So, something happened that I don't really want to get into that hurt me pretty badly. It's not like the absolute worst thing that could have happened but it's kind of up there. I've been trying for like a week now to ignore it and not think about it, hoping the negative thoughts and mental images would just go away with time and it seemed to be working at first. It seemed to be decreasing as I kept trying to distract myself. But then yesterday something triggered it again and it just came back full force. I spent most of the day crying about it and wanting something to just numb me. Now, it's kind of better again. I'm not thinking about it as much and I'm not craving drugs anymore (for now, at least)...but I'm afraid I guess that if it came back like that yesterday, what if it happens again? Am I doing something wrong by trying to ignore it? Is it still going to dwell in my subconscious and gnaw at me until I do finally pay attention to it and try to fix it? Or if I keep not thinking about it, is it really going to go away eventually?
