I am tired. This 23 year old body is exhausted, like a racehorse out of its prime. I fight against the contents of my head permanently. The dark passenger lives to kill me, and I’m running out of strength to say no.

I relapsed again with all the harsh desperation of a junkie. I want to press the blade to my skin so so much each waking moment. I keep thinking about the time I ended up in A and E and I want to inflict worse damage on myself this time. I want to live and I want to die and it is that dichotomy that is tearing my head into messy shreds.

I am beginning to agree with the dark passenger. He knows (yup, we’re back to he tonight) that I am stupid and weak, and he is ‘watching to see that I get it done’- his words.

I’m so tired. Please let me sleep. Please.

    I’m sorry you are going through such a difficult time right now. I hope you quickly realize that you are not stupid and weak. Just the fact that your blogging proves that’s not true.

    I wish I could say something to help. There are no words to describe how scary it is when you’re scared of yourself. I just hope you keep fighting because you’ve been a nice person to me in my short time blogging, and I thank you for that.

    I have been gone, caught in my own hell, but know that I wish for you to find the relief you need. I wish for you to heal. I hate to see you hurting.

    • Scarred, the fact that you’re willing to put aside your pain to comfort me is amazing. I’m so grateful for that, thank you.

        My pain will subside in time. Grief sucks. But that doesn’t mean I can ignore the other people I care and worry about because of it. Life goes on. His pain has ended. Mine will continue for a long while, but eventually, it will pass. In the meantime, I will do what I can to be there for anyone who needs me. If nothing else, it will renew the sense of purpose I lost with his passing.
        Always here for you. Even when I’m gone. Feel better Hun.

      • Clearly you are that rare thing- a true friend. Thank you so much 🙂 it makes me feel a bit better after a hard day flying. I hope the holiday will sort me out. X
