Back in the void 

I’m back in the void, stating at the ugly truth that is both my reflection in the mirror and my future.  I take one step forward, only to be pushed two steps back. I won’t get to talk to another human being until Wednesday next week, which is an eternity as far as my sanity is concerned.

Perhaps I should avoid social media, but it’s my only connection with the outside world.  Most people ignore me anyway, almost as much as they do in real life.

I can’t stand my own company, stuck in this room being tormented by an endless barrage of destructive thoughts and painful memories.  I can’t be alone; because it causes so much damage.  Because of social isolation, I’ve become a total nervous wreck around people in general.  I can’t hide my anxiety anymore, so I retreat whenever people I don’t know get close to me. Living in a motel is a nightmare, in that sense.  I feel like I’m in danger every time I leave my room. I jump when the phone rings or if there’s a knock on the door.  Never before have I felt so afraid or so alone. The world looks like a very scary and hostile place through my eyes.

  1. I have seen depression and anxiety become true mental breakdowns in the psych ward. And I have experienced long stretches of time home alone and walked the line between cabin fever and seclusion. In my experience…getting out is one of the best possible solutions.

    1. Getting out is vital. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to do it yesterday and it’s unlikely to happen today or tomorrow as it’s the weekend. Thank you though.
