INSIDE OF MY DEPRESSED BRAIN

It's hard to explain the depths of depression to someone who has never experienced it. It's like a dark, heavy cloud that follows me everywhere I go. It's a constant weight on my chest that never seems to lift, no matter how hard I try. Every day feels like a battle. It takes all my energy just to get out of bed, to put on a facade of normalcy and face the world. But inside, I am consumed by a never-ending cycle of negative thoughts and emotions. I feel worthless, like I am a burden on those around me. I see no purpose in my existence, and it feels like the world would be better off without me. Simple tasks like brushing my teeth or making a meal feel insurmountable, and I constantly berate myself for being unable to accomplish even the smallest things. I am constantly tired, yet sleep eludes me. The worst part is the feeling of isolation. Despite being surrounded by people, I feel utterly alone in my pain. It's like I'm trapped in a dark room with no windows, and no matter how much I scream, no one can hear me. I long for a way out of this pain, but it seems impossible. I am exhausted from fighting every day, and it feels like there is no end in sight. I know that there are people who care for me, who want to help me, but it's hard to believe that they can truly understand the depths of my pain. I feel like I am drowning, and there is no lifeline to save me. If you know someone who is struggling with depression, please don't underestimate the power of your presence and support. It could mean the difference between life and death.

Impediment

Yes, our collective unconsciousness i.e. our shadow can't be imprisoned in a narrow shell. The more we deprive and shake off our dark sides the more these unconscious desires attempt to float on the surface of consciousness which culminate into intangible and occult nightmares and haunt us forever.

ENVY OF NORMAL BRAIN

As I sit here, watching the people around me go about their day, I am struck by a sense of frustration and sadness. These so-called "neurotypicals" seem to go through life with such ease, never having to face the struggles and pain that come with mental illness. They don't understand what it's like to wake up every day with a brain that feels like it's moving at a million miles an hour, constantly bombarding you with thoughts and distractions. They can't comprehend the overwhelming sense of sadness and hopelessness that comes with major depressive disorder, or the crippling anxiety that accompanies generalized anxiety disorder. And when it comes to conditions like obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and complex trauma, they are completely clueless. They think it's just a matter of "mind over matter," that you should just be able to "get over it" or "move on." But they don't understand the deep-rooted pain and trauma that can linger for years, even decades, after a traumatic event. And then there are the conditions that affect communication and language, like progressive aphasia and dyslexia. They can't comprehend the frustration and isolation that comes with struggling to express yourself, to make yourself understood, or to even read and comprehend written language. It's not that they don't care, or that they're intentionally dismissive or insensitive. It's just that they can't relate to the experiences of those with mental illness or communication disorders. They haven't lived it, they haven't felt it, and so they can't truly understand it. And that's what makes it so hard for those of us who struggle with these conditions. We feel like we're speaking a different language, that our pain and suffering are invisible to those around us. We wish they could understand, could see the depth of our struggles and the courage it takes to keep going. But until they do, we will continue to feel like outsiders in a world that doesn't quite fit us. We will keep fighting, keep trying to find ways to cope and connect with others who understand. And maybe, just maybe, one day the world will become a little more accepting, a little more understanding, of those who struggle with mental illness and communication disorders.

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.

You don’t need attention

Before seeking approval from likes on multiple people, posting stuff just to get likes or compliments from someone else. Find the fullness in yourself and understand that an internal void cannot be filled with something external.

STORY OF MY LIFE WITH CPTSD

I can feel the weight of my trauma pressing down on me like a boulder, crushing me under its unbearable weight. My PTSD is a constant reminder of the events that have brought me here, to this place of endless pain and suffering. I still hear the screams of my relatives as they took their last breaths, their faces twisted in agony. The memories of their deaths haunt me every moment of every day, and I can never escape them. The hospital is a place of terror for me, a place where I have spent countless hours watching family members struggle for their lives, never knowing if they would make it through. And then there was the fire, the inferno that destroyed everything I had ever known. I can still feel the heat on my skin, hear the crackling of flames as they devoured everything in their path. The trauma of that night has left me with nightmares that I can never seem to shake, even in my waking hours. My childhood was no refuge from the pain. My stepfather was a monster, a cruel and abusive man who seemed to take pleasure in causing me pain. His beatings left me bruised and battered, but it was the emotional scars that cut the deepest. I never felt safe or loved, and that sense of worthlessness has stayed with me to this day. And then there was the relationship, the four years of abuse that left me broken and shattered. The physical violence was bad enough, but it was the emotional manipulation that hurt the most. I was never allowed to be myself, never allowed to have my own thoughts or feelings. I was trapped in a world of pain and fear, and I thought I would never escape. Now, even in moments of relative peace, my PTSD is always there, lurking just beneath the surface. It colors everything I do, every decision I make. I can never fully escape the pain, the fear, the horror of my past. All I can do is try to survive, to make it through one day at a time, and hope that someday, somehow, the pain will lessen.

Gamble

There are some things that no one can save you from but yourself. But if you look around, there are probably some people who recognized that they couldn't save you, but they have been waiting around with hot cocoa and blankets to help in your recovery. I know we all know this, but I felt like someone might need to hear it today. It's a gamble, I know, but the odds are in my favor. And I like betting on the underdog. Have a great day.

MY ADHD BRAIN

As I sit in front of my computer, I can feel my mind racing a million miles a minute. It's as if my thoughts are constantly bouncing around like a pinball machine, never settling on any one thing for too long. I try to focus on the task at hand, but my attention keeps getting pulled in different directions. I'll start working on something, only to be distracted by a notification or a passing thought, and suddenly I'm down a rabbit hole of tangential ideas. It's not just a matter of being easily distracted, though. It's like my brain is working against me, actively sabotaging my ability to complete even the simplest of tasks. I'll make lists and set reminders, but somehow I still manage to forget things and miss deadlines. And then there's the constant restlessness, the fidgeting and the need to move. I'll try to sit still and focus, but before I know it, I'm tapping my foot or drumming my fingers, unable to sit in one place for too long. It's exhausting, always feeling like I'm fighting against my own mind. And the worst part is the shame and guilt that comes with it. I know I should be able to control my thoughts and behavior, but I just can't seem to do it. I feel like a failure, like I'm not living up to my full potential. And the more I beat myself up over it, the worse my symptoms seem to get. It's a vicious cycle that I feel trapped in, with no way out. I wish I could just shut off my brain and find some peace. But instead, I'm left with this constant chaos and a sense of never being good enough. It's a painful way to live, but for now, it's all I know.

SITUATIONSHIP

It's hard to explain how much pain and confusion being in a situationship has caused me. I crave stability and commitment, but instead, I find myself stuck in a never-ending cycle of uncertainty and ambiguity. Every time I think I'm making progress, something happens that throws everything off balance. One minute, we're laughing and joking like old friends, and the next, we're locked in a passionate embrace. It's like we're in a constant state of limbo, never quite sure where we stand with each other. And the worst part is, I can't seem to let go. Even though I know deep down that this isn't what I want, I can't help but hold on to the hope that maybe, just maybe, things will eventually work out. But the more I try to make sense of our situationship, the more confused and frustrated I become. Living with this constant state of uncertainty is like a never-ending emotional rollercoaster. I feel like I'm constantly on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop, for something to shatter the illusion of happiness that we've created. And even when we do manage to find some sense of stability, I'm always wondering if it's just temporary, if it's all just a façade. The pain and confusion that come with being in a situationship are almost unbearable at times. It's like I'm trapped in a prison of my own making, unable to break free from the cycle of uncertainty and unfulfilled desires. But I know that I need to find the strength to let go, to move on and find someone who can offer me the stability and commitment that I crave. It's just easier said than done, and the road ahead feels impossibly long and painful.
