Old habits die hard (?)

June 25, 2009

So, I’m home and I think the whole world and his dog knows this! My mood has dropped but I’ve been wondering why: is it because I’m home and everywhere has memories of how I felt at a certain time, or is it because it just does naturally?

If it’s the first, then obviously something needs to be done; as of yet I really don’t know. I guess something like isolation, like counsellors etc have to do so they don’t get too involved in their patients’ lives. I’m working on that, trying to work out what to do, as obviously it’s not good! Perhaps just not thinking as much?! Who knows…

If it’s the last, then I can deal with that. Admittedly something still has to be done but in my opinion it isn’t so bad, that I can deal with! It doesn’t upset me as much. So, now I need to work out which it is!

    Counsellors do isolation so they don’t get too involved? Not if they’re any good at it. Counsellors (and therapists) need to be prepared to get as deeply involved as it takes, without holding back. Then, if necessary, they can call on another counsellor or therapist (often misleadingly called a ‘supervisor’) to help them recover quickly.

    But yes, old habits do die hard, and old haunts have ghosts. Personally, I think it’s better for the past to be real in that way, even when real is not all nice.

      I always thought that they had to maintain some distance to try and stop themselves from getting personally involved or something?

      And real definitely isn’t nice!

    >>Perhaps just not thinking as much?!

    I vote for that one.

    I think it’s quite natural for your mood to drop at this time. Your parents’ home is going to be quieter than halls, so you will feel flatter. Don’t forget, you’ve been working hard and stressing out over exams; the aftermath is bound to feel like an anti-climax.

    If your mood keeps dropping, get worried. But, in the meantime, go out, see you old friends etc., eat well, get enough sleep, and all that.

    So say I.

      I shall keep going out, la! And try not to think as much… and maybe stop reading prozac nation? Gee, prozac always sounds like toothpaste to me. Maybe it’d be more effective as toothpaste?!

    Maybe it’s a bit of both? I suggest doing things you enjoy, and I hope your mood lifts soon.

    Take care,

      Yep, I will keep trying to do so! Trips out, seeing people and swimming, and a bit of work to keep myself grounded, hooray!
