    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    So many emotions...trigger?
    shire_elf posted:
  • **************************************************************************************************************************

    Right now I have so many emotions going through my head. To think that I have spent so many years feeling like I feel right now, in denial that I have a problem. The last five years I have just been trying to hide from the world. I've been trying to come out and live my life again and have found it so hard to do. The stress from being in nursing school has just gotten to me and brought up a lot of emotions that I didn't realize that I still had. I realize now that I just got so used to feeling bad that I don't know what it is like to feel happy, it's all sadness and anger. Even as I am sitting here trying this I am trying to up the emotion back down into me. This has to stop. I need to face this and I don't know how.

    I agree. Consider seeing a therapist to help you navigate this?

    Hi Shire_Elf and welcome hon.
    I'm sorry you are in a bad place. Are you working with a doctor right now? You need to take care of yourself before you can take care of others, you know? I hope you check in again soon, and I hope you find some support here, but reach offline as well and get the help you need to feel better.
    Again welcome, I'm glad you found us.

    When the world says, Give up,
    Hope whispers, Try it one more time.
