Hey I have a lot of the same negative thoughts and feelings. It helps me too to come on here. And then we know we aren't alone anymore :)

Thank you Amaya and Teamn xx

I am not good today. I am having a lot of guilt and tears. Also I feel let down and quite angry. These emotions i do not deal with very well.

It feels like the person i thought i was, the person i tried so very hard to be, is found out, and not there anymore. I feel exposed and very vulnerable.
I suppose after wearing a mask for my entire life, it will feel scary. I have no idea how to deal with it though.

I think getting diagnosed brings a whole bunch of weird things to the surface. Mostly emotions. Mostly not good ones. I know we are very different and the emotions are probably too. But the weirdness and the difficulty of it all.. that we are both going through today. So at least we aren't alone :)

I struggle with feeling alone. Even in a crowded room I can feel completely alone.
Today we are both struggling, but have reached out to each other.
Feeling less alone now , and that is a positive xx

Yes it is :)

And we might feel alone, but because of places like this and the people we have in our lives we aren't actually alone. Even though the feeling is so strong you can drown in it.

Somehow we are going to be okay. Today was just a rubish day, but it is nearly over :)
*more hugs*

Yes, it's strange to feel comforted by knowing someone else is going through similar. I feel guilty for that really. I don't want anyone else to feel this bad, yet it helps.

Today has been a strange day. Weekends are difficult for me , and today I have felt very detached.
Tomorrow we have heavy snow forecast. I am panicking I won't be able to escape in my car for an hour. Of course, I feel like a terrible mum for even thinking of escaping.

When you find yourself feeling guilty about how you are feeling.. try to think that nothing you feel can be wrong, because you are feeling it. How you respond to it is a choice, but the feeling isn't and whatever it is, it is really okay to be feeling it. And it is not everything you are, you are more than your feelings, but they are important.

We had snow with thunder and lightening at the same time tonight.. it was really weird, I had never thought that that could happen. Maybe if you can't get your break tomorrow with the car you can just go outside and let the weather freshen you up anyway. It is always surprising to me how much that can really help!
