    Hi Shadow,

    Sorry to here your not well at the moment!

    Try writing it down. I've got a file on my pc where i write it all down if it gets to much.

    Write it all down and give it to your theripst next time you see them. If your not comfortable with them reading it in front of you ask them to read it another time. It does take alot of pressure off you because i feel you dont have to say things out loud but your still letting someone in.

    Take care

    Hey Shadow

    I don't know if possible but I would try and see if you can get to speak to therapist before next week. even by phone. don't cut yourself off. do you have a cpn or something? even your GP.

    Orb is right - I am having to keep a food diary at the moment and although it started just about what I eat I now use it to put how I am feeling down. This way the psychiatrist gets a better way of how I am thinking which I hope will help to get me the right help.

    It took me years to be able to talk about things that happened to me - look at it as a way of your body being able to deal with it. the fact that you want to talk about it is good. So try and write things down, you don't have to read it back to yourself but it might make it lasting til next session easier.

    take care and hope you a bit better today.

    Orb - how you doing as well

    Hi Shadow,

    Why wouldnt we take the time to reply? Of course you mean something to us or else we wouldnt have replied in the first place. smile

    Dont call them your idiot files, call it a story! Write it all down start to finish, dont read back or try to edit it and ask someone to read it (it can be your theripist or someone else)

    Even if you dont want anyone to see it keep it somewhere safe and close at hand!

    It took me 7 years to admit what happened to me, to say it out loud! and the peace that came after it was not what i expected. I thought i would drown in the words that i spoke! But it was sheer relief!!

    Take care
