I feel as if I'm trapped and can't get anything out, I know I need to talk to some one, to vent but it seems like every time I try to nothing leaves my mouth, It takes me minutes to think of a reply to a simple question. When ever I'm around people or on the phone with them I just don't say anything, can't say anything, I just have nothing to say anymore, nothing to think, Everyday, Every hour I feel different in extreme ways and I can't get anything out.
Any suggestions?

Your not alone on these feelings. I'm new here also. Reading past post, seeing that others are feeling the same way, kind of helps. Our heads can think up the worst thing we can imagine.

I am also a newie. Im constantly thinking about what i am going to reply to the simplist of questions. I get tongue tied, and forget what was asked and what im going to say. Just concentrating on the simplist every day things is a challenge for me. I also when the phone rings dont know what to say, to people i know, its horrible. Your not the only 1 that feels this way, ur probably tame compared to me, but just remember u arent alone hun :hearts:

Oh (((ingriddd)))

You've been through so much. I think you're just overwhelmed by it.

You don't have to force it. You don't have to have all the words right now, but you don't have to hold it in either. You have permission to do whatever feels safest and easiest right now.

If it were me, I'd pick up my journal and start writing. I'd write about anything I felt -- even if I felt nothing, I'd write about the nothing. Don't worry about what you write. Don't worry if it sounds crazy or silly or embarrassing. Just write because nobody has to read it but you (and maybe a therapist if you decided to share it).

Or I'd paint. Try to paint the numb. What color is silence? Again, doesn't have to be anything, can just be blobs of color. Just let go and let the colors express your feelings.

I find when I'm depressed, I paint with a lot of red and black.

What color is your grief?

Take care,
Savannah

When I'm stuck in my head, I like to excersize it out. Nothing like physical exhaustion to beat down any of my psychological defenses.

p.s., don't get stuck in my head, it's not fun.
