User Topic: When do you journal

So one of the major hurdles in my healing is that I really need to journal, to get everything out of me that I am bottling up.

I don't really like to journal before I go to bed. I like relax, read etc. I would not be in frame of mind for sleep.

But if I do it during the day, its going to ruin my day, and my face. And during the evening I am involved with DS(16) and I don't want him to see me upset.

How do you all handle journaling?

I just journal when I need to get something off my chest...which was a lot more a few months ago. I find it therapeutic and actually helped me get some tears out and relax and not think as much after.

Mine seems to come out in the morning, very early, pre-coffee time.

I do my journal right before bed. It gives me a chance to think over the day and how it effected me, mentally/emotionally/physically.It kind of gives me a breath of fresh air, and I am able to sleep better! If you found a journal or book of some sort, that fit in your purse, or something similar, you could just grab it and write whenever you felt the need. I am simply using a $.19 wide rule notebook that I bought on sell in the school supplies!

Early on, it was whenever I needed to. Some days it was several times a day. I find writing very cathartic.

Nowadays, I "write" a lot of blog posts in my head as I'm commuting to and from work, they just don't actually make it to my blog. I do try to blog/journal on the weekend though, when I have more time.

I journal when I am pissed. Or when I need to sort something out in my head. In the few years after dday that was almost every day. Now it is every couple of months.
