    Har du återkommande tankar kopplat till ditt missfall eller framtida graviditet som loopar i ditt huvud? Tankar som påverkar sanningen du lär dig själv som exempelvis får dig att känna skuld, oro, stress, nedstämdhet eller rädsla? Den här övningen hjälper dig som är ofrivilligt barnlös att byta ut de negativa tankarna mot nya som hjälper dig att skapa ett nytt fokus framåt.

    För dig som är ofrivilligt barnlös

    Rädslan och oron över att inte kunna bli gravid igen efter missfall kan ofta vara överväldigande. Det är viktigt att ha med sig att allt du känner och vad du än känner efter missfall är normalt. Tillåt dig själv att känna alla känslor så länge som du behöver! För dig som är fast i rädslan men samtidigt vill övervinna den så guidar Liss dig genom en övning i flera steg för att lyckas skapa lugn och mod igen.

    Övning! Gör såhär:

    Ta fram papper och penna och ge dig själv tid när du ska ta dig igenom den här övningen. Målet med övningen är att du ska komma ur de jobbiga tankebanorna som du är fast i och istället fokusera på något som känns mer positivt.

    1. Skriv ner allt det du oroar dig för, det som loopar i ditt huvud ofta.

    Exempelvis “Jag fick missfall för att jag stressade för mycket på jobbet” or “Min kropp stötte bort mitt barn, jag kommer aldrig bli mamma”.

    2. Fundera och svara på följande:

    Är det du tänker/oroar dig för sant?

    Vad är bevisen för det?

    Är det rationellt?

    Hjälper respektive tanke/oro dig på något sätt?

    Hur känner du när du tänker så?

     3. Fundera på och skriv ner hur du skulle vilja tänka istället.

    Exempelvis Stress påverkade inte att jag fick missfall, men för att må bra vill jag hitta en bättre balans i livet” or “Min graviditet avslutades den här gången, men nästa gång kan det vara min tur att bli mamma”.

    4. Läs igenom det du har skrivit och stanna upp vid varje nyformulerad tanke. Hur känner du när du tänker så?

    5. Hur ser du på framtiden när du tänker på det här nya sättet?

    6. Skriv slutligen ner vad du kan och vill göra för att byta ut de gamla tankarna mot de nya.

    Exempelvis ”Börja dagen med att läsa de nya välgörande meningarna i sängen innan jag går upp” or ”Ha post-its med det jag vill tänka på spegeln/datorn/skrivbordet”.

    Avslutningsvis, kom ihåg att det kan ta tid att byta tankebanor som man har varit fast i under en längre period. Var snäll mot dig själv – varje litet steg framåt är ett steg mot att må lite bättre.
