So after I wrote the blog last night I began to let my mind wonder to all of the emotions and the questions that I have been hiding away for so long. I was able to face those fears, questions, emotions, and every other thought that was being pushed down. I know that I still need to talk to someone about it and I will but I can tell you that I'm so totally thankful for it. It has lifted a weight that has been pushing me down deeper and deeper into a dark and scary place. I hope that with time I can see the change in both my body and my mind. It's so amazing how much somethings can weigh you down when you carry it around instead of getting it out in the open. So I'm here to tell everyone how much it has helped me in just one day and I can't wait to see the long term effects.
