I Think I Am Going Insane

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 571 People

    It has always been there.

    I've been able to ignore it, though. I've been able to push it to the back of my mind - keep it out of sight. But now... it's back. Worse than ever. It was that ******* deer. Biology class - we had to cut open a deer and have a look around in the gore and what not. However...

    I'm not even going to fight it anymore.

    Trying to be normal, it's not going to happen. Nothing about my life is normal, so why should I keep fighting it? Just let it all out and whatever happens happens in my opinion.

    I don't know what's happening,

    but something has changed. I have trouble understanding anything and I feel very confused. It's hard to say when it started to change, but it has gone to the point where I feel extremely insane. I have these extreme shifts of emotion, like I can go from feeling normal to hulking...

    I'm scared. Sometimes I have "kinda sorta
