    Just like some of the others, I am not sure what to post here. I just want to say HI. I was looking for a forum where individuals can be themselves and be able to express their feelings about what is bothering. Upon reviewing some of the post, this site seems to be the place.

    How do you express your emotions?

    I can't express mine to other people. Face to face anyway. And the closer they are to me the harder it is. Like, my two brothers, when they have problems, they can call my mom and talk about it. Work problems or need someone to rant to. My younger brother has called her many times crying...
