Burnt. Broken. Failing. Falling. Help. Destroyed. Empty. Scared. Scared to drop again. This is probably when I’m supposed to call my psychiatrist or psychologist and ask for help. But that scares me too. That is weakness, and I am already so weak. Fragile. Crumbling into nothing. It was nothing. Such a little thing to tip me over and push me down. There is so little left of me, that I can’t cope with anything. I feel pathetic, useless and incompetent. I can’t move from my computer because I am at work and the tears won’t stop rolling down my cheeks and I am terrified that someone will see and ask what is wrong. There is nothing wrong, except me. Except my useless, broken mind that can’t hold on to any positive emotions but relishes the misery and pain. It is so much harder after a moment of normality. Last night I felt enjoyment, I forgot my mind and let myself go on stage. But it was so brief, such a small moment of joy and to lose that again and find myself back at the bottom of the well is so unbelievably painful. There is laughter outside my room and I am so disconnected, so alone. Trapped. The last moment of joy was on the 7th July, 11 weeks ago. So I couldn’t help but hope that maybe things were improving when I felt enjoyment for the first time in nearly 3 months. It is so disheartening and soul destroying to realise that things are not improving. That things will never improve. Hopeless. I know that is the dangerous place. I know I need to hold on with all my might to some sliver of hope, but I don’t know how. I will fight, I will fight, I will fight. I will breathe, if I can manage nothing else I will fight to breathe. I can feel my hope, my strength, my will being sucked out of me into the black hole. I try and think a positive thought and see it swallowed by the darkness before it is able to register at all. Please forgive me for my weakness, forgive me for my stubbornness, forgive me if I can fight no longer. I am teetering on the edge of ambivalence, so unsure if I should show this to someone. If I tell my husband then I will be watched and probably be kept safe. If I tell the health professionals I may find my options even more restricted. But I am unsure, so unsure. I do not know if I want to be kept safe. I do not know yet which way I will fall from this knife’s edge I walk today. I do not know if I will find myself tomorrow wanting to live or wanting so desperately to die. I suppose more likely this ambivalence will persist and I will stay stuck in limbo unable to die but hardly living either. But I purchased the means today. I should tell someone that, but then what was the point of buying it.
