Feeling Confused…

I woke up today with a sense of confusion, followed by a sense of panic.

It’s not a new experience for me, but it is one that I find to be….hmmmm….frustrating, because it almost feels like my mind is deteriorating or something.  I have been working a lot this past week and I’m sure I am dealing with some sleep deprivation and that is compounding the problems I feel and experience.

I look at my life and I am wholly frustrated with so many things. I’m feeling a constant need to change things and the attempts I’m making do not seem to matter. I can feel, taste, see what it is I want, but it doesn’t feel like I can ever get there – wherever there is. And today, when I woke, I felt confused about my life.

I felt confused, because I don’t have the answers to fix everything. But I feel an impending doom like a bad omen that never goes away. And then a sense of a rushed need to do something set in – a panic. An overwhelming sense of fighting to survive.

My old friend anxiety.

And the feeling went away leaving me that other feeling of depression.

And I have never felt so much like sitting in a bar and drinking until it all left.  But I know it won’t go away. I know there is nothing that will change how I feel unless my life changes.

I need a change so bad. I need something to make me feel good.

I listen to others…this is all supposed to come from within. It’s all supposed to be self-generated, but I don’t know how to do it anymore. I can’t seem to achieve that sense of pleasure on life that I used to feel so readily when life used to make sense.

All I know is that I can’t drink enough. I can’t eat enough. Hell, I can’t even masturbate enough to make myself feel good.

That’s all I want is to feel good. I want a job that gives me the chance to get caught up on all of my financial problems. I want to feel like I have the time to enjoy life. I want to feel like I have the time to take care of myself. And I want to be able to feel like someone loves me. I want to be able to understand that feeling.

I feel so detached.

I feel confused.

And I feel like all of my thoughts are just a complete mess right now.

And I hate it. Gawd I hate it.

  1. My own anxiety can derail me.
    Magnesium, GABA and Epsom salt baths help a lot. Apparently chocolate helps too. I also take medication daily.
    It’s tough. I’m sorry you are struggling,
