What–Me Worry?

We have had a couple of requests for direct, psychological advice. While I appreciate the vote of confidence, I am not able to do that. I am a licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania and not permitted to practice out-of-state borders. We have no good idea where inquiries are coming from.

There are also matters of insurance and liability. It could get really messy. The musings I do here are related to my own life and how things are going with me. I am not planning on suing myself for malpractice!  Although I don’t believe most of you would, some of you might. Something about one bad apple.

I include dialectic behavioral therapy information as educational material only. This information is widely available in classes, texts and on the web. I think it is excellent material or I would not teach it and use it to handle my own messes.

That said, it does not mean that something someone said has not sparked an idea for a post. Remember, it is a lesson or a personal musing and NOT direct advice. This is not an advice column. It is a journal with a friendly lesson here and there. If you find something that relates and helps, I am glad but I am not liable if the ideas are not helpful to you.

But even the Devil can quote scripture !

On worry:

Luke, 12:27-28  Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not, and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, o ye of little faith?

Or how about…

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.
Leo Buscaglia

Drag your thoughts away from your troubles…by the ears, by the heels or anyway you can manage it.
Mark Twain

I’ve developed a new philosophy…I only dread one day at a time.
Charles Shultz

These quotes are all related to a core DBT concept called mindfulness. I probably should have hit on mindfulness much sooner because it is essential to surviving crisis, especially the long-term variety like AMD. It is not a skill I am great at but I try to practice it frequently. I will do mindfulness next.
