All on her own. Ok. I've suggested it for *years*, but she started doing it of her own accord (see...they do hear us sometimes ). I didn't know until last night. She sent me her recent journal entry from last night via email. She expresses herself so well. I'm really impressed. Of course, it's not the best of stuff that I want to hear...it's a bit heart-breaking...but she's getting it out. She's quite articulate. She also told me she plans on printing them out and taking them to therapy. In addition, she's been keeping an art journal. I'm really proud of her. She's taking an active interest in her mental health. Finally.
