Are you feeling over-whelmed, lost or confused, and sense you are losing control? Are you finding it hard to admit it to yourself? Perhaps you believe you have to keep it together for everyone else, but that is getting harder to do. When life gets too much, or something bad happens to us, it can be a scary and dark place, and hard to know whom to trust. It is not always easy to talk to the people you are closest to, in case you are not heard and understood, or perhaps you do not want to burden them. In crisis, sometimes our bodies take over, and the stress response starts to have a life of its own. Talking to an 'outsider' can help.
