    Failure

    I've come to accept that the best part of my life was from about age 12-17. From then on its been nothing but #failure , #Anxiety , #Depression , #SuicidalThoughts , #Bipolar2Disorder and finally a #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder diagnosis. Somehow I found the perfect woman to love me unconditionally, but we had a son together and I've come to realize I never should have had a kid. I love him more than anything, but he's just like me and I have to watch him go through all of this, which is so much worse than going through it myself. I don't know what to do because he refuses any kind of help, just like I used to. I'm in a living hell...

    Exploding anxiety

    I hate that since my default response to my anxiety it to lock it dow. In the last 2 days I've had suck explosive breakdowns of crying, I've burst vessels in my eye. So now one eye is all bloody and looks bad.
    I'm supposed to go spend the holiday with my other son and friends. Last min appointment opened tomorrow so I had to take it. So trying to rearrange transportation. Because things are not working out very smoothly, my brain is telling me to give up and not go. But I hate that I might be letting my older son down if I don't go. So now as I lay in bed and cry and try to stay calm enough to not burst anymore blood vessels....I want give up #AnxietyAttack #failure

    Hopeless

    My husband and I are separated but cohabiting because of the kids and because I need help due to my physical and mental health.
    I have begun to fantasize that he will fall in love with someone who could become our kid’s bonus mom. I am a terrible failure in this area due to my physical and emotional limitations. They deserve so much more than me. This person would take care of them and love them unconditionally. And then I could disappear. #Depression #exhaustion #failure #physicalillness #MentalIllness

    I just need to be in community tonight. Wherever you are and whoever you are. It’s so simple, yet so elusive to me right now. Amidst all the madness and all the repeated failures. Please remind me we are human. And that maybe there is some resemblance of good or hope in me if I am trying to hold on, trying to survive the precipice and slowly make my way back to healing.
