Spin Cycle

Hey All,

I have a article called the spin cycle by Russel Barkely. I've only skimmed though it ( ya think) However my search keywords Stuck,cycle,helpless and then ADHD something like that. It's pretty lengthy so I didnt want to just post. Let me know if you want me too?

I dont come here enough for people yto know me ,and I'm, no special case but I got this stuff real bad I'm in my 5th year and I am a 58 yr old music composer/musician, trying now to learn how to take that energy someplace constructive.

Here'
s a little part I thought should be shared. I highlighted the parts that resonated with me.

Thanks for listening/Reading

Dave

Russel B.

I call these periods of being stuck “spinning,” based on an acronym, S.P.I.N. The

term sums up the usual causes of getting stuck:

“S
stands for Shame.


“P stands for Pessimism and Negativity

I” stands for Isolation


“N”stands for No Creative, Productive Outlet.



Getting un-stuck often depends on reversing the influence of some or all of the

components of SPIN. You can do this with a therapist, a coach, a spouse,

a support group, a friend, a pastor, a relative, or all of the above. Let me offer some

suggestions on each element of SPIN.

Shame derives it's power from being unspeakable.
Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.
Shame cannot survive being spoken. It can't survive empathy.

Re: Spin Cycle

Shame causes the need for isolation.
And the pessimism and negativity blocks the creative and productive outlet.

basically SPIN causes depression it seems. What suggestions were made on the individual elements?

Re: Spin Cycle

Thank-you namazu for the correction. It's always one of those 2 guys.

They use the spin cycle in many therapys,

Meaning example.. I went to marriage counsiling and discovered that my wife an I argue about the same crap over and over. (Spinning) What us guys /couples are fighting about has probably no bearing on what the problem really is.

My experience says."The wife is asking for is someone to listen and keep her safe".

Us guys just go on scratching our heads asking ourself.Why are we feeling like crap again.

It's not the womans job to tell you (although it would be nice,) and some actually do,

If the guy pays attentionah o} at least at therapy he will hear that ,that is if he takes his meds before counsiling session, Or even knows he has a problem with Attention in the first place

Dave
