how do i achieve outcome independence

    I really need help in becoming outcome independent?

    i spend so much of my my day thinking about how i did well on a good day or what proof i have and how i don't need to do anything when im sitting around in pain , that its okay, but this thinking has become automatic and i know its not helping, i try to watch the thoughts go by but i find that so hard, i don't know what to do most o the day as im stuck in with my child and i cant do my drawing or crafts because he wont let me

    once i managed to be outcome independent and my symptoms went or two hours, i didnt realsise i was doing OI,i focused on welcoming the fear and sensations and told my brain we would only do what we felt safe doing. but since then i can't seem to achieve that, i just feel so fucked up by my thoughts.

    i try thinking o what i see smell and that feels hard doing it all day, im sure this is not supposed to be as hard as I've created it.

    my son will be 2 this year and i want his mummy to be happier and not crying everyday

    id do anything to just feel confident, ive been doing this a year and still have no energy to live my life, and flares happen every few days, like if i have a few better days then bam its high and im scared again, this is the pattern

    Go back to practicing OI when symptoms have died down and you'll be able to tolerate flares better

    Do you have support in raising your child?
