That I'm in my mid 40s being told to take DBT courses to help me out. I'm at an age where its to late to change. I refuse to let this old dog learn new tricks. I'm not gonna change thats my decision. I'm old have metastatic cancer so no need ro change my ways. I can't even commit to taking a shower once a month let alone commit to a class twice a week for a year. Uh no. Sorry for being irrational

@Kirtten Hello yes I am medicated I take Lamictal, Abilify, Adderall, Klonopin. I really do not take care of nyself at all. I don't shower, brush my teeth comb my hair or get out of my pjs let alone bed. I lack motivation and am just so tired. I've tried about 90% of the medications out there and nothing.

My ADHD meds help so much. I sometimes take one in bed the minute I wake up and it helps the rest fall into place. I barely functed before the dexies, and this way works really welll, for me at least. I see a psychiatrist regularly too as once I have that right I have more clarity to deal with the psych work. I up the dex dose when I really struggle. But I need my other meds balanced by the psych before i adjust the rest. I struggled without a good psychiatrist – and with regulsr catch ups. Its also normal for me to have bad patches where I just sit on the bathroom floor and can't get into the shower. But even though it doesn't seem like it, those times do pass. X
