I sometimes feel like my assistance-dog Kalle: Under a huge heap of blankets I try to “recover” and “be myself” again. I then have the feeling that my illness /depression will go on forever. This seems to be something that my dog doesn’t do: Although he was suffering after the operation he could “turn on” to joy more easily (see photo below). Each day we went for a walk a little bit longer. Now he has become his good old self again. When I was diagnosed with “Burnout” and entered the psychosomatic clinic I could not imagine that I would ever feel energetic and happy again. Looking back it had been a long way, but I know now that every step-even the little steps backwarts were worth it. On this Website I put a reading extract describing my time in the psychosomatic clinic. It may be of some help to you.
