I answered a post on Facebook/em and found a topic that could be good for discussion. With just a quick nonscientific check it seems to be about 50-60% of LWEM members are also members/active in the Fb/EM site so this will be redundant to some, but not others.
About 8 months ago an excellent psychiatrist I was seeing suggested I begin keeping a journal. It took a few weeks to get into the habit, but it has become a tremendous tool. Keeping a journal is helpful for facts, but for me a far more important benefit is the mental stimulation. There are times I'll be chuckling out loud or crying with dripping tears as I write to myself. I find it easier to talk with doctors, family and friends since I've been journaling (a new verb). In my writing I'm able to develop a thought process, refine it and understand better how to present my thoughts. It does take time, but that resource is in abundant supply in my life.
