Default GROUNDING: HELP: CONFUSED!

I am someplace between awake and asleep and cannot ground myself. I feel my Dad's presence everywhere and he's scaring me. I know he's thousands of miles away, but he's like an evil spirit that won't leave. I'm scared and confused and locked within my own personal hell.

I saw my T tonight and we did some nurturing work. He is a wonderful therapist. But I'm all confused. I switched. I get really confused when I switch. I feel so lost.

Default Re: GROUNDING: HELP: CONFUSED!

anne i'm so sorry for what youre going through. i've been going through the same thing for weeks. this is whats worked for me. i sit on the edge of my bed or the edge of a chair and hold a pillow very tight and keep my eyes open and remind myself of who i am and where i am and that he is not there. i have olfactory hallucinations and sometimes i go crazy cleaning and that doesnt help. someone here told me about grounding techniques and they do work you just have to give it a chance. i am here if you need me.
wish i could take your pain away. hang in there.

(((((((((((((((((anne and all))))))))))))))))))))

I so know what you're going through. I know you feel isolated and afraid. Know that you're not alone in the fears, ok?

Keep doing alot of "self-talk" right now and hopefully it will help to bring things back around for you. That's about all I can do in times like this...that and reach out for caring hearts.

we care,

kd
