Mark’s Journey – Back home, earlier than expected

Well, I’m back home much earlier than I had originally anticipated.  The 45-60 day residential program I was attending was cut short because my insurance company decided to stop paying after two weeks.  I would never have imagined that they would have approved me to attend a residential facility and then pull the rug out from under me after 14 days, but that’s how insurance companies operate in the “free market always knows best” land that we live in.  I’m upset but I am practicing Radical Acceptance, a skill I learned while receiving treatment.  It’s part of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which I was introduced to for the first time during my journey to Wisconsin.  I can say without doubt that the time I spent there was worth it and I’m glad that I had the chance to even go for that amount of time.  I believe DBT is the missing link that I’ve been looking for.  I talk about this and where I’m currently at in my journey in a vlog post on the YouTube channel.
