I am not prone to showing positive emotion too often.
Thanks for being here. I have searched for a couple of days for a palce that had active contributers. I do not have any real friends and what family life I do have is outstanding but still insufficient for my needs.
I am begining to feel that I have underrated self-help over the years and am being re-born, despite that I am 59, to succeed in healing myself. I have recently reaffirmed my religion and have just now read about Cognitive Behavior Therepy.
Somehow I never felt needed or truely loved by anyone. This despite their best intentions to show me otherwise.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I befefit a great deal in seeing similarity in others problems. This is knowing that I am not alone.
Thank you for being here.

You are SO welcome, glad to hear thgat you have found helpful info/advice and risen to the occasion and want to help yourself.

A great place for really understanding the whole ball of was is Go to the left hand side bar and hit your diagnosis. I am working on Emotional Intelligence now.

Also, recommend David Burns, "Feeling Good" and "The New Mood Therapy" Classics, available used on Amazon. He has a list of 14 common cognitive distortions that have helped my screwed up thinking alot. I print out things that are ah ha moments, highlight them. and keep in a folder. return to them on occasion, and re-experience the ah ha moment again and realize how easy it is to revert to the stinkin thinkin.

Don't underestimate of a good vent. This is the place.

So glad you posted !

Hello chman,

Welcome to HealingWell !

Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People with health conditions, as well as their friends and families find support groups to be a valuable resource and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal", educate others, or just let off steam. IMHO joining a support group is joining a family is a wonderful thing so talk with us and we will do our best to help you. 

I would hope you  stay with us as we know  where your coming from and what your going through.

You are a valuable member of our family J
