I feel really awful. I have a headache and am drowning in an unfortunate wave of "I hate myself" thoughts. I have one more class this evening and I really need to go, but I don't know how to pull myself together.

A few years ago I tried working through a book on Zen meditation. I still want to finish going through it someday. One of the early lessons was to put ourselves both in the place of the baby bird and the momma bird - to be very gentle and loving to our baby bird selves, and to accept our momma bird's gentle love as true and right and unconditional. I hope that you are able to hug and rock your baby bird self tonight, and hold tight to your momma bird self. It sounds like it has been a rough day out of the nest.

This imagery helped. I didn't make it to class, but my professor was super understanding and concerned for me. Had therapy today and things are going a bit better. I'm thinking about collecting any nice comments and well wishes I receive to put into a scrapbook to look at when I'm down.

Thank you sweetheart. <3 I'm feeling a bit better now and I appreciate the encouragement.

Glad you're feeling better and that your professor was so understanding. No matter how important it was, if you felt that bad you'd not have gained anything from being there.

I like your scrapbook idea. Remember to put in notes about the things you achieve too, because it can be easy to overlook them; small things that make you proud, doesn't have to be anything huge.
