Default Emotionally Repressed.

Hello to everyone.

I'm James and I've been encouraged, by my therapist, to go out and look for social support. So I'm starting here. The problem is that I have a terrible time expressing any emotion that might be swirling around in my head, if there is one at all, and that tends to create problems with my social acquaintances. To be honest, I don't think it's that much of a problem seeing as how I don't really have any friends, albeit I do have a girlfriend and she expresses disappointment at my lack of intimacy. So maybe this is a good idea, I'll soon see.
Anyway, it's a pleasure to be here and I hope this experience reveals itself to be positive.

Hi James. Welcome to Psych Central. The best idea would be to check out our forums and when you see something you want to reply to just post. Or if you have a questions start your own thread. You will start to get to know people and make friends. The more you try to respond to threads I think you will start to notice more feelings, at least, I assume that's the idea. You and PM me if you have any questions. Glad to have you here.

Hello James and welcome. Just feel free to post whatever you want. I admit to express my emotions, I use a private mood journal where I can write whatever I feel. Maybe you should give that a try.
