I understand...I can't tell you how many times I've done that...
I actually texted someone last night with a link to my post...and then texted again and asked them to just delete it...cause i chickened out...
You made plans to tell someone...that is a start...take it in steps...maybe next time say "i'm not ok, but i'm not ready to talk about it" let them know what you are and aren't comfortable with...it's not an all or nothing situation
((((((hugs)))))) you can do this

Yeah, having something in writing next time might be a good idea. But next time is days away and I'm freaking out because I just feel like I can't stand this misery another second. I have lots of DBT homework again so hopefully working on that will help and not make me feel more hopeless.
please cut yourself a break.you are hurting yourself by stressing so much. you didnt fail you are not there yet as farvas the trust goes.you will know when you are ready. ireally want to say more but this phone is not easy
I was just there yesterday and I wasn't able to voice how I feel so in all honesty I'm not sure going back would help. Plus they (the DBT class T and my student T) told me if I got in crisis to call them and they would help over the phone, and they gave me their numbers. I just don't think I would call.... I mean, what would I say? I don't have the words and phone conversations freak me out to begin with. So far today I am okay... P and I spent the morning at the beach and it's finally warm enough for me to let her get into the water again so she was shrieking and laughing and having the best time. Maybe I'll post a pic later.
I totally understand that, I do that too. Sometimes it just happens, like Im on auto pilot. I want to tell but when it comes time to say something I just freeze and say nothing. There will be times in therapy when that doesnt happen, just be patience.
