Does anyone else here have diffiuculty identifying issues in therapy? Most of the time, I can't seem to connect the dots. For example, besides being temporarily unemployed (meaning come July I will work again), nothing much terrible is happening yet I'm preparing and practicing how to kill myself most effectively. I seriously don't get it. I haven't been near nutty family for a while so that isn't it. It's like there is nothing to talk about, I just want to die. I just know that has to be illogical. I am officially DID (multiple personailties); however, just because one part of me is unhappy doesn't mean the rest of me has to go. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Anyone can relate or explain?

Maybe the rest of you can push away the unhappy thoughts for now, and tell yourself that now is not the time to feel unhappy, and that the best time to deal with the unhappy thoughts is with the therapist.

Maybe you can leave that issue to therapy time, and together with your therapist you can try to figure it out.

Maybe there is something that happened in the past that you never consciously worked through, and it's sitting somewhere deep inside you and not letting go. Can you talk to the part of you that is not happy, just like you would have a conversation with another person? Ask her how she feels and why.

I suspect it is all tied up surrounding abuse issues but I just don't know. too much of a tangled mess. can't talk to that other part. one track mind. die die die thoughts and nothing behind it. it's weird.

I wonder if hypnosis might help. I don't have any personal experience with it, but I've heard a lot of good things.

Munkster,
Sorry to hear how bad u are feeling right now. It must feel confusing to feel something so strongly, and not understand from where it originates.

I have a suggestion;
Have u ever tried art therapy? u dont have to be artistic, although if u r, then thats great.
I have found it helpful in uncovering the unconscious on a deeper level. You may be able to reach some understanding as to why these "dying" thoughts are plauging you.

Hope u feel better really soon.
