    Soo. I met with Kelly (my new therapist) today. It was our first visit ever..Im feeling good about it.. She asked me to keep a little time line of my behavior and feelings.. What Im feeling, Why Im feeling it ,and What time Im feeling it..She wants to try and get a behavior pattern down for me..So I can see what pattern my ups and downs have.. Has anyone tried this? Is it in any way acurate?

    If you're honest about how you're feeling then there's no reason why this shouldn't be accurate and gives a good indication of how your moods operate eg some people are worse at particular times of the day etc. I say give it a go and see how it is for you! :smile:

    I have noticed I wake up feeling angry and later in the night I almost always feel drained and mentally crappy...
