Still a bit confused. Do you feel physically dizzy? Lightheaded? Or emotionally "dizzy," i.e., overwhelmed, stressed, etc.

From what you describe, this could be the anxiety connected with trying to change. Anxiety, stress, tension, can definitely affect the mind as well as the body. It would probably help you not to push yourself too hard, to be patient and to trust that your efforts are all worthwhile--even small efforts. It's cumulative. If you have any questions about your physical manifestations, by all means, you should discuss this with a mental health professional or physician.

Yours,

in the recently one month, I can control my feelings(doesn't feel unhappy or sad),but still tension & insecurity are same as before.
it's improving, but very very slow.

I wonder how long it will cost to recover.
for example,yr patient in same condition, they cost how much time to slove the problem?

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to progress. Everyone is different as are the circumstances that have led to their emotional struggle. It would be like asking how long does it take to be able to play a musical instrument...everyone is different. Focus on the progress and embrace the small changes along the way, this will motivate you. If you only focus on the end goal, you will wind up discouraging yourself.
