Am new here but I hv been to the chatroom n found much support. Been battling abt posting cos am not used to opening up, maybe cos in the real world most of what I feel has been either dismissed or unvalidated. Since then I hv turned inward n silent. But things hv been overwhelming over time n I find myself backed into a corner.
I hv been crying over the smallest things n everything seems to magnify by the hundredfold. My head's all over the place n focussing on one thing seems hard. I am on psy meds yet I feel overwhelmed. Everything seem to pour in like a broken dam n old skeletons hv emerged. I dont know which way to turn n am losing control over everything including my health. It's gotten me to believe that I hv become not only a lesser a person physically but emotionally as well. It's become obvious to the ones around me that I am not the person I used to be - a strong person n a pillar.They hv expressed it to me that they cant accept me being 'weaker' compared to who I used to be n that hurts. It leaves me to think that I am not 'allowed' to fall apart n that I am only human going thru life as they are. I hv given up trying to make them understand what I am going thru cos they would either dismiss it or tell me to 'get over it' or 'stop feeling sorry for myself'. I am not here to get any sympathy from anyone, I just want to be heard. I feel so alone n my world is caving in on me.
Thanks for letting me vent n ramble on.
jus me,

Hi Blu

I too would like to welcome you to Healingwell. There are lots of poeple here with different experiences. I think most will be able to understand where you are coming from and how you are feeling at the moment. We dont mind people venting at all. Its better out than in, and sometimes people can help by making suggestions or even just listening.

Like Shy, I am curioius as to whether you are in councelling / talk therapy at the moment? It sounds like you could benifit from it greatly.

Feel free to vent any time



Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
