    More Social Than My Good Old Journal

    I have kept a journal as long as I have been able to write without much effort, and I still do. It's the best way for me to "discover myself", understand what I really think and have some stability in the self formed picture and opinion about myself. Still, it doesn't answer me...

    After dealing with the cheating that my husband has done to me, many friends have advised me to seek help/therapy. Even though I have finally come to realize it really is an issue/addiction of his-that he can't stop doing this to us...I may need to seek outside sources to heal...

    I think this is such a great site.

    I can come here and express myself good or bad, happy or sad, with attitude or not and it helps me. It's anonymous as you would like it to be(or not). I feel oddly comfortable telling complete strangers very personal aspects of my life and I either end up with advise or hear...

    This Site Has Been So Helpful

    I have been using this site for self help therapy because my therapist I was ordered to see wanted me to try this site. It has worked so well for me that now I am on a "as needed" basis instead of every week with her. I have major depression, Panic disorder, along with a little...

    But Will It Help?

    I'm not sure yet. It has already helped me a bit, but at this point I'm not sure if it's part of the solution or part of the problem. EP is like being at a group therapy session where the therapist has left the room. Will the clients be able to work it out on their own? Can we...

    Therapists are not instant.

    They cost money and you have to have appointments. Writing stories is therapeutic, by helping you to get rid of what's in your head or helping you to understand yourself better. You can feel better or more understanding, even if no one reads it or comments. Sometimes it does...

    A Safe Place To Vent And Not Feel Alone

    A friend of mine has been relentless about me writing in a journal to help me cope with the struggles I've had coping with divorce and now being a single-mother. I don't have any problems writing and expressing my pains. What I have a problem with is that I don't want any...

    Oh Hell Yea!!!!!!!

    I am seeking an everlasting identity, just like most naive teenagers..bleh.. I am trying to deal with what seems  to be an eating disorder. I am attempting to deal with my extreme insecurities and self doubt. And EP is my way of venting, my way of coping.
