Death On My Mind

My blog is the only place I can say what I am really feeling. I have been trying to put up "a front" that everything is OK and I am getting better. Right now death is the only thing that seems to offer a hope of peace. I'm totally hopeless right now. I just can't see things ever being better. I saw my psychiatrist today and he increased my antidepressant. He also wants me to go to IOP (Intensive Out Patient Treatment). They meet daily. He feels I need more support than I am getting. I just don't know if it would do any good. I told him I was "safe" until I got some legal issues taken care of, because I won't leave a mess for my family. I know there are people that live with bipolar, PTSD, eating disorders,self harm, and grief and seem to have normal lives. What is wrong with me?? Why do I continue to sink into this sense of pure hopelessness? No matter how hard I try I just can not pull myself out of this. I hate being like this. I am trying, but it feels like I am just spinning my wheels.

Wanda, I think I know where you are and I want to tell you that you're not alone. Some of those thoughts that you wrote here could have come straight from my mouth. I don't know why some people can live with various disorders and have "normal" lives whereas others have more difficulty. I wish I knew their secret.

But I'm glad you feel comfortable enough to say what you're feeling. I wish I knew you "in real life" so we could comfort each other.

I'm also glad you're safe, at least for now. I worry, and want to see you okay. If you're ever not safe, all you have to do is email me or send me a comment and I will do anything I can to help.

I'm sorry you're feeling so low. (((Wanda)))

Wishing you well,

Wanda, I know it is not easy. I never knew that I could lose control of my own faculties so easily.. I thot I was always unafraid and able to handle any situation. When perimenopause struck, I lost that control. Thus similarly with bipolar many things can happen. On top of that you lost your son, so it is hard. But I am together with all your blogging friends praying for you and like NOS said get in touch if you need someone to talk to. Bless you and take care Hugs.

All I can think to do is pray and tell you I love you whether you are doing well or not.
