I Cannot Handle My Emotions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 52 People

    Holy Moly

    Emotions are becoming too much to handle. I recently found my birth mother online and cannot reach her, I feel like I've hit a wall at 500mph. I don't know if I want to cry, or be happy... this is not a new feeling.

    I've Broken A Lot Of Stuff.....

    When I'm upset it's like everything's foggy and it's so loud even if I'm alone. I can't think straight nothing works. So I end up trashing my room or kicking a hole in the wall or breaking a window. I get very violent. But I'm getting help for it now.

    Just Take 'em Away

    I really want to take those meds that numb out all of your feelings. I don't want to even be happy. I just want to be able to function with the breakdowns or the crying or the suicidal thoughts. I just want to stop being so sensitive and emotionally unstable.

    Me

    For some reason I feel emotions on a really strong level. It gets so hard to handle. And when I try to deal I either get a headache or I can't breathe. Noone I know understands. And it's starting to feel like I'm just drowning every time I feel an emotion or a combination of...
