Journaling advices please?

Hi, I was advised by my therapist to have a thought journal. I had a journal but it was just me writing down whatever that I feel like writing, I wasn’t sure what the therapist wants to know. She want me to write down 1) events that happened, 2) my emotions/physical sensations and 3) my thoughts... But my thoughts are a lot, and they just keep coming up, like a overflowing basin, I am not sure how I can write it in the template given. Sometimes I have thoughts even without doing anything, like example I will just remember that my life is in a mess, I am so stuck, I cannot even die because I already tried taking all my meds but I still woke up, then I am super scared that I will be warded if I ever mention/ask about suicide again, I feel scared that I will be bullied if I am warded, Blah Blah Blah... I think this shouldn’t be new to anxiety sufferers. Please do share with me, how do you fit your thoughts into such thought journal template? I want to really put effort into these “homework” so that I can recover from social anxiety, go back to my work, my social circle and my studies... Thank you in advance:)

How does music play a role in your recovery journey? 🎶

Music is an important part of my life. It can really help my mood, and also validate it. As a writer, lyrics are very important to me.

One song that has been really helpful during my recovery is Best Coast’s “For The First Time.” The lyrics, “I guess this is what they mean / When they say / People can change / ’Cause I finally feel free / I feel like myself again / But for the first time” really resonate. I listen to their album “Always Tomorrow” almost every single day. I find it incredibly soothing and helpful on my recovery journey.

Share with me below how music plays a role in your recovery journey. Maybe you, like me, find that listening to music is super beneficial. Or maybe you play an instrument or sing. I’d love to know. ❤️

How do you maintain #Recovery as a full time student? #recoverywarriors

Every time something goes wrong with school I get sucked back into #Selfharm and #Addiction . I found out I might have to switch community colleges to get the right major to get into the university. I guess I have this need to do school perfectly like I did in high school. College the first and second times was a mess. My brain is messing with me and I am worried that I’ll get discouraged by having to transfer again and possibly having to repeat courses that won’t transfer. I don’t know how to manage stress without self harm and many types of addictions including eating disorders and alcohol. I don’t want to fall back into those patterns because I want to succeed this time. I have 3 years sober; also 2 more days and I’ll have 17 months clean from self harm.
