A little reminder for us all…

Be the best you, you can be.

flashback trauma

flashbacks are kicking our collective ass. horrific memories are running rampant. taunting us. making us crazy. sending us spiraling. triggering us into a place of emotional instability.

Right now, I feel awful. I want an end to this pain. An end is all I want.

But it never ends. The pain threatens to take me down. If only the memories would stop?

POEM

I AM LONELY
I AM BLUE
I FEEL SAD
EVERYTHING FEELS UNTRUE
I FEEL OLD
I FEEL DEAD
I SPEND WAY TOO MUCH TIME INSIDE MY HEAD
ITS DARK
ITS GREY
I DONT LIKE LIVING HERE
BUT I DO IT EVERY DAY
WHEN WILL MY THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS GET OUT
WHEN WILL THEY FINALLY BE ABLE TO BE
WHEN CAN I
FINALLY BE SET FREE?

i am scared

its alicia. and i am scared. i dont like night time. i hate the dark. when its night time i start to think about stuff. bad stuff. like what if someone broke in to our house. or what if bad people are outside. or what if i have nightmares. i hate it. i am not on my own tonight. we are at our parents house still. but they are asleep in bed. i cant wake them up if i need to. that would be wrong. plus they dont know me. or see me. so i am alone. its lonely.

alone lonely and sad

my eyes hurt from crying. i cant even remember any more why i started to cry. i think it was a build up of a lot of things. i need a hug but cant ask anyone. its too early to text or call my therapist. i’m at my parents and mom is awake and up but she’d never hug me. i cant remember the last time she hugged me. it wasnt recently. i feel incredibly sad and alone and just so on my own. at least i have nitro, he knows i’m not ok because he keeps coming over by the bed and nuzzling my arm. i just realised too that i am actually hungry. maybe if i eat something i will feel better. maybe i’ll go make some toast. it feels like its gonna be an awfully long day.
