A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

How Do I ...?

For Now
There is a lot going on in therapy and I just can't put it into words.  I guess, I'm still processing and am not yet ready to share.  But, I am getting ready to do so. 

I'm depressed and feeling hopeless which is partly due to my husband working 6 days per week and at least 10 hours per day.  Last night, he worked 13 hours.  He is also working one day every weekend.  This has been going on since March.  I worry about him.  I miss him, but it helps that we have specific times during the day that we talk.

With my eating disorder, I've been doing well with eating the six times per day.  I can be anything as long as I eat six times per day.  I review it with my psychiatrist and my therapist.  Every Monday and Thursday my therapist and I talk about it which has been quite helpful and I can definitely see how it is really tied into my emotions as a way of coping.

For me it's very important to express my thoughts, the pictures I carry inside of me, maybe because it's important to get them out.” ~ Marilyn Manson
