Hi Restless & Floss
I read your honest posts and thought to myself at least there are others like me. Why is it we can't stop our brain from going over and over the dumb things we shoulda and coulda done?
It doesn't change anything. Checking out? No I don't think that is the answer. Why because I still care. Why because I still want to make things better. Why because I still think I can be better.
We don't let those around us see the real person we are. We smile and say ok while inside either you feel so angry or so sad.
Sit in the dark when we are alone and listen to music with tears rolling down. Maybe that is the answer. TURN THE LIGHTS ON.
I don't know if meds are the answer I guess it helps sometimes.
Think about the good things you have done no matter how small.
everything makes a difference.
good luck we are not alone.
