eeek...there's a hard one. I beleive that you can but eventually you're going to need someone. i would recommend getting a counsellor. trust me, it'll get easier to talk about stuff. i didnt talk much during my first month or so and now i talk and talk and talk. it'll get easier.

Dear Lost alone within myself, it is hard to talk about what happened. Usually this is because we are so used to stuffing our feelings, so that it becomes a very hard struggle to get the words out, or even identify what our feelings are. Getting a therapist will help. Therapists are trained in helping you resolve your issues. This takes time and patience. So give yourself time, it's the best present you can give yourself. Esmerelda Wink Laughing Smile

Going it alone would be very difficult. However if you're finding it hard to talk, there are alternatives.

There are creative therapies that work with symbolisms and art type of things. There's online therapy or coaching such as I do. If you want you can look on: www.opeigenkracht.nu

These are powerful ways of helping yourself!The title of the website means: On your own strenght, which, from the sound of it is what you're hoping to do.

I hope you will find a way to support yourself as you go through this, going it alone.. phew... I wouldn't have been able to. Hiring help is one way of taking good care of yourself as well.

good luck

Ivonne
