My own personal little hell

Heylos everyone, I have no idea why i make this thread about my self, maybe its good to get it out in the open i honestly dont know..

My problem is simply im losing control over my self, and recently it has gotten so much out of hand.

Let me start from the begining, i was always a loner up to 7th grade it all actually started in the late kindergarden, i was picked on by quite a few, now iv always had a short temper, wich means there were a lot of fighting going on. When i got into elementary school, it was the older guys who bugged me quite some, my response to this is the same that i had created in kindergarden, if you really mess them up, they will leave you alone. Naturally there were plenty of times were i had several people against me, and got my ass kicked, but with violence i guess it was my own survival tool.

The Stigma of Mental Illness

A woman shares a painful experience with the stigma of mental illness.

Hi! I just have to share this “stigma” story with you. It happened almost 30 years ago. I was around 25 years old and had just spent three months in Western State Hospital [I voluntarily committed myself]. Well, one of the conditions for release was to find an apartment and stuff so I had been out apartment hunting and coming back to the hospital on the bus. During the course of the rather lengthy ride there was a little girl, about 3 or so, with long dark hair and eyes– much like my own daughter. She was driving her mother crazy, so I said why don’t you sit over Read More…

“The Awakening”

I really can’t tell you when my depression began. It was somewhere between here and there…just somewhere. You see, I decided recently that it was time to take a journey. So I did. In the dark of my room, I lay there for what seemed like an eternity; sifting through my mind. Memories, like vivid pictures, began to unfold as I begged for understanding. There were words of love and sorrow; happiness and anguish. Yet it seemed as the days became years and my quest Read More…

Clock Ticks, Nothing Changes

The sweeping hand tick tick ticks, but nothing ever changes.  And you need the time to pass.  Not because you have anywhere to be; you don’t. You never have anywhere to be.  You just need the time to be anywhere but now, here.  Tick tick tick.  You imagine curling in a snow bank for a nap you never wake from.

The left side of your brain maintains the tickety tickety tacks of the keyboard while the right side of your brain, the creative side, reels and spins on your only remaining choices: which way to end your life that evening when you’re back at home.
