That was a very good idea. I too express myself better in writing than I do when I try to express my thoughts. It's like they get lost from my head as they come out of my mouth. I'm going to do the journal idea. I've been keeping journal for some time now and that's what made me realize it was really seriously time for some help. Every entry even from a year ago was started out with; I'm tired or I'm lonely or Im bored and I thought ok I was feeling these things a year ago no wonder I'm falling apart and exhausted these days. I've been carrying all that around for a long time.
By the way my name is Julie. Nice to meet you.
