    Yeah, and this quote you selected also has a creative and teleological element that I like -- what can I do with this moment? or what am I supposed to do with this moment?
    Meds free since June 2005.

    "An initiation into shamanic healing means a devaluation of all values, an overturning of the profane world, a peeling away of inveterate handed-down notions of the world, liberation from everything preconceived. For that reason, shamanism is closely connected with suffering. One must suffer the disintegration of one's own system of thought in order to perceive a new world in the higher space."

    I know that cbt etc is not going to take the w/d symptoms away, but I so often worry that my own fears add to them...although to be honest its 1.30am here so I feel almost FINE making me realise its not me...

    But anyway, I have the claire weekes book, I dont really like it, mainly bevause she talks so often about ECT and Benzos, but also because she talks about curing the anxiety with her methods, when I read the book Im always thinking, well thats all fine if your not in w/d LOL.

    Anyway I was thinking about buying the Feeling Good book by David Burns, has anyone read it? what other books would you recommend?
