A morning brain dump
Booked back in with my psych yesterday, first time in 18 months. Should've done it sooner. But now I've done the work I have over the last 4+ months I want to use her help to get better at that work. Actually excited to see her and tell her everything I've done and see how she can help me moving forward!
Oh gosh Ben, I teared up reading your last line. If you have no one email me. 🙌. Bravo for being honest and opening up a safe space for conversation.
Sometimes its easier for us to open up to a stranger because we feel we will get less judgement from them than those closest to us.
Terrific brain dump today Ben. Many of us reading this kno exactly what you mean. As you say, sometimes you can be on top of all the control measures but still you feel down. It takes a lot of energy to recognise and then act. For me, the trick is recognising the signs early, but it doesn’t always work that way. These very open stories are appreciated. Thank you
Well said Benny, good to see you up and about mate.
Well put Benny. I think a lot of us want to be self sufficient but you’re bang on, community is key.
We need to increase those social transactions of vulnerability. They increase connection but they also improve our personal foundation.
