Default Emotional Freedom tecnique

i still see quite a few docs after my head injury from my accident now recently they tried me on the Emotional Freedom technique
what a load of old crock
i dont care if paul McKenna uses it, and i would care even less if Paul McCartney used it, after 6 sessions of feeling like a complete Mong i can safely say its codswallop

I have a head injury - I aint Bonkers

so there i said it no wonder people in therapy get madder (excluding me of course )

They tried that on me cos of my head injury - its a load of old bollox, but then so's the rest of it! They've decided now that my headaches are in my imagination and I'm just worrying too much about it, and that what I forget is normal even though my mates have said they can tell the difference between how I was before and how I am now.

They tried me on various drugs, some of them did nothing, others made me sleep, and others made me hallucinate! None of them stopped the headaches tho! I feel like a labrat!

The best thing they put me on we Epilum designed for epilepsy but as i was under a private doctor they had more scope to experiment it was about 5 times the dose they have for epilepsy but in the early stages was brilliant, but they had to keep increasing the dose every two or three weeks, but becasue i am on sulphasalazine as well, my liver couldnt handle the epilum. but it worked wonders

I traveled the country seeing specialist and all sorts of psychiatrists etc.... but the one thing that actually helped
4 years of cognitive behavioural Therapy at lemington rehab hospital
dont know how it helped all i know is that it did.

Interesting cos i've been referred for it for the wrong reason because the quack wasn't listening to me. Because it was for the wrong reasons I was going to tell my GP to cancel the referral but if you think it helps maybe its worth a bash.

The proof the psych bloke wasnt listening to me - he has written various basic things about me which are incorrect in his report back to my GP - even stuff like saying I'm doing an MBA when I'm doing an MA Business.... OK its not serious stuff, but at the end of the day he wasn't listening and how does that make his report accurate? There are all sorts of things in it like that.

Usually for manic depression to control the vast change in mood, it is meant to level out the emotions so that you don't go from extreme mania to extreme depression and vice versa.

its worth a go, but if you take other drugs that can affect you liver (ie the type you need regular bloodtests for then its worth keeping an eye on the tests)
but I felt almost 'Normal' on the epilum, but the doses do need to be high (and i had no adverse side affects either) definatly worth a go

the psych blokes/blokesses never get it right they just want to put how they think you are affected not actually how you are affected

Thats exactly how I felt when i read the report.

I'm currently not on any drugs other than some antihistamines for my eczema which have a knock on effect that they help me sleep which in turn does help with the headaches, but I only take them now and again not every day. I hate taking drugs, and I always forget anyway - i am sure some days when I was on them every day I took way more than i should cos i could never remember whether i'd taken them or not!!!

I'll leave the referal on for the CBT and see what happens. The problem I had was that the way the psych bloke worded the report meant that if i said he had misunderstood me etc it meant i was overreacting and this was part of my problem... w*nker!

CBT is amazing, there are no overnight results though and it does feel hopless at times, but a few years down the line you can see amazing differences (well it did for me)

We shall see!

Since I've been seeing Andy I sleep so much better when he's with me and my headaches have actually improved, but i still have a brain like a seive and still forget words and things i'm supposed to be doing etc (like the blokes coming to fix my window last night which i only sorted out with them on Monday and totally forgot about, even when i saw the van it took me 2 hours to remember arranging it!!!)

I only did it for a few months,but it had quite an effect when combined with fluoxetine (Prozac).My fear is that I'm taken off the meds too soon cos I know that I'd go postal in the office. Takes me all my willpower not to lose it at the fuckwits at the mo.........

Ick Prozac - I didnt last long on that cos it stopped me feeling EVERYTHING I just felt totally numb all the time and couldn't feel happy even when normally i would. It also meant that I could quite easily think about killing myself and not feel any problem with it.

I'm lucky,it's taken away the dark,dark moods (mostly) and the terrible burning rage which I felt constantly.Now,although I detest my job I can tolerate it and get thro' the day without sitting on edge with my head in my hands.I'm still a crabbit bugger,but that's my default setting!
Without the tabs I'd just want to sit in a dark corner and sob my worthless life away.
But I still get spooked by folk appearing behing me suddenly,and sudden loud noises.That'll take a long time to heal (if ever) methinks.

In my case it involved tapping places on my face and neck and arms with my fingers and repeating some sort of bollox like "go away headache you're not welcome"

EFT Yea-what is that??
interested thats all

I am in awe of all you getting along with getting on. Life is hard enough, but with the added pest of mental illness it must make it twice as hard

You need Bikes/Trikes as an outlet

Oh hang on
Seriusly though-imagine what you would be like if you didn't have that
be lots more road rage around methinks

My brother, new to proper motorcycling again says his stress & blood pressure is so much lower now he doesn't have to sit in queues of traffic getting to & from work everyday.

Besides Yoda, look at your life now-brilliant steps forward in the few years-your great website, your photos & write ups, all really good.

Not good for your guts... might be worth asking your doc if they can give you something to line your stomach to make it easier on you? They've given it me before to use with antibiotics that make me hurl.

I was on diclofenac for about 2 or 3 years after I dislocated my elbow and it did work, but it made my guts so painful i decided to give it up as a bad thing. Elbow mostly fine now but cold damp weather still gets it (I think I'm getting old!)

That's why I've got 800mg ibuprofen and codydramol as painkillers.

ibuprofen also not good for your guts and codydramol has codeine and therefore makes you constipated!

If I were your guts I'd hate you!!!!
