For years, I have not been able to show emotion in therapy. I always wondered how some people could get in touch with their emotions so easily. 

Yesterday, was the first time that I got in touch with all of the hurt and pain from the past. It sucked! Apparently, in therapy, feeling like crap is a good thing. My therapist even commented that we have moved to the next stage in recovery and that this wonderful feeling is going to last a while. 

Really!!!! Isn’t there an easier way? No, not really. I just hope that I am strong enough to get through this next “stage”.
