DBT Skills Group

Why is my brain trying to sabotage me?

Why am I struggling so freaking much in this DBT Skills Group? I talked my doc into a referral spot in the class a few months ago and ever since I’ve been making an excuse not to go ever since. Is it me, my stage fright, my anxiety, the class, take facilitators, the other group, the work,… I don’t know, but my brain shuts off as soon as I get there and I just can’t concentrate nor function.

It’s like my brain literally goes limp whenever I open the binder of worksheets and homework pages. Instantly like my brain turns to scramble eggs. 🍳 Everything I read gets hard to comprehend as if I’m in the 2nd grade.
