i was watching, listening to what all of them put in their notes, thinking about how familiar it sounds. then it got to the 'dear suicidal me' section. i thought what if when im feeling good i write that down so that when im feeling bad i can read and remember that i did honestly feel that way. and then i wondered, yes but just like when im feeling good and i believe it, i feel just as strongly the other way. why dont i also write down what im feeling when im not ok. which led to the conclusion of, why dont i write notes back and forth between the 2 different frames of mind. maybe i can figure something out.

anyway thats my stupid thought, maybe it will help someone else out :)

Strangely, I've tried this and it actually works. Write a question to yourself and then see who answers and so on.

It's worthwhile even just to try, as it essentially means you're giving permission for the disparate/disconnected parts of your self to communicate and maybe connect, in theory at least.

Edit: you might need the help of intermediaries and/or advocates in order to get communication between parts that can't or don't want to talk to one another for whatever reason. Still worth trying though.

It sounds like a really good idea. When things get bleak, it can be difficult to gauge where normal is.
