Holly and I discuss chapter 9 of Claire Weekes’ “Hope And Help For Your Nerves”. This chapter discusses the nature of recovery and the road to being yourself again. We touched on a bunch of topics here.  These include:

* Your symptoms will not immediately go away, and may even worsen during recovery.

* You cannot simply decide to not be afraid. You must LEARN to not be afraid.

* We discuss the use of medication in conjunction with recovery.

* Keeping occupied – not being wholly consumed at all times with recovery – is essential.

* Quick recovery is possible and does happen for some people.

* A big part of recovery is understanding that what you think is keeping you stuck.

* Setbacks can and likely will happen, but they’re not really setbacks if you frame them properly and learn from them.
