What if I get worse again?

You might be worried that feeling better is too good to be true and wonder how you can keep it up.  An excellent way of keeping you on track is to summarise what has been most helpful to you.  You can do this by using our Relapse Prevention form

Ask yourself, “What has worked for me?” But also ask, “What would happen if I began to feel worse?”  Relapse Prevention is about not only knowing what you’ve learned, but building on this new knowledge and knowing how to apply it if the going gets tough again.

If you are interested in hearing more about what professional treatments are available for NEAD as well as self help, go to our Treatment page for more information.
