Just wondering if any of you keep a journal and find it helpful to write down your feelings, triggers etc...how your feeling good or bad about LIFE, THE A and more??

Hi Kimba, I do journal things on SI. I wrote something 24 hours after D-Day too via email, printed it and it sits in my room. It is so raw and painful to read. I would write myself notes in my Draft folder too and just keep adding to it.

Overall, I find writing things out on SI to other posters very helpful ie: triggers, bad days, good days. I also have a place on my BB when the mood strikes me and I need to write it out. It's a release for me.

I have also written my H 3 letters. I re-read them today. Wow. The first one I really blasted him! I was more sad in #2 written one month later and by #3 written 3 months after D-day I was questioning how much he was getting from IC.

So, while I don't have one journal for all my thoughts, I have written a lot since D-Day.

I journal almost all of it. the good, the bad, the ugly..ooooh the ugly. The counselor I see wants me to journal as much as I can before I slam WH with all my anger. SOmetimes it works...other times it doesn't. *sigh* I sketch in it. I write things in it.....whatever I feel like to get it all out.

I have recently started and it shocked me how much it helps.

Yes. I have a handwritten one and then my blog is my journal as well. It has helped tremendously. My therapist recommended it. I was resistant at first, now its one if my best coping methods.
