Got outside the wrong side of bed. Glad to be getting 5 months of CBT. First appointment was this morning. I was asked 'do you have difficulty talking about your emotions?' Said yes.I wanted to say no

I want to talk to H. She knows what to say in these situations. She doesn't say much but when she does I listen. I just don't know what I want to ask her.

beautifully said. My favorite teachers hail from India, China, Tibet, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Korea. I have also found great wisdom in the traditions & cultures of Afghanistan, Syria, Palestine/Israel, Iran & Iraq.

Most of these cultures are ancient, dating back thousands of years. US, by contrast, is about 250 years old. We can learn much from our elder brothers and sisters.

Maybe a disassociated or something. Got charged by 4 horses and had to jump over a fence to escape. My mum got bitten by one of them on my shoulder and they harassed my parents for a while.
John T
18 Oct 2020 · LEGEND

My Dad had to raise his walking stick and shoulder charge them to scare them off. The horses began circling around them until they got out of the field. I feel like my heartbeat barely raised, as though it wasn't really as exciting as it sounds
