Did you take any steps to start seeing a therapist? There are some great ones out there that can for sure help you. We just need to find you the right fit. If you can afford private, check out the OKclarity directory. Otherwise, try OHEL or Pesach Tikvah clinics.
+1000 to everything Chavy said. We are here for you and cheering you on. Please take care of yourself and find a therapist – there are clinics that more than likely accept your insurance and you wouldn’t need to pay anything or a small copay. Buy yourself something nice and do good things for yourself. Don’t beat yourself up for not being in…Read More
It feels stupid to use the same words as everyone else, but it’s the one that best describes your post – Wow. Just wow! You did some awesome job there. I came on here and looked at your post thinking to myself “Why on earth is it so long? Who has time to read that?” But its 1:22 am and it was so intriguing and well written – it…Read More
Thank you Yehuda! Sorry for the delay in responding to you. You should really check out the book if you feel you can gain from it or perhaps your clients can. I listened to it on Audible and it was great. The KonMari method is actually spreading like fire across the country as she started a popular Netflix TV show… Feel free to let me know if I…Read More
Yes, that makes sense and I don’t think there’s another place. You can try typing the ISBN numbers into Amazon and see what the book is selling for. You’ll probably see that it’s selling for very little and that’s why these places aren’t offering you anything as it’s not worth it to them to pay for shipping processing etc.. you can always sell t…Read More
I can totally relate to your struggle! I tend to overeat on Shabbos as well. When there’s so much food in sight, I want to eat everything – not just because it’s delicious – but because I don’t want to miss out on the opportunity (this might be an additional slight mutation to my issue that I have and you don’t). So I try to think like…Read More
Beautiful post Suave! Love the Torah source. I think to answer on a very basic level, the way we know when an emotional discomfort is an issue that needs professional intervention is as soon as it starts interfering with living out everyday lives like normal humans. If we have normal nerves about an upcoming meeting or test, that doesn’t need p…Read More
Wow this a really great discussion. (I think your comment actually posted twice by accident.) so you’re saying that you’re anxiety is about not having enough emunah? That’s a really interesting spin on things… and I think it’s like a really high level. Like religious anxiety.
So happy writing it out helped you. I also find that writing on here…Read More
I had also wanted to point out that perhaps you can throw away the books and research things online when you need to. Unless you know you like going back to your college books. Either way I think you can gain a lot from the KonMari book. Good luck.
Hi @chavy. Thanks for your reply. I listened to the whole book on Audible and did the process pretty much myself. I tweeked it a bit (started with papers cuz that was my main problem) and didn’t really have help from the KonMari people. I actually hired a KonMari professional to help a relative of mine and I spoke to this professional (not M…Read More
Hi everyone! Just thought of giving an update. I can’t say I’m completely done because I still have a small pile of electronics I need to go through and either sell or throw away and also I need a professional Marie Kondo person (they have online that you can hire for a few hours) to help me with memorabilia (unless I’m able to relisten to the b…Read More
