Hey Racer,

If you have any artistic talent, you might try messing around with paints or something. I find that sometimes I can touch my feelings gently when I paint or draw (or even just cut up magazines and make collages), even when it's too scary to think about them with words. But, I guess, that's still likely to let that monster catch up to you in some form, so maybe that's not a helpful suggestion. I'm just trying to think of how you can face the monster without actually letting it all the way out. So that maybe you can stop diverting yourself away from it, and let it come in a more healthy, controlled way than with a big depression or anxious, nonstop cleaning (which, by the way, I can also relate to).

Like, I'm thinking maybe make a collage of all the monster-like pictures you can find, or cut out pictures of things you don't like, and glue them together into a monster. I know it sounds like kid stuff, but I think there's some right brain - left brain thing going on with creative things like that, which can sometimes help us deal without talking.

I'm with you on the chocolate. Have you read Harry Potter? Chocolate is how they recover from encountering a dementor (kind of like a crushing depression). If only it worked that way.
