I am so tired of these ups and downs. in know thats life but im so sick of it all. changes, moving, comparisons, failures, disappointments, rejections, break up, losses.... family problems, sexual identity doubts, loneliness, shame and so on. i have 3 fundamental coping skills that helped me though: self harm, alcohol and pills. i know they are not healthy but they work. and its ok with me. occasionally i use the forums to get a little push to help me through and i hate it but i use binge eating too. i have also found the strenght to try to do something new, different, i have tried to "enjoy" life. maybe as a distraction. i dont know how, i managed to deal with a lot more than i thought i could take these last months. my secret is telling myself: I CAN DEAL WITH ANYTHING. I JUST HAVE TO WAIT FOR IT TO PASS. EVERYTHING PASSES WITH TIME. IF SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENS, ITS GOOD, because it feels good. IF SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS, ITS GOOD, because maybe it will give me the strenght to end it all. this way though whatever i feel should be good and its like i dont allow myself to feel my real feelings. am i making any sense here? right now everything is falling apart. in spite of all my efforts. and im getting closer to sui ideations again. i dont even know why im posting. maybe because im feeling overwhelmed and would like someone to know im not doing good (which should be good, right?). am i crazy? thanks for reading.
