intersection of the circles represents processes of recovering or discovering a sense of self that coexists in both internally and externally experienced worlds


However interviewees also described what we understood to be a virtuous cycle in their recovery, where forming positive relationships could reinforce positive changes in their thoughts and feelings, and vice versa:


Through capturing this discourse of lived experience we were able to explore understandings of recovery that were relevant and meaningful to our interviewees (Fig. 2). Interviewees talked about recovery in terms of living in the outside world without having to isolate themselves continually in order to feel safe. That very specific understanding of recovery can be articulated as an expression of:


What does it mean to have high-functioning borderline personality disorder It does not mean that you escape the shame and suffering. Treatment for BPD helps you to become more grounded, to better manage your emotional journey, and to get what you really want out of life.


SMART Recovery is a fresh approach to addiction recovery. SMART stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. This is more than an acronym: it is a transformative method of moving from addictive substances and negative behaviors to a life of positive self-regard and willingness to change.


SMART was created for people seeking a self-empowering way to overcome addictive problems. What has emerged is an accessible method of recovery, one grounded in science and proven by more than a quarter-century of experience teaching practical tools that encourage lasting change.


In our mutual support meetings, offered online and in-person, participants design and implement their own recovery plan to create a more balanced, purposeful, fulfilling, and meaningful life. SMART provides specialized meetings and resources for a variety of communities, including Family & Friends, veterans, and more.


Wellness assists us in establishing boundaries, creating healthy habits and loving who we are. Practicing wellness allows us to take our own journey to create healthy, happy, fulfilling lives. This framework helps prevent the misuse of substances and helps those in recovery feel more grounded in their sobriety.


Fast Facts provides 10 of the most important scientifically-grounded facts about recovery. Expand each fact to learn more about the supporting research.Pathways to Recovery outlines myriad ways (clinical, non-clinical, and self-management) in which individuals with substance use disorders can engage in a process of recovery-related change.The Brain in Recovery looks at how the brain changes as individuals enter and progress through addiction recovery, exploring the connections between neurobiological processes and recovery-related behaviors.


Survivors in the immediate vicinity of an explosion may be struggling with physical injury and experiencing a range of strong thoughts and feelings. When such tragedies occur, people struggle to make sense of the destruction, loss and emotional distress. We know from the survivors of past tragedies that people are resilient, and, as difficult as it may seem at the time, survivors can and do go on to live fulfilling lives. The information and recommendations in this resource can help survivors take preliminary steps to emotional recovery.


Recognize emotional change. Identify the feelings that you may be experiencing. Understand that they are likely normal reactions to the tragic situation. You will regain a sense of self and feel more grounded with time.


Take a breath. Count to 10 before acting on issues and when feeling stressed. Ask yourself if this action is the best for you and your family. This will help you think clearly, control impulses and become more resilient.


While grounded in the same foundations of disaster response and recovery, there are several differences between PFA and SPR. PFA is a supportive intervention for use in the immediate aftermath of disasters and terrorism. SPR is used in the weeks and months following disaster and trauma, after the period where PFA has been utilized or when more intensive intervention is needed. The delivery of PFA is defined in terms of days or weeks after a disaster (timing will depend on the circumstances of the post-disaster setting). SPR is intended to assist disaster survivors after safety, security, and other vital and immediate needs have been met and when the community is rebuilding. In some cases, SPR may be delivered one week after a disaster, as a follow up to the initial PFA response, and in other cases it may be appropriate to provide this assistance weeks, months, or even years after a major event. The timing will be partially dependent on how devastating the disaster was to community resources and infrastructure. 153554b96e
