I've tried CBT and I've tried ACT, none of which worked or helped in the slightest. If anything they made things worse by teaching me to analyse everything that went on and all of the thoughts I had.
I've come to the realisation that plain old ignoring everything that I think of and feel is the only way I can truly get over things and not become too consumed by my emotions.
Ignoring feelings and thoughts isn't healthy but unfortunately seems to be the only thing I have left in my toolbox as a last resort as nothing else has worked. I know this strategy won't help in the long run as I know sooner or later all of these suppressed emotions will find their way out and I'll end up in another state.
I'm running out.
