  1. My T still hasn't sent me the work we did on Thursday and I need it because it has affirmations about the memory we are focusing on. I'm having a lot of denial and am concerned about this affecting my job...

      I hope you got your work back. Affirmations are very important. Even tho I don't know the affirmations you discussed with her, I have one for you. I hope you believe.

      50 Positive Affirmations To Calm An Anxious Mind - Zoella

  2. Something that may come as no surprise to some, is the fact that being a young and easily manipulated teenager with unregulated wifi in their house... is quite dangerous for the child's safety. I was 14. A young and very insecure girl, with a laptop and a newfound curiosity for multiplayer games, chatrooms and omegle. Oh, omegle. That bloody website. I wish I didn't know about it... but all the cool Youtubers were using it. It was an enticing concept, meeting new people with other experiences in life. A 1 on 1 conversation with a complete stranger. Fascinating... Soon into my discove
  3. Im a wreck right now. Just did CBT and had to revisit a certain memory and update it with affirmations... I can't wait til she sends me the work we did so that I can look it over and feel better about my sa later.

  5. Welcome, @EvilRegal I'm so sorry for what brought you here. I just wanted to say that you don't have to disclose anything that you're not comfortable with here, and this is always a safe space for anything you want to talk about! Also, I absolutely adore cats and am a massive coffee and chocolate addict! I respect your interests 😄
  6. Yesterday an older man stopped me in the queue for groceries after staring at me for a while and said "just thought I'd let you know, cider vinegar is really good for bad complexion and acne"

    The suggestion was helpful, but jeeeez, a little rude commenting on a stranger's acne, right?

      Yes a bit rude to just blurt it out to someone else in the queue. It seems that during these difficult times a lot of folks are forgetting social norms and courtesy. What did you say in reply?  Here are a couple of mine off the top of my head. 

      • "Thank you for the information. Did you know that getting a kick in the shins helps old folks to mind their own business?"
      • "Did you know that shutting your mouth is good for your health?"

      Yes I noticed that! It seems like people have just forgotten how to be polite! I was actually very polite and just said "Ah really? Thank you, I'll look it up later." and I scurried off as soon as possible haha. I can't be mean to strangers, unless they're catcalling and stuff like that. But when someone brings up an insecurity of mine, I completely freeze up and I can't be aggressive for some reason! Those responses are amazing, thanks for that 😂 Definitely brightened my day!

  7. Windows have come to be a prominent part of my life. I don't mean physical windows, no no, but the windows that guide me through the motions of every day life. I feel that my life is spent behind lenses, and not just my glasses. It's difficult to explain but I feel that these windows can be both good and bad for me. Sometimes, the window is clear. My brain wants me to see the reality of what is happening and what has happened. Sometimes I like it, and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I like remembering and seeing the things that have hurt me, with hindsight and understanding. It helps me to t
  8. Everything feels so unreal. I don't know who I am. I don't know if my actions are truly mine. Someone else is piloting my body. I want control back. Did I ever truly have it in the first place?

      Such a respectable and admirable direction to go into. You will be helping people...hopefully, as well...no COVID patients, bc COVID has buggered off. :lol: 

  10. Hi guys, just a little blog post. With what's going on, I've been increasingly finding it difficult to keep up a face that isn't damaged by the relationship rape I went through. (I hate saying that word, it's getting difficult for me to believe myself anymore). I've told my sibling, but when I did, she just didn't really respond well, which is understandable because it doesn't sound believable. I don't think she understands how people can remember a few years down the line. So I don't want to make her remember or get angry at me. It always ends with her kind of being frustrated that
