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
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.

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?
