I Cannot Handle My Emotions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 54 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.
