Intrusive thoughts which infect the mind

I have a intrusive thoughts which infect my mind and make it difficult to concentrate. They start the minute I wake up and do not cease until I go back to sleep. I have many hobbies and try to keep my mind occupied but the evil thoughts replay over and over.

When I was physically assaulted over ten years ago I never thought that I would continue to experience flashbacks and trauma from the incident. I have been in fights before and thought it would become another distant memory of something unfortunate. My experience has been completely different and I am stuck in a never ending loop of sorrow and pity.

The attack causes me major mental health issues that I can't move on from. I am stuck in a negative cycle of pain and suffering. The image of the attack repeats in my mind. I see the faceless images of multiple attackers and the fear of reliving the incident is ever present. I am afraid of what's in store for me as I battle to focus on what's important.

It is difficult to describe the incident as it involves anger, betrayal and resentment. The only thing I know for sure is that it leaves me empty and insecure. These people purposefully sought to hurt me and they were successful.

I hate to say it but my mental health has deteriorated to the point where I am miserable. I hate my life and I am aware of the holes I keep digging are damaging me further. I blame my mother and father for a lot of my problems whether it is their fault or not. They did their best but had unrealistic expectations and when I was unable to achieve the impossible goals they had set for me I spiralled in to a deep depression.

This depression has followed me for years and the more I let it control my life - the more pain it causes me. I have never dealt with any of the negative emotions that fill my mind. I bottled everything up and pretended I was fine. I am at the point where I don't see anything improving and I want to hurt the few people I have left.

I really wish I could end on something positive but my life has become a merry go round of pain, sorrow and regret. I hate myself in more ways than one and I need help but the road to recovery is fraught with feelings of guilt and resentment.

EDIT: I am fully aware that my posts are very much a pity party. I am hurting inside and just desperately want to feel better.

I feel so #bad whene I look at myself in the mirror that at times it’s just hard to bear. I have stayed home for too long because of quarantine that now going out just feels weird. I have put on a lot of weight. I have #scar and #Acne . It just doesn’t feel right anymore. I have #BingeEatingDisorder and I suffer from #Anxiety . I just feel like peeling my fat out. I have tried diets and nothing works out. I need to get of this toxic environment. There is so much stress. I stress about gaining weight. I get anxious about the fact that I will remain the same forever. I am ugly. I have a scar on my head. Fat all over and I eat too much. I have tried gyming and i drop it within few days of joining.


Not as crabby in person #recovering #overwork #cramps #scar

I’m a little over a month post-op. A week post biopsy (another body part) I’m still so not at baseline. I feel like I’m fighting through jello to get through the day. My scars kill, my stomach hurts, my whole self is sore.. I have no patience to still be so far off my game(it’s not like on my game is that hot)
