I totally agree with everything you say. I also came to realize that trying to convince certain friends or family members that I *really* was sick, and that the very last thing I needed was to go back to a psychiatrist or doctor, was not only exhausting but counterproductive. Having to insist on what you are experiencing or prove what you are going through reifies the experience, prevents it from mutating and resolving itself. Letting yourself be distracted, not defining where you are… this opens your mind and body to allow healing. It’s as if you were to analyze every single thing you are doing when you ride a bike and describe it to someone else. It makes riding naturally that much harder!
