I Feel Numb

    My mom and I got in a fight yesterday.

    I told her that she ruined my excitement over college because she was constantly choosing fights with my dad when we visited the school I want to go to. She lost it. She blamed her failing marriage on me and told my dad she wants a divorce. She hit me and pulled my hair and...

    Life kinda sucks, but its great at the same

    Going Through Motions

    I feel like I'm stuck in some sort of empty place. Where I can't really seem to care too much about anything. Sure. I do feel other emotions but they're all numbed down, to a point where if need be Ican pretty much hide them away. All day, I try to keep busy to do all I can to...

    Can't bring myself to do much of anything now.

    I have flashbacks at night and I hear voices in my head. Something deep within me says I should cut again to feel anything, really… but I can't bring myself to do even that. It's almost like I'm no longer living. Just breathing.

    People say feeling pain is better

    than feeling nothing at all but I disagree. Feeling nothing allows me to think clearly and evaluate my feelings (or lack thereof). And now that I am numb, nothing can hurt me and it'll be easier to forget

    I'm used to people leaving me,

    I feel nothing. I feel numb. I don't know how to feel. I couldn't care less if they're gonna leave me or not. It's their choice. There's no one stopping them if they're gonna leave me. Not even me.

    It's more so the opposite,

    I need to feel. So badly I need to feel. I need to feel the emotions of others, because they are the only emotions that even register anymore. I feel numb to my own emotions, like it's all just a simulation, and nothing I feel is real. I cut today, a rarity for me. No blood...

    I feel numb and dead inside.

    I care, but i don't. I'm sad, but I'm not. I harm myself to feel pain, but come up empty. I turn the water in the shower as hot and cold as it can go, just to feel something. I never do. I feel lost.

    Right now, "normal" seems to be almost beyond

    the point of comprehension. I look at the past and it feels like another lifetime. It seems almost impossible to find hope in a tomorrow because of the things I must face. But I can't give up. I can't die. That wouldn't be right. No... I owe this to myself.

    I feel like life has no meaning.

    I have goals for my life, but they seem impossible to reach. I don't find joy in anything I used to. I sleep for 14 hours a day because I'd rather be sleeping than awake. I need help but I don't know where to find it.

    It's a scary thing to feel numb. Except you don't really feel it you just....are...numb. It's like you flipped a switch to shut off that part of your mind that feels emotion. You try to trigger them, but the tears don't fall, your anger doesn't rage. So what's a person to do when...
