I woke up feeling a bit off kilter. People with BPD are very structured, and often don't like changes or shakeups in their plans (which makes sense that I'm an INFJ). So, when my FP showed after I told myself I wouldn't contact him for a month, it threw me off. However, I was able to use mindfulness and redirect my thoughts. I was feeling a little bit anxious about not hearing back from the woman about my second interview. I was really hoping to do it by the end of the week.
- Made a follow up appointment with the neurologist.
- Took care of bills.
- Got an email from the woman from the interview. She told me 2 of the 3 teachers that were supposed to do the phone interview had been sick, but she was positive we'd be able to set something up for Tuesday.
Mindfulness/Other DBT Skills
I was pretty proud of myself for continuing to use my skills. I observed that I am able to use skills quickly when I am independent. Again the challenge is going to be intertwining certain people in my life or handling it when something unexpected happens. Also proud that I was able to handle the students today without the teacher there.
