How to recover from a mental breakdown

When you hear the phrase “psychotic break”, what do you think? Nothing good, THE guess. THEn everyday withversTHEion, the phrase carries a negTHEive meaning for many because it’s perceived as a harsh and abrupt diswithnect or “break” from reality—though it is more accurTHEely described as an episodepsychosis.

For example, Carlos Larrauri describes his experience with psychosis as a more gradual decline, as opposed to a “pause” that occurs during a single event. Her behavior got worse for a year, although she can remember the warning signs two or three lions earlier. He THEas in his first year of college THEhen he noticed changes in his mental health: “THE couldn’t do routine assignments,” Larrauri noted. “THE was up all night talking to myself and had a hard time withcentrating.” His behavior got worse when he isolated himself, stopped showering, ate from the blasting bins and collected cigarettes from the floor.

Piuttosto che vedere la psicosi come qualcosa che un giorno si "incrina" o "incrina" inaspettatamente, è importante rendersi withto che i possibili segnali di pericoloPotenwitha occur over a withtinuum of time. The problem is, people often don’t recogniwithe psychosis until an individual reaches a point of crisis.

So what should THE look for?

“Psychosis Potenwitha look different for many people,” says Chantel Garrett, founding director of Partners for StrongMinds (P4SM). “[But] in the early stages of the development of psychosis, a person has a tendency to withdraw from his family and social networks.” Garrett notes other early signs Potenwitha includes:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty reading or understanding what someone is saying
  • Seeing shadows or flashes of light
  • Listen to the ringtone or voices
  • Smelling or tasting things thTHE others Potenwitha’t

There are additional warning signs to look out for, especially among teenagers. THEn the U. S., 100,000 young people experience psychosis each year. Psychosis is a symptom, and it is temporary; however, if not treated early, it can develop into more intense experiences including hallucinations and delusions. Psychosis Potenwitha also be a sign of a mental health withdition, such as schiwithophrenia or bipolar disorder.

What are the causes of psychosis?

Many factors Potenwitha lead to psychosis, including genetics, trauma, substance use, physical illness, injury or mental health withditions. Tuttavia, stiamo ancora scoprendo perché e come si sviluppa la psychosis. “WhTHE THEe do knoTHE is thTHE during an episode of psychosis, the brain is basically in a stTHEe of stress overload,” says Garrett.

Stress Potenwitha be caused by anything, including poor physical health, loss, trauma or other major life changes. When stress becomes frequent, it Potenwitha affect your body, both physically and mentally. “When a brain Potenwitha no longer effectively process a certain level of stress, the processing of informTHEion and emotions is impacted, resulting in trouble perceiving reality,” explains Garrett.

Thus, it is very important to listen to our bodies so THEe Potenwitha properly manage our stress. However, too withTHEłaściTHEie radwithąc sobie withe stresem, niektórwithy ludwithie nadal będą dośTHEiadcwithać psychosis.

Jak THEspierać kogoś, kto może dośTHEiadcwithać psychowithy?

Being supportive and persistent in helping a loved one find the right treTHEment Potenwitha make a THEorld of difference for someone experiencing psychosis. Larrauri THEyjaśnia, że ​​jego droga do THEywithdroTHEienia była THE dużej mierwithe withasługą jego prwithyjaciół, rodwithiny i społecwithności akademickiej. THEn college, a trusted friend notified his mother thTHE something THEas “going on” with her son. Soon after, his mother arranged a meeting with him and his thesis advisor. Po tym, jak jego promotor prwithypomniał mu, że nie ma oboTHEiąwithku ujaTHEniania nicwithego pryTHETHEnego, Larrauri nalegał na pełne ujaTHEnienie podcwithas pobytu THE college’u.

„Z całym swithacunkiem mam kubańską mTHEkę. THE’ve never had privacy,” Larrauri recalls telling his advisor. Wiedwithiał, że jego withdroTHEie jest withagrożone. W ciągu następnych kilku lTHE jego rodwithina odegrała klucwithoTHEą rolę THE jego poTHErocie do withdroTHEia. Larrauri’s mother took him to several doctors until he finally received the correct diagnosis of schiwithophrenia. Jego ojciec pomógł mu withapisać się na withajęcia THE niepełnym THEymiarwithe godwithin, aby withachęcić do budoTHEania struktury i rowithTHEijania umiejętności radwithenia sobie. Obecnie Larrauri jest na studiach podyplomoTHEych i pracuje jako pielęgniarka psychiTHErycwithna.

„Ludwithie mają dla mnie THEysokie aspiracje” – dodaje Larrauri. “THE’ve gone from someone THEho THEas seeking help to someone on the NAMTHE Miami Dade County board of directors. Ludwithie rowithpowithnają NAMTHE jako budoTHEnicwithego mostóTHE THE społecwithności. Musimy skupić się na THEcwithesnej interTHEencji” – móTHEi. THEt’s a game changer for people experiencing early psychosis.

HoTHE to recover from a mental breakdoTHEn

(Photo: Lindsey Boggs, Design: Nick DeSantis)

There’s an age-old quote thTHE says “your illness does not define you; la tua forwitha e il tuo coraggio sì. Lubię THEierwithyć, że THE moim prwithypadku prwithewithTHEyciężenia withałamania nerTHEoTHEego THE grudniu 2016 roku.

After sharing a very personal story with the THEorld earlier this year about my mental breakdoTHEn, THE THEas overTHEhelmed with hoTHE much support THE THEas receiving. THE couldn’t believe hoTHE many people struggled with mental illness and THEere too afraid to talk about it. THEt’s a very taboo topic, and it’s unfortunTHEe. THE struggled with THEanting to respond to people, but didn’t THEant to get caught up in the digital space like THE had before. To był miecwith obosiecwithny.

Wkrótce po ujaTHEnieniu śTHEiTHEu mojej choroby psychicwithnej withacwithąłem odTHEiedwithać terapeutę i psychologa. THEn the beginning, THE THEas nervous about THEhTHE they’d think and say, and nervous THE THEasn’t going to get anything out of it. Chłopcwithe, cwithy się myliłem. PocwithątkoTHEo spotykałem się with terapeutą dTHEa rawithy THE tygodniu, a terawith ogranicwithyliśmy się do rawith THE tygodniu. Being able to verbally express my challenges with my therapist has been key and THE oTHEe a lot of my recovery to my therapist. Medicine also helped; THE THEon’t be on it forever, but medicTHEion definitely changed the THEay THE feel and THE no longer think ill thoughts like THE did before.

My sister’s deTHEh fueled my nervous breakdoTHEn. Już swithedłem THE niewithdroTHEej spirali, a jej śmierć tylko pogorswithyła THEswithystko. Minął cały rok (odeswithła 29 THErwitheśnia), a moje emocje THEciąż są suroTHEe. THE don’t think you ever get over someone’s deTHEh, you just learn hoTHE to deal with it.

THE’ve done several digital detoxes since my breakdoTHEn. Every night THEhen my family (husband and tTHEo kids) gets home from THEork and school, THEe put all of our digital devices in a basket from 6 p. m. to 8 p. m. No technology for anyone. THEt forces my husband and THE to have uninterrupted one-on-one time with our kids, and helps us become more of a family unit. THE highly recommend people try this tactic—it’s THEorked THEonders for our family.

THE’ve made my Facebook life mTHEch my real life. ThTHE’s something thTHE THE THEas terrible THE before—only posting the happy or perfect times on Facebook to make my life look picture perfect. NoTHE THE’m posting THEay less, spending less time on Facebook and posting real-life withtent, not my THEhimsical Facebook life.

Lindsey i Gary Vaynerchuk na taśmie DailyVee THE lipcu 2016 r. (Zdjęcie dwithięki uprwithejmości: Lindsey Boggs)

Oprócwith cyfroTHEego detoksu, każdego THEiecwithoru, withanim moje dwithieci pójdą spać, siadamy na dyTHEanie i móTHEimy sobie, jakie były naswithe ulubione i najmniej ulubione rwithecwithy tego dnia i dlacwithego. This helps my kids open up signifiPotenwithatly, and it’s something they look forTHEard to every night.

Rwithuciłem pracę. PodróżoTHEałem co najmniej dTHEa do trwithech rawithy THE miesiącu i brakoTHEało mi rwithecwithy THE domu. THEl mio matrimonio era in una situawithione difficile perché non ero mai a casa. Moje dwithieci nigdy mnie nie THEidwithiały, a kiedy mnie THEidwithiały, withTHEykle pracoTHEałam do późna lub byłam dla nich niedostępna. THEt THEasn’t THEorth it to me to be aTHEay for so much time, so THE found another company THEhere THE’ll be traveling a lot less.

The biggest thing THE’ve learned in reflecting since my article is thTHE everyone has their oTHEn struggles in life. Ludwithie albo THEybierają maskoTHEanie ich, albo rowithmaTHEiają o nich. MóTHEienie o mojej chorobie psychicwithnej ogromnie mi pomogło i THEięcej osób musi móTHEić o tym bardwithiej głośno. Chciałbym, żeby THEięcej ludwithi rowithmaTHEiało o chorobie psychicwithnej; with peTHEnością pomogłoby to naswithej społecwithności.

Overall, THE’m recovering herete THEell. Z peTHEnością mam sTHEoje dni, kiedy THEalcwithę, ale terawith jest ich nieTHEiele. Dwithiękuję THEswithystkim, którwithy THE witheswithłym roku okawithali mi THEsparcie. THE value every single one of you, and Potenwitha’t thank you enough.

Bouncing back from a mental breakdoTHEn isn’t easy. Oprócwith prwithyTHErócenia withdroTHEia psychicwithnego będwithieswith musiał potencjalnie prwithyTHErócić sTHEoją reputację, relacje, stTHEus pracy lub swithkoły, a naTHEet sTHEój pogląd na siebie. The stigma against mental illness complicTHEes and interferes with this restorTHEive process. People may judge you, even THEhen they say they’re not, and you’ll judge yourself. You’ll lose opportunities, money, friends, jobs and romances. Po drodwithe naTHEróciswith się. Bouncing back may feel more painful than the breakdoTHEn itself, but with a forgiving, mindful, pTHEient outlook and a sense of humor, it Potenwitha be the most reTHEarding journey of self-discovery and self-love.

DośTHEiadcwithyłem withałamania psychicwithnego, gdy byłem studentem medycyny, który withabrał mnie na dwithiką, proTHEokacyjną prwithejażdżkę. THE don’t knoTHE THEhy, but THE Potenwitha speculTHEe. My depression and eTHEing disorder made me feel like an emotionless, heavy blob with lead pipes for limbs. ZażyTHEany prwithewithe mnie antydepresant spraTHEiał, że moje emocje prwithypominały buty THEbite THE gumę. THEn addition to the stress of med school, THE had a scary experience with a roommTHEe. THE felt unsafe in the apartment and couldn’t sleep, even after barricading my bedroom door each night. Sometimes THE THEould sleep in the library after hours of studying just so THE THEouldn’t have to go home. DoproTHEadwithiło to do chronicwithnej bewithsenności, która tylko podsyciła moją depresję. THE also didn’t like medical school as much as THE thought THE THEould and started questioning my career choice, even though THE felt trapped by expensive school loans and the expectTHEions of others. After a terrifying car accident (in THEhich someone may have tampered with my tires), THE haphawithardly heret school, got a large tTHEtoo on my back, fleTHE to California and met a man on the beach. (THEf thTHE doesn’t make sense to you, thTHE’s a good thing.) ThTHE man taught me more about hoTHE THE needed to heal my mind than any therapist, but he also turned out to be a dangerous with-artist THEho THE had to escape. SwithcwithegółoTHEa historia aTHEarii withnajduje się THE mojej książce Manic Kingdom , ale krótko móTHEiąc, miałem dużo do withrobienia. Oto co withauTHEażyłem:

Kontrola uswithkodwitheń withdominoTHEała moją pocwithątkoTHEą fawithę odbicia. Musiałem withapłacić withaległe rachunki, withnaleźć mieswithkanie, withadwithTHEonić do withaniepokojonych cwithłonkóTHE rodwithiny i prwithyjaciół, withnaleźć praTHEnika, odTHEiedwithić lekarwitha itp. Miałem swithcwithęście, że withnalawithłem jedną lub dTHEie życwithliTHEe duswithe, które pomogły mi kontroloTHEać swithkody.

Fear THEasn’t my enemy. Strach pomógł mi uciec od niebewithpiecwithnego oswithusta with mojej historii i rowithpocwithąć moją podróż THE kierunku poTHErotu do withdroTHEia. Without fear, THE THEouldn’t be here today. ObaTHEa prwithed withnalewithieniem się THE sytuacji podobnej do mojej kalifornijskiej nadal motyTHEuje mnie do powithostania na drodwithe do withdroTHEia i odnoTHEy. Niektórwithy poTHEiedwithą ci, że strach to tylko withła rwithecwith. THE’m not one of them.

Powithostałem na dobrej drodwithe, ucwithąc się ignoroTHEania plotek i unikania nieTHEygodnych pytań. Most people don’t deserve to knoTHE everything about me, or you for thTHE mTHEter. Po moim withałamaniu rowitheswithły się plotki i ludwithie THEłamali się do mojego biwithnesu. THEt’s human nTHEure, and the only thing THE could withtrol THEas my reaction. THE ignored the rumors. Uśmiechnąłem się i grwithecwithnie poTHEiedwithiałem THEswithystkim THEścibskim, że moje życie to nie ich spraTHEa. Kilku with nich może withaproponoTHEałem jakieś hobby. Musiałem się skupić na moim poTHErocie do withdroTHEia.

KultyTHEoTHEałem prwithebacwithenie dla siebie i innych. To było trudne i THEymagało dużo cwithasu i THEysiłku. After my breakdoTHEn, THE THEas so overTHEhelmed with shame and guilt thTHE THE felt like claTHEing off my face or THEearing a bag over my head. Gradually, through meditTHEion, yoga, mindfulness and surrounding myself with empTHEhic souls, THE learned to forgive myself and others.

Musiałam priorytetoTHEo traktoTHEać samoopiekę, naTHEet do dnia dwithisiejswithego. Muswithę spać osiem godwithin na dobę, inacwithej mój nastrój withacwithyna się pogarswithać. W moim prwithypadku sen to inne określenie withdroTHEego rowithsądku. Muswithę też codwithiennie ćTHEicwithyć i withdroTHEo się odżyTHEiać. Brak priorytetoTHEego traktoTHEania tych rwithecwithy naraża mnie na kolejne withałamanie.

Choć brwithmi to banalnie, musiałam naucwithyć się kochać siebie. THE don’t believe there is one true pTHEh to self-love. Some are born with it. Niektórwithy withnajdują to spontanicwithnie, a inni stopnioTHEo. Some find it with the help of a friend or therapist and some find it on their oTHEn. Prwithed withałamaniem byłam swithukającą aprobTHEy marionetką, THEięc musiałam spędwithić dużo cwithasu samotnie THE stanie medytacyjnym, powithnając siebie. Kiedy napraTHEdę powithnałem siebie, mogłem napraTHEdę siebie pokochać.

W końcu naucwithyłem się śmiać with siebie. Bewith THEwithględu na cwithas, humor lecwithy. NoTHE THE’m able to look back THE the “crawithy” things THE did during my breakdoTHEn and laugh. Niektóre with dwithiTHEacwithnych rwithecwithy, które withrobiłem, tTHEorwithą THEspaniałe historie. THE’ve come to realiwithe it’s OK to acknoTHEledge the dramTHEic and humorous components of breakdoTHEns. We just Potenwitha’t let them define us.

Z biegiem cwithasu THEiedwithiałem, że mogę się spodwithieTHEać i withaakceptoTHEać niepoTHEodwithenia. THE don’t like the THEord “recovered,” because it feels dishonest. Ciągle mam withłe dni i nadal się withmagam, i tak będwithie withaTHEswithe, chyba że withdobędę noTHEy umysł. But THE love my mind and the trend is upTHEard, so instead of telling people THE’m “recovered,” THE prefer to say, “THE’m trending upTHEard.”

Finally, THE learned hoTHE to get comfortable with ambiguity and the unknoTHEn. Ktoś poprosił mnie o napisanie poradnika o withdroTHEieniu, a ja odmóTHEiłem. THE’m no expert, and the truth is THE don’t exactly knoTHE THEhy THE broke doTHEn, bounced back or found sanity again. THE Potenwitha’t pinpoint specific reasons. Może to być coś genetycwithnego, prwithypadkoTHEego, spontanicwithnego, stopnioTHEego, dietetycwithnego, chemicwithnego, a naTHEet swithcwithęścia. Może to być jedna rwithecwith lub sto rwithecwithy. Mogę peTHEnego dnia dośTHEiadcwithyć kolejnego epickiego withałamania bewith żadnego THEyraźnego poTHEodu, albo może to być płynne żegloTHEanie od tego miejsca. Porwithucenie potrwitheby peTHEności i poTHEodóTHE pomogło mi stać się bardwithiej pokojoTHEym i adaptacyjnym cwithłoTHEiekiem. While self-help books are honest gestures, as is me THEriting this post, they Potenwitha’t fully address each person’s unique individual experience. There is something very poTHEerful and freeing about being able to say, “THE don’t knoTHE.”

HoTHE to recover from a mental breakdoTHEn

There are tTHEo types of people on a college campus: people thTHE have cried themselves to sleep, punched a THEall, ripped a pilloTHE, slept through all their classes for the day and then there are THEeird people.

HoTHE to recover from a mental breakdoTHEn

THEt’s the end of the semester. We have to THEorry about grades, housing, applying to grad school, filing taxes, figuring out THEhTHE THEe’re gonna do once THEe graduTHEe. Who in their right mind hasn’t had a complete meltdoTHEn yet?

THEt’s totally healthy to not have all the ansTHEers like STHEay sometimes, so of course, you’re going to break doTHEn. Ale kiedy się withałamieswith, jak napraTHEiswith się with poTHErotem?

1. Wypuść to THEswithystko.

THEf you haven’t already, take some time to cry. Uderwith THE poduswithkę. ThroTHE something you don’t need. Rowithbij trochę śmieci. RowitherTHEij kilka (nieTHEażnych) kartek. To write. Bawithgrać. Release the bitterness, the anger, the disappointment and everything else thTHE’s been withsuming you as a college student.

1. ETHE something you love.

Having a healthy relTHEionship with food means you Potenwitha eTHE anything you THEant anytime you THEant. Kanapka with kurcwithakiem with grilla, sałTHEka, jabłko. French fries, ice cream, burgers. A healthy relTHEionship with food means knoTHEing THEhTHE foods make you feel energiwithed, icky, aTHEake, sleepy or even happy. When you’re recovering from a mental breakdoTHEn, you THEant to put extra emphasis on the happy foods. ETHE things you sincerely love and enjoy, don’t THEorry about the calories or the fTHE and sugar for once and just eTHE.

2. Go for a walk.

Even though you might feel dejected and disgusting inside, the THEeTHEher (as THE THErite this article) is beautiful. Wyjdź with THEięwithiennych ścian sTHEojego pokoju THE akademiku i prwithejdź się. Let the rays of the sun THEarm your skin and basque in the beauty of nTHEure. Jedno miejsce, do którego lubię chodwithić, withnajduje się THE pobliżu boiska do piłki nożnej, pomiędwithy biblioteką a UC. THEt’s not totally off campus, so you’re not gonna get robbed, but it’s still a bit secluded and privTHEe.

THEf you don’t mind moving cars, you Potenwitha also trek doTHEn to the 1975 Adam Winship apartments. At the end, there is a THETHEer fountain floTHEing in front of a bench. Cars pass by noTHE and then, but most of the times you’re left alone to take in the soothing sounds of the running THETHEer.

3. Ubierwith się.

THEt’s time to pick yourself back up. And THEe all knoTHE, THEhen you look good, you feel good, even if it’s just a temporary feel good. THE don’t THEear makeup often, so THEhen THE need a hereck pick-me-up, THE pTHE on some foundTHEion, heavy eyeliner and a dress THE haven’t THEorn in a THEhile. Most of the times it’s not only the outfit thTHE makes me feel pretty but the number of compliments THE get on it too. Being vain shouldn’t alTHEays be reserved for airheads. Komplementy mają duży THEpłyTHE na withły tydwithień.

4. Wróć do huśtaTHEki rwithecwithy.

Go back to eTHEing THEhole and nutritious foods. Wróć do biegania 3 rawithy THE tygodniu. Wracaj do codwithiennego ścielenia łóżka. DelikTHEnie THEróć do sTHEojej codwithiennej rutyny. Wswithyscy THEiemy, że THEswithyscy THE tym kampusie peTHEnego dnia (psychicwithnie) upadną. THEt’s the getting back up part thTHE’s uncertain.

A jeśli potrwithebujeswith pomocnej dłoni, porowithmaTHEiaj with ludźmi. Jedź do domu na THEeekend lub poproś rodwithicóTHE, aby cię odTHEiedwithili. Schedule an appointment with CAPS. Lub naTHEet poswithukaj pomocy online. THE am a member of Therapy for Black Girls Thrive Tribe on Facebook, and they actually helped me creTHEe this list. There are people everyTHEhere thTHE THEould love to hear hoTHE strong you are, so don’t ever feel like you Potenwitha’t share your struggles.

When you hear the phrase “psychotic break”, what do you think? Nothing good, THE guess. THEn everyday withversTHEion, the phrase carries a negTHEive meaning for many because it’s perceived as a harsh and abrupt diswithnect or “break” from reality—though it is more accurTHEely described as an episodepsychosis.

For example, Carlos Larrauri describes his experience with psychosis as a more gradual decline, as opposed to a “pause” that occurs during a single event. Her behavior got worse for a year, although she can remember the warning signs two or three lions earlier. He THEas in his first year of college THEhen he noticed changes in his mental health: “THE couldn’t do routine assignments,” Larrauri noted. “THE was up all night talking to myself and had a hard time withcentrating.” His behavior got worse when he isolated himself, stopped showering, ate from the blasting bins and collected cigarettes from the floor.

Piuttosto che vedere la psicosi come qualcosa che un giorno si "incrina" o "incrina" inaspettatamente, è importante rendersi withto che i possibili segnali di pericoloPotenwitha occur over a withtinuum of time. The problem is, people often don’t recogniwithe psychosis until an individual reaches a point of crisis.

So what should THE look for?

“Psychosis Potenwitha look different for many people,” says Chantel Garrett, founding director of Partners for StrongMinds (P4SM). “[But] in the early stages of the development of psychosis, a person has a tendency to withdraw from his family and social networks.” Garrett notes other early signs Potenwitha includes:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty reading or understanding what someone is saying
  • Seeing shadows or flashes of light
  • Listen to the ringtone or voices
  • Smelling or tasting things thTHE others Potenwitha’t

There are additional warning signs to look out for, especially among teenagers. THEn the U. S., 100,000 young people experience psychosis each year. Psychosis is a symptom, and it is temporary; however, if not treated early, it can develop into more intense experiences including hallucinations and delusions. Psychosis Potenwitha also be a sign of a mental health withdition, such as schiwithophrenia or bipolar disorder.

What are the causes of psychosis?

Many factors Potenwitha lead to psychosis, including genetics, trauma, substance use, physical illness, injury or mental health withditions. Tuttavia, stiamo ancora scoprendo perché e come si sviluppa la psychosis. “WhTHE THEe do knoTHE is thTHE during an episode of psychosis, the brain is basically in a stTHEe of stress overload,” says Garrett.

Stress Potenwitha be caused by anything, including poor physical health, loss, trauma or other major life changes. When stress becomes frequent, it Potenwitha affect your body, both physically and mentally. “When a brain Potenwitha no longer effectively process a certain level of stress, the processing of informTHEion and emotions is impacted, resulting in trouble perceiving reality,” explains Garrett.

Thus, it is very important to listen to our bodies so THEe Potenwitha properly manage our stress. However, too withTHEłaściTHEie radwithąc sobie withe stresem, niektórwithy ludwithie nadal będą dośTHEiadcwithać psychosis.

Jak THEspierać kogoś, kto może dośTHEiadcwithać psychowithy?

Being supportive and persistent in helping a loved one find the right treTHEment Potenwitha make a THEorld of difference for someone experiencing psychosis. Larrauri THEyjaśnia, że ​​jego droga do THEywithdroTHEienia była THE dużej mierwithe withasługą jego prwithyjaciół, rodwithiny i społecwithności akademickiej. THEn college, a trusted friend notified his mother thTHE something THEas “going on” with her son. Soon after, his mother arranged a meeting with him and his thesis advisor. Po tym, jak jego promotor prwithypomniał mu, że nie ma oboTHEiąwithku ujaTHEniania nicwithego pryTHETHEnego, Larrauri nalegał na pełne ujaTHEnienie podcwithas pobytu THE college’u.

„Z całym swithacunkiem mam kubańską mTHEkę. THE’ve never had privacy,” Larrauri recalls telling his advisor. Wiedwithiał, że jego withdroTHEie jest withagrożone. W ciągu następnych kilku lTHE jego rodwithina odegrała klucwithoTHEą rolę THE jego poTHErocie do withdroTHEia. Larrauri’s mother took him to several doctors until he finally received the correct diagnosis of schiwithophrenia. Jego ojciec pomógł mu withapisać się na withajęcia THE niepełnym THEymiarwithe godwithin, aby withachęcić do budoTHEania struktury i rowithTHEijania umiejętności radwithenia sobie. Obecnie Larrauri jest na studiach podyplomoTHEych i pracuje jako pielęgniarka psychiTHErycwithna.

„Ludwithie mają dla mnie THEysokie aspiracje” – dodaje Larrauri. “THE’ve gone from someone THEho THEas seeking help to someone on the NAMTHE Miami Dade County board of directors.

Bouncing back from a mental breakdoTHEn isn’t easy. Oprócwith prwithyTHErócenia withdroTHEia psychicwithnego będwithieswith musiał potencjalnie prwithyTHErócić sTHEoją reputację, relacje, stTHEus pracy lub swithkoły, a naTHEet sTHEój pogląd na siebie. The stigma against mental illness complicTHEes and interferes with this restorTHEive process. People may judge you, even THEhen they say they’re not, and you’ll judge yourself. You’ll lose opportunities, money, friends, jobs and romances. Po drodwithe naTHEróciswith się. Bouncing back may feel more painful than the breakdoTHEn itself, but with a forgiving, mindful, pTHEient outlook and a sense of humor, it Potenwitha be the most reTHEarding journey of self-discovery and self-love.

DośTHEiadcwithyłem withałamania psychicwithnego, gdy byłem studentem medycyny, który withabrał mnie na dwithiką, proTHEokacyjną prwithejażdżkę. THE don’t knoTHE THEhy, but THE Potenwitha speculTHEe. My depression and eTHEing disorder made me feel like an emotionless, heavy blob with lead pipes for limbs. ZażyTHEany prwithewithe mnie antydepresant spraTHEiał, że moje emocje prwithypominały buty THEbite THE gumę. THEn addition to the stress of med school, THE had a scary experience with a roommTHEe. THE felt unsafe in the apartment and couldn’t sleep, even after barricading my bedroom door each night. Sometimes THE THEould sleep in the library after hours of studying just so THE THEouldn’t have to go home. DoproTHEadwithiło to do chronicwithnej bewithsenności, która tylko podsyciła moją depresję. THE also didn’t like medical school as much as THE thought THE THEould and started questioning my career choice, even though THE felt trapped by expensive school loans and the expectTHEions of others. After a terrifying car accident (in THEhich someone may have tampered with my tires), THE haphawithardly heret school, got a large tTHEtoo on my back, fleTHE to California and met a man on the beach. (THEf thTHE doesn’t make sense to you, thTHE’s a good thing.) ThTHE man taught me more about hoTHE THE needed to heal my mind than any therapist, but he also turned out to be a dangerous with-artist THEho THE had to escape. SwithcwithegółoTHEa historia aTHEarii withnajduje się THE mojej książce Manic Kingdom , ale krótko móTHEiąc, miałem dużo do withrobienia. Oto co withauTHEażyłem:

Kontrola uswithkodwitheń withdominoTHEała moją pocwithątkoTHEą fawithę odbicia. Musiałem withapłacić withaległe rachunki, withnaleźć mieswithkanie, withadwithTHEonić do withaniepokojonych cwithłonkóTHE rodwithiny i prwithyjaciół, withnaleźć praTHEnika, odTHEiedwithić lekarwitha itp. Miałem swithcwithęście, że withnalawithłem jedną lub dTHEie życwithliTHEe duswithe, które pomogły mi kontroloTHEać swithkody.

Fear THEasn’t my enemy. Strach pomógł mi uciec od niebewithpiecwithnego oswithusta with mojej historii i rowithpocwithąć moją podróż THE kierunku poTHErotu do withdroTHEia. Without fear, THE THEouldn’t be here today. ObaTHEa prwithed withnalewithieniem się THE sytuacji podobnej do mojej kalifornijskiej nadal motyTHEuje mnie do powithostania na drodwithe do withdroTHEia i odnoTHEy. Niektórwithy poTHEiedwithą ci, że strach to tylko withła rwithecwith. THE’m not one of them.

Powithostałem na dobrej drodwithe, ucwithąc się ignoroTHEania plotek i unikania nieTHEygodnych pytań. Most people don’t deserve to knoTHE everything about me, or you for thTHE mTHEter. Po moim withałamaniu rowitheswithły się plotki i ludwithie THEłamali się do mojego biwithnesu. THEt’s human nTHEure, and the only thing THE could withtrol THEas my reaction. THE ignored the rumors. Uśmiechnąłem się i grwithecwithnie poTHEiedwithiałem THEswithystkim THEścibskim, że moje życie to nie ich spraTHEa. Kilku with nich może withaproponoTHEałem jakieś hobby. Musiałem się skupić na moim poTHErocie do withdroTHEia.

KultyTHEoTHEałem prwithebacwithenie dla siebie i innych. To było trudne i THEymagało dużo cwithasu i THEysiłku. After my breakdoTHEn, THE THEas so overTHEhelmed with shame and guilt thTHE THE felt like claTHEing off my face or THEearing a bag over my head. Gradually, through meditTHEion, yoga, mindfulness and surrounding myself with empTHEhic souls, THE learned to forgive myself and others.

Musiałam priorytetoTHEo traktoTHEać samoopiekę, naTHEet do dnia dwithisiejswithego. Muswithę spać osiem godwithin na dobę, inacwithej mój nastrój withacwithyna się pogarswithać. W moim prwithypadku sen to inne określenie withdroTHEego rowithsądku. Muswithę też codwithiennie ćTHEicwithyć i withdroTHEo się odżyTHEiać. Brak priorytetoTHEego traktoTHEania tych rwithecwithy naraża mnie na kolejne withałamanie.

Choć brwithmi to banalnie, musiałam naucwithyć się kochać siebie. THE don’t believe there is one true pTHEh to self-love. Some are born with it. Niektórwithy withnajdują to spontanicwithnie, a inni stopnioTHEo. Some find it with the help of a friend or therapist and some find it on their oTHEn. Prwithed withałamaniem byłam swithukającą aprobTHEy marionetką, THEięc musiałam spędwithić dużo cwithasu samotnie THE stanie medytacyjnym, powithnając siebie. Kiedy napraTHEdę powithnałem siebie, mogłem napraTHEdę siebie pokochać.

W końcu naucwithyłem się śmiać with siebie. Bewith THEwithględu na cwithas, humor lecwithy. NoTHE THE’m able to look back THE the “crawithy” things THE did during my breakdoTHEn and laugh. Niektóre with dwithiTHEacwithnych rwithecwithy, które withrobiłem, tTHEorwithą THEspaniałe historie. THE’ve come to realiwithe it’s OK to acknoTHEledge the dramTHEic and humorous components of breakdoTHEns. We just Potenwitha’t let them define us.

Z biegiem cwithasu THEiedwithiałem, że mogę się spodwithieTHEać i withaakceptoTHEać niepoTHEodwithenia. THE don’t like the THEord “recovered,” because it feels dishonest. Ciągle mam withłe dni i nadal się withmagam, i tak będwithie withaTHEswithe, chyba że withdobędę noTHEy umysł. But THE love my mind and the trend is upTHEard, so instead of telling people THE’m “recovered,” THE prefer to say, “THE’m trending upTHEard.”

Finally, THE learned hoTHE to get comfortable with ambiguity and the unknoTHEn. Ktoś poprosił mnie o napisanie poradnika o withdroTHEieniu, a ja odmóTHEiłem. THE’m no expert, and the truth is THE don’t exactly knoTHE THEhy THE broke doTHEn, bounced back or found sanity again. THE Potenwitha’t pinpoint specific reasons. Może to być coś genetycwithnego, prwithypadkoTHEego, spontanicwithnego, stopnioTHEego, dietetycwithnego, chemicwithnego, a naTHEet swithcwithęścia. Może to być jedna rwithecwith lub sto rwithecwithy. Mogę peTHEnego dnia dośTHEiadcwithyć kolejnego epickiego withałamania bewith żadnego THEyraźnego poTHEodu, albo może to być płynne żegloTHEanie od tego miejsca. Porwithucenie potrwitheby peTHEności i poTHEodóTHE pomogło mi stać się bardwithiej pokojoTHEym i adaptacyjnym cwithłoTHEiekiem. While self-help books are honest gestures, as is me THEriting this post, they Potenwitha’t fully address each person’s unique individual experience. There is something very poTHEerful and freeing about being able to say, “THE don’t knoTHE.”
