I Am On An Emotional Roller Coaster

    The last two days have been a low

    for me. I don't really have a reason why. But I like to look for one, & that probably just makes it worse. I'll tell you what's making it worse right now: my husband's bad mood. I get scared when he's in a bad mood. I'm scared that it's my fault & he's just not telling me. And I...

    It's like I'm on a roller coaster.

    Sometimes it just goes flat (meaning I feel neutral, or can't tell how I feel). Then, sometimes it lowers and sinks, and at these times, I feel really sad or feel worse. Then, it goes back up to just going on a straight, flat line and I feel neutral again.

    I Dont Know Which Way To Turn

    My heart tugs in different directions. Which way do I trust? I need security, but I long for advancement. I value honesty, but hear plenty of lies. I scream when I need to be held, yet I push when your near. Hmmmmm.... why? Im on an emotional roller coaster.

    I go from being on a super high to feeling

    super depressed. It's exhausting. I find myself wanting that high back, but I have no way of getting it back.

    The ebb and flow of emotions are difficult to

    predict. Some triggers become active after the deed is done. You don't know it until you have the time and space to be fully aware of every part of you. The mind wanders into, what seemed to be, forgotten territory. As a result, this territory transforms into a cage as you try...

    Thanks To The Military

    I am feeling so cynical right now.  In the last hour I've felt angry, disbelieving, anxious, panicky, indignant, frustrated, sad and helpless.  It is the helpless part that gets to me the most.  I am to the point where I don't even want to think about the whole retirement...

    So emotionally invested, so much going on yet on the surface nothing is really happened or happening with you. Girls don't give out yourself to someone who doesn't deserve you.
