As you can see, I have not posted an update regarding my mental health journey in a while. In the last few months it seems, with the help of my therapist, I have delved into, what I think, has been the darkest part of my journey. I know I have said that before, but I was wrong. The darkness surrounds me and I see no light at the end of the tunnel.
There have been some very hard and painful realizations that have come up through my therapy. These realizations have me feeling so broken, unloved, unworthy and very unsure of who I am and where I belong in this world. These realizations have opened a can of 40 years of pain, that I was not allowed to feel or recognize until now. Realization of abuse my entire life, abandonment and my entire belief system of right and wrong is completely questionable now.
The pain is so unbearable at times, that thoughts of suicide enter my head. The thoughts are more often than not lately. My days and nights are currently filled with darkness and I struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel on a daily basis. I'm working through this will my therapist and he is aware of these thoughts. Still very scary. The pain becomes so unbearable that I just do not want to feel anymore, I just want it to stop.
With all of this going on, I just have not been up to doing anything that I use to enjoy doing, including writing my blog. I just wanted to provide this quick update and let you know, I will be back as soon as the light prevails. Will share more details of these horribly, dark part of my mental health journey.
