    ok, i went thru a bunch of the old posts where people talked about DBT, but none of them talked about what it really is or consists of. my therapist, K, told me a lil about it on Wednesday, and we talked about "mindfulness". i know i can go online to other websites to find out more, but i can't do that at work cuz i can only access webmd (crazy huh?). can anyone give me some websites to check out? i'll see if i can access them from my phone then maybe go to the library sometime. anyway, just wondering...

    btw...today's been blah...don't know why. it's almost as if i get worse when the weekend comes becuz i know i wouldn't be able to get hold of K if i needed her and i'm so totally alone i don't have anyone to talk to or call if i needed to. *shrugs* such is my life.

    This is an excellent website about DBT. There's a ton information about the skills, the reason for learning them, and diary cards.

    You'll probably need to spend a fair amount of time there. The website is packed with information.
