I Have Dark Periods In My Life

I Feel the Darkness Swarming Closer 308 People

    Trauma

    I read an article recently by Sigmund Freud. It was about a female who was sick with no medical proof of an existing ailment. She also became phobic of drinking water and she dove in and out of consciousness. Freud used Hypnosis and Talk Therapy to find the source of ...

    Darkness In The Light

    I fall into a darkened state of mind every single month. Consciously, I recognize that these dark times precede my period...my cycle, yet I'm powerless to stop these feelings from commandeering my thoughts, my mood, my emotions, and my behavior. What's strange is that all these...

    My Personal Demons

    Monthly Sometimes

      I can usually feel it coming dark, unavoidable and depressing to weigh my shoulders down yet again for it sometimes happens monthly if I am too overly stressed. It's a dark time, a depressing time and a time when there is nothing right in the world. And most of all it...

           I was 5 years old and I knew that I hated it here on Earth. I had intense desire to leave then, because on some deep level I knew that my life was going to suuuuck. I was right and all my life experiences have been traumatic. I feel that...

    And How!

    They don't happen often... but they do happen! With my tragic background of my life, to expect anything different would be kind of cruel. It's like asking me to not be human, imho. =p My childhood was not a happy one. My father was an abusive crack-addict, for one. We were a...

    Another Struggle

    The more I reveal intimate details about my life to the people I care about, the more they realize that I cannot be helped when I enter dark periods in my life. They try to help and I love them for the effort, but sometimes I need to go through some of these times alone. There...

    I forget how intelligent I can be.

    It's always when I write on paper that it shows. I feel that I adjust to my idiotic surroundings to much and recently it's put me in a dark place

    My Dark Moments

    When I go back and reread my journals from my teenage years, there are three books that even now give me a cold chill when I read them. I don't remember what I was going through at that period of my life, but it was dark and painful. I don't even remember writing some of those...
