A Note to another Blogger

Hello, my name is Jeannette I’m 31. I’ve been diagnosed with Bipolar 2, Anxiety, BPD and Hardcore Depression. muhahah I know that feeling. Just start thinking about how you can take care of yourself. Do it little by little and things you enjoy. Make a list of things you really actually like doing. I have to take it in baby steps. It’s hard and some days I just can’t get out of bed. and guess what I believe is that it is okay. You are doing just fine. Much love and good vibes in your direction. Please feel free to contact me my email is or find me on Facebook Jeannette N. Whalen. 🙂 Anyone who reads this and is struggling, please send me a message. It’s all about trying to feel better and finding peace within ourselves.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

From: WebMD Medical Reference Reviewed by Smitha Bhandari, MD on February 21, 2018
DBT was initially designed to treat people with suicidal behavior and borderline personality disorder. But it has been adapted for other mental health problems that threaten a person’s safety, relationships, work, and emotional well-being.

What’s Unique About Dialectical Behavioral Therapy?

The term “dialectical” comes from the idea that bringing together two opposites in therapy — acceptance and change — brings better results than either one alone.
A unique aspect of DBT is its focus on acceptance of a patient’s experience as a way for therapists to reassure them — and balance the work needed to change negative behaviors.

    • Exactly. It’s is so much fun. Therapist are always dumbfounded that I’m functioning as well as I am. Sadly, I feel the opsite when I get home. It’s almost as if it’s not taken seriously. Only due to the fact that the parents l
      Perhaps doesn’t understand. When I try to explain my diagnosis I hear the sound of many crickets.


      • I had to go through a lot of therapy before I truly started functioning well. And people that don’t have mental illness have no clue about it even when you try and explain it to them they can’t even comprehend it. I don’t even try anymore. It’s not that they don’t care. It’s just like we are speaking a foreign language to them.
