Diagnosis and Treatment Plan

"rollercoaster of emotions this last week -- monday i was really sad & crying a lot, lots of grief missing my aunt. tuesday was better. wednesday was a lot of anger, rough morning w/ my husband. went & worked out in AM and then she was locked out of the house, didn't have time to shower. thursday still angry but a little better. friday took a day off to spend time with kids, felt a little overstimulated."

how was the grief? "hard, uncomfortable, so big that it hurts so much. i don't get why i can't move on"

feels a lot of numbness

what do you miss most about your relationship w/ your aunt? "more of our talks -- her positivity, the way she perceived things. she could make me change my perspective and see things in a different way, it would bring me a lot of relief. she would help me figure out what my next steps were. but now i don't know what those next steps are. i have trouble staying focused in the moment, in the present."

feels forgetful, is losing things

stephanie & husband have infidelity, betrayal hx. she feels like she's put up a wall for so long

emotions in the body

  • stress: stomach -- bad feeling of tightness & tension >> lack of appetite, neck & shoulders, bracing sensation, tension headaches
  • anger: chest, wanting to punch something, yelling, throwing things, shutting down, passive aggressive ignoring. jaw clenching. sees her children acting out anger in the same ways
  • sadness: starts in throat (lump), maybe chest heaviness or emptiness
  • fear: stomach, sometimes heart racing, shallow breathing/holding breath. chest & heart for more subtle feelings of fear.
  • guilt//blame/shame: chest, throat lump. feels like it goes hand-in-hand with sadness.
    • how have you released the shame of AUD after becoming sober? "telling other people and hearing they did the same things, that made me feel less bad. i'm not a bad person, i was sick"
      • "it feels like a puzzle that isn't put together properly"
    • "i feel a lot of shame about having bipolar"

feels alone a LOT
