Arrow Welcome to Coping with Emotions

Many people have questions about emotions and how to better deal with them... this forum will allow individuals to help one another learn to recognize emotions, and learn to better cope with them in a positive manner in their lives.

Thanks DocJohn! This will surely help members --and others who read here-- to assess how their feelings are orchestrating their lives, and if they are. It will also be easier to give support along these lines because, by posting here, they would have already realized their emotions are getting "in the way" of their lives. It's always been an iffy posting for me to try and give support in some of the other forums, noting less than healthy feelings, but being unsure if the member is ready to hear what, imo, needs to be said.

This is going to help many members heal faster I think!

DocJohn, Thanks for starting this forum.

Emotions are/were a mystery to me.
Recently found out that my emotions serve a purpose and not something to avoid at all costs. And the cost was my health. (Depression)

I look forward to meeting others and together we can help each other with our emotional life.

Is there a Smilie for gratitude?

I too struggle with naming my emotions. I grew up in a house where it wasn't safe to express any emotions and then when I got to college I was but on such a high dose of Paxil that I felt numb to everything. Since then I am now off the Paxil (4 months) and now on Pristiq. So I am still trying to figure out the names of emotions as I have them.

Thankyou Physician there is need of this place; anger seems to be one emotion that most people feel but work on the least

Thank you ~ you seemed to answer my wish! A lot of times, I am overwhelmed by feelings and just don't know what to do what to do. I do have some techniques to make it through...but they don't always work, and I don't know they're real healthy ways of going about it. Perhaps this will help me develop better ways to cope with my emotions.

So, thank you very much Doc John!

Last night, I had such overwhelming feelings of anger towards everyone. I believe that stress has caused this anger, however this anger dissolved into tears. I did feel better after I had a cry though. But today I still feel like crying I think I'm feeling despair. Does anyone have any advice for me?
