A shared problem is a halved problem, I always learned. It's good to get your worries of your chest, but than it doesn't mean that they have been resolved. However it is good to know that you are not the only one who is experiencing a curtain issue. Talking with peers can give you a idea's on what you can do. It can also give you a sense of belonging.
There is never just one factor that will solve the problem or make the pain go away. It is a cluster of things, some of them are small things and some of them are major, like therapy. But you shouldn't under estimate the so called smaller factors. This could be poetry, music, painting, creative writing and talking and sharing with peers. I for example wrote my autobiography. The work was 60,000 words in total and when it was finally in the correct order, it was a big mess at first, my mind was in a similar state.
What happened was that during the process of writing I been able to move forward had taken a huge step towards my recovery.
A similar result can be reached in groups, one can either have discussions or do any form of art and later discus the work.
However research have shown that some people prefer to go on line to share their problems, whether this is as effective as face to face group contact is questionable.
