I Cannot Handle My Emotions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 50 People

    I bottle up my negativity in most cases usually

    because I am unable to let them out without regret, and loss of control.. Think of this for me it is a pressured volcano waiting to top it's cap, and when it does everything is burned away, and nothing seems to come back for days even weeks. The thing is is can be unbearable...

    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.

    Bottle

    I imagine my heart, my mind, as a bottle. All my thoughts and emotions are put in. The worse, the bigger. But I shove them in anyways. I don't know how to handle them, so I hide them away. Then, once in a while, my bottle cracks. It cracks and explodes. I break down,everything...

    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.

    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.

    I really miss my friend. He's the only one who ever could fully understand my emotions because he's experienced them himself. And it just sucks and everything sucks.

    When you're only 17 seems that you cannot do much to change things around you, so you just have to accept them. And sometimes it's so hard to deal with that!
