Who is here and looking in? How are you doing this week?

What kind thing will you do for yourself this week?

Well I have been in and out of here lately....I have been kind of a lurker.
How am I doing?- Well I am not sure. I am working thru some bad emotions. I started to write a letter to my father. I am suprised how many pages I have already. There is alot of anger there. It does feel good to get it out on paper. I am angry at him for so many reasons, for taking my childhood away, denying what he did and taking it to the grave. I know what happend...but I wish I had that validation from him. I wish he would have admitted it to me just once. It bothers me and I don't know if I will ever have peace. I mourn for the father I never had. So many different emotions. Kinda frustrating
This week I have tried to keep busy and try not to slip into that dark hole we all know. So far this year has been bad and very emotional. I hope we can turn it around. I am proud to say that I have done some kind things for me this week. I have started on new meds to help with the depression, I looked at my DBT stuff and will go back to class tomorrow. I have kept up with my tdoc appts this week and I know she will be happy with my progress.
On a side note I am thinking about taking a kickboxing class. It might help me relieve some stress and anger.

Hi AZ,

I want you to know that it is possible to find some closure and healing without that acknowledgement from the abuser. You're making such progress. (((hugs)))

Let us know how the kickboxing goes! Great idea!

I hope you have some a/c to help with that, Kitty. I don't like it when it gets too hot either.

I am here. I don't have much to say, really, but I am here.

I am okay mentally. Physically I feel like I've just run a 25-mile marathon. I've been going and going and going all week and I finally collapsed this morning, cancelled my doctor's appointment, turned around, and went back to sleep.

I'm not really sure what I will do for myself that's kind this week. Maybe finish a book that I've really gotten into?

Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to melisfit's response:
It sounds like you and the T need to have at least one discussion about how you're going to go about therapy so that you feel safe while work still gets done. It may take a little time to find a good balance. But speak up about this, Melisfit.

And discuss what you can do in order to cope with the fallout from the therapy sessions. Therapy is hard work and can often trigger a lot of emotion but it does help in the long run.

And if, after 3 or 4 sessions, you feel this is not a good fit for you, perhaps look into getting another T. But always know that the point of therapy is to work on those issues with which we're often uncomfortable.

I remember when my sons got to be around that age... I felt like I was losing them a bit. But, it turns out, they ended up turning around within another couple of years and now we are all closer than ever. I didn't expect that and it's been a wonderful thing.

Good work with the affirmations, Healing. Sometimes we are so good at being kind to others and less so with ourselves.

I hope the walking helps to ease things a bit.
