A musical artist I follow posted about DARE a few years ago

A CBT specialist recommended it to me and said his clients were getting a lot out of the DARE book. I ordered it the same day he told me about it! Soon into the book and after finishing it, I did not need the CBT specialist anymore.

That’s great Brittney. We have to spread the word to CBT therapists. I went through several therapists until finding one that helped me. I told her about DARE and she said she will recommend it for people with anxiety in the future.
alfredogodinez
14:21
I did both DARE and traditional therapy
Brittney Stacy
16:37
Me too! I was doing just about anything and putting my faith in therapy and a DARE book I knew nothing about at the time ha. It's nice to know my journey might be similar to others :)

I’ve been feeling the same way. I feel like I’m stuck in this phase. It’s like I’m constantly fighting my thought to not flip back to the dark place

At the top of the Dare Advanced Page, you’ll see headings like “About” “Discussion” etc. Click on “More” and then click on “Files.” There you’ll find Aida’s uploads.

Being in that phase is a sign of progress. I couldn’t believe I had gotten better but I reminded myself that I was far worse before. Just look at it as a sign you are recovering
Benita Bell
32:56
Alfredo, What do you do during the “space”?
Chris Polizzi
33:49
I still ruminate, but am able to defuse, then ruminate again....ugghhh
alfredogodinez
34:42
Try to relax, go spaghetti, do the Dare steps
Benita Bell
35:23
Ok thanks
alfredogodinez
35:43
I used to diffuse, repeat I accept and allow these anxious thoughts/feelings, then I ran toward and challenged my anxiety to give me more.
alfredogodinez
36:25
The diffuse that worked for me was Barry explaining what anxiety was. It is just adrenaline in the body. Same was when you are excited.
Chris Polizzi
36:34
I'm having more anxiety lately, but it's very short lived is this part of recovery?
alfredogodinez
36:50
So I begin to believe my anxiety is natural and won’t hurt me. ANXIETY WONT HURT YOU
alfredogodinez
37:04
IT IS JUST ANXIETY
alfredogodinez
37:08
That diffuse worked for me
alfredogodinez
37:20
I began to say OH IT IS JUST ANXIETY
alfredogodinez
37:28
Took the fear and sting out of it
alfredogodinez
38:04
Yeah Chris your anxiety spells will lessen in time and intensity when you are recovering
Brittney Stacy
38:10
I use the: worried voice, false comfort and wise mind analogy. Helps me create distance with the thoughts/sensations and helps me be the actual observer, not participant. Helps with rumination. I use to be so wrapped up in it but it's helped me look at it for what it is
Benita Bell
38:12
Appreciate this feedback Alfredo
Chris Polizzi
38:28
Thank you Alfredo
alfredogodinez
38:47
You are on the right path. Expect it to come back like a pop quiz at times. You will be prepared for it tho
Derek
39:34
The space gives me time to apply some logic to the situation. My internal conversation lets me see that this is not an immediate emergency I understand he issue and know that I will deal with it at the appropriate time but for now there is no danger - back to engage
Benita Bell
49:06
Aida I got cutoff from my breakout room!
DARE
49:26
In which have you been?
Benita Bell
49:50
I am with Jackie and Amy and Luke
alfredogodinez
01:11:10
That’s right Derek. The one thing I got out of CBT traditional therapy was to apply logic to my fearful anxiety thoughts
