At first everything seems to collapse in on you, for me the thoughts became louder more aggressive. With time however it gets easier. The thoughts don't go away, they become quieter and have less of an effect on you. Think of your life where you are in control, where you can laugh at the thoughts. It is alot of work, alot of back and forth. To stay motivated I think of my life where it's at and where I want it to be. It's ok to fail, that's how we learn. The important thing to remember here is Life, I want to live my life where I can genuinely smile and laugh. I will get there, and so can you, take one day at a time and keep pushing forward, Life is meant to be lived, dont let your mind take that from you.
