    So lost. Where do I go from here?

    Nothing in my life gives me happiness anymore. I’m completely numb. I can’t feel anything. And when I do? It’s only ever temporary. Sometimes I feel it would better to just disappear. Most of the time I want to. But I know what that would do to my parents. They...

    The long answer is I don’t know.

    I’ve let myself chug along, and now it’s time to choose a different path. Admitting that makes it real. I’m telling the world I don’t have it all together, that I’m uncomfortable and vulnerable. But I’m also telling the world that I value myself, my life, enough to...

    I still carry the guilt

    that I hurt so many people. Physically and emotionally. A long and winding path of destruction lies behind me. No amount of therapy will ever erase that.

    I'm angry at myself and I hate myself.

    And I am feeling totally lost. Have felt it all my life. I'm too afraid of living and too afraid of dying (by suicide). I'm stuck and feeling lost. I feel adrift and I can't find any light to guide me to shore. 40 + yrs I've been adrift. I'm so alone! Suffering is no existence...
