Checking into relapse

Build a new relationship with uncertainty throughout your life or your daily practices will just logically and rationally have you struggling and suffering and relapsing back into a depressive anxiety hole. This video explains an approach that I credit with helping me recover and maintaining great mental health for the past eight years:

  • Hey Mark,
    I’ve been having a hard time with anxiety throughout the past year and I’d like to start doing something about it. I just bought your book but I’d like to find a therapist or a group in Toronto to learn some CBT strategies. Do you have any advice as to how to find someone good to work with? Thanks!

    • Thanks for reading! Is there a specific reason you’d like to find somebody in Toronto. With video chat, it’s possible to work with great therapists anywhere in the world. I always suggest people look for referrals from patients or check out videos, podcasts, and books the therapist has collaborated on or created. Then we can see the types of things they talk about and do with clients and use that to figure out with whom we’d like to work.

  • hi mark
    how are you??
    can please tell me how can stop my medication.
    I am taking antidepressants since 1 year
    but now antidepressants itself became the problem.
    when I stop this medication I get burning sensation in my throat.. it is anxiety as it comes and goes it is affecting my life.
    IAM not able to concentrate on my work.
    And when I again take medicine back it’s fine but temporarily.

    please suggest me dear

    I will be grateful for your suggestions.

    • It can be useful to work with a therapist or doctor as you’re making changes like that. We still have to learn new skills to handle the stuff happening inside of us so it’s important to be working on those skills.

  • Mark-
    Just wanted to THANK YOU for being there and sharing your stories and positivity- my daughter is 15 and has moral OCD and we’ve really been struggling the last few weeks with not engaging with the thoughts and giving them power-it’s just so hard when they present themselves as “you” and twist and turn you around into thinking they’re real. I’m on a Parents of OCD-kids thread and your name and video came up. My daughter LOVES your “Thoughts Vs. Thinking” video and could resonate with so much that you said.
    Thank you thank you keep doing what you do <3

    • Thank you for the kind words, Bernadette. I’m glad your daughter is finding the videos useful and she has you to support her on this journey!
