Hi all, I'm new here, so if this conversation has already happened, would you kindly point me to the correct thread? I'm in a tad of predicament. My therapist wants me to be doing something to express and "process" (whatever that means exactly) both my present and past experiences. Journaling is, of course, the go-to and used to work, but lately it has just triggered me terribly. Last night, after I tried journaling, I felt like I was going mad (I'm going to guess it was a strong dissociative episode...), and I didn't even talk about anything that crazy. I'll keep working on timing myself or art journaling, but at the moment, I'm terrified to try again because last night was so hard. Has anyone else experienced this? What has worked for you? What other ways have you found to express yourself without ending up feeling like the world was ending? Thanks so much for any help you can offer!
Do any of you write or blog about your disorders online? I have a blot on tumblr, http://warpedfamily.tumblr.com/ but am hesitant to actually talk about my disorders and issues, even if it would be therapeutic.If any of you do blog about it, do you ever feel worried people will react negatively towards it? And feel free to share links to your blogs if you want, I'm always looking for something to read and it's nice to relate to people.
