  1. Almost had a panic attack at work. I feel like I don't know how to be normal.

      Thanks for the safe hug :) @josiel

  2. My "assignment" for my next therapy session is to write down exactly what happened in full detail. I don't even know where to start.

      Writing it all down can be very liberating. I typed out my whole story for my T to read about a year ago.  It's definitely overwhelming to sit down and let everything come out, but for me at least once I started writing, I couldn't stop.  Everything just poured out.  Remember, that all you have to do is write it, you don't have to read it.  I never read what I wrote, even to edit it.  

      Be kind to yourself as you write.

      Thanks so much @snmls My therapist actually wants me to read it aloud to myself. I can't even begin to imagine how I'll react if/when I do. I'm really glad it was liberating for you. I really hope it's the same way for me.

  5. I mean, I understand being in a verbally abusive relationship doesn't exactly scream emergency but the after hours counselor could've sounded just a bit more concerned instead of bored.

      Anytime something or someone breaks you down mentally and emotionally, it screams urgency to me. The word abuse in that statement makes it urgent. You deserve better, from this abuser and you deserve better from your counselor. Sorry this happened. Sitting with you. :hug: if ok.

      Thank you for the safe hugs @MeBeMary She wasn't even my specific counselor. I'm starting to notice a lot of the therapists I've met share this same sentiment. Thank you for the encouraging words.
