I really struggle to open up about my feelings or even process them, I’m in therapy but I’ve never been able to show emotion I can talk about things plenty but from a neutral calm perspective I can’t stand crying in front of people but I love crying alone I don’t know why I’m like this or how to stop it, I switch into this logical calm person when talking about my feelings and it makes me confused on what I even feel like am I emotional like I thought I was when I was alone or am I actually calm and chill about it I don’t know. I’m trying to process this autoimmune disease I have and how it’s taken my life from me and I don’t know how to process it and it makes me fearful that I’ll crash at some point because the emotions hit me all at once or something. I should be sad or scared or something and I feel like I’m not, I am a little bit sometimes but not enough and not most of the time and I don’t know why.

      I feel this. It's so difficult starting to actually feel feelings instead of analyzing them. I've tried writing my thoughts and feelings and then scanning or taking pictures to send to my therapist to talk about what I felt then. I've gotten out of that habit recently, but it helped when I did it.

        @asdfghjklfancat yeah I try writing things down when i am feeling them and music and film helps but when I look back I’m so detached from it I can’t even tell what I really believe
