I am scheduled for a therapy session on Thursday, but I really wish it was sooner. I feel like I could honestly have therapy every day of the week and it would still not be enough time. I just have so much bottled up inside of me- years of built up anger and resentment and pain- and it really needs to come out. I am feeling much better than I did a few weeks ago. My mood has improved a lot, but I still feel weighed down by all this deep-rooted pain along with the stresses of everyday life in the present. I am so upset that I'm having trouble sleeping because I can't get my mind to stop thinking about upsetting things. I do believe that with time this therapist can help me overcome my issues, truly understand all that is bothering me and learn to move on and deal with all of it. I am just so anxious to get this process started. I'm impatient. I have made some progress, but I am not satisfied with that. I want more. I know I should try to stay positive and focus on what is good in my life and be thankful for what progress I've already made. It's just really hard for me to not be negative sometimes. I have been writing in a journal which does help a little to get my feelings out, but there are so many that I can't possibly write it all down. Does anybody have any suggestions for what to do in between therapy sessions? Perhaps a recommendation for a good self-help book or other resources/tips? Or maybe just some relaxation tips so I can stop thinking so much? Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
