makes sense, as you are clinging so tightly to something that is making your mind hurt and exhausted.
Hmm, I hope I don’t come across all science like. I do care, I just guessing you picked me to chat to as you were looking for this sort of interaction. I just do what I can.
trying to say I don’t think you are crazy, just your mind is trying to protect it’s self from over stressing. Like a muscle cramp. The challenges you face are real, just got to either put them down somehow for a bit so you can look at them with a bit of perspective. Or just something simple to avoid the well worn mental path that leads to a unhappy place.
Those places are real, but perhaps the night before an exam isn’t the best time to face it.
I am trying to offer advice, but if you know a better way I can help, take the lead and let me know what you want.
Crying releases happy chemicals, and also give a sense of release.
If you need to constantly cry or you feel suicidal, and you are getting exhausted from crying, that’s a tough spot to be in.
just putting in my two cents…
running away is better than death. Animals run away all the time. We are told it’s a terrible thing, but so is a lot of the shit people have to face - stuff not talked about by the same people who are down on running away. I might get in trouble latter for saying this, but running is better than banging your head against a wall till it breaks down.
I think the time to call those lines is when the good people around you are either out of ideas, or out of compassion. They still might love a bunch, but people do get compassion fatigue, but the people on those lines are there to listen.
It frustrated me that it helped, but just talking to someone made me less anxious.
I’d guess you mind is stuck in a loop. Something like “want to get away and relax, can’t get away cause exam tomorrow”
hmm, not really a loop but a straight conflict?
I’d say find 3 numbers, give em a call, and chat to the first one who don’t piss you off :-)
I’m happy to stop ranting and have a listen too if you want, I’ve been known to shut up for whole minutes on end :-)
You’re quite welcome, my friend. I’m glad I met you, too. :)
I’m on a med for the rest of my life. I don’t even think about it really. I’m just so damn grateful to BE alive. And to be better than I was without the med. :) So I take it each day, one day at a time.
The drawback to my med is that it can lead to complications without any warning and death would ensue within 48 hours or so because the situation would be irreversible by the time it’s diagnosed. Know something? I still don’t mind taking the med. I’d rather enjoy every day that I do have so it’s worth the risk to me. :D
It’s all relative. You’re doing great! One day at a time is all you need to do… :)
