TW I just want to disappear

I don’t need to talk about how, what, when and why.

If I was actually going to I wouldn’t be posting here & wouldn’t be saying anything to anyone. 

That alone is frustrating, continuing with sadness, fear, paranoia, what my heart feels my mind thinks different, both conflicting, both fighting and it all leads me to the same question... why?!

Why did I survive?
Why am I here?
Why is everything over-facing and such a battle? 
Why do people expect you to be strong?
Why do people bother?
Why do I feel like I’m in a bottomless pit?

I feel like I was dead and empty inside when I was abused/rape and before that, I had to leave a part of me to car for my daughter, but the rest.. I don’t have the energy

    Thank you for sharing how you feel Natalie, not always easy. I can hear you're struggling. :(I Dont see you like that. I see you as brave and very well self aware which does seem bit opposite of that. 

    How can we support you on here?
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Hey Natalie,

    I just wanted to check in, and ask how you've been feeling since you posted this, if you'd like to talk about it?

    It must be really hard to feel this way :( We're all here for you.

    Sending love and hugs,
    Kathleen <3

    Hey @NatalieMT

    I just wanted to send you a hug as well. We're all here for you anytime you want to talk. Keeping fighting <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Sorry, I haven’t come back sooner, have no words, everything is stuck or lost, it’s all internal. Heads full of just everything! 

    I spoke to someone on crisis messenger at approximately 2-3am this morning, I woke up and saw my messages open on my phone, been having flashbacks of the same thing for weeks now, I’d taken diazepam and spoke to someone there, not remembering much of what I said at the time, read back and I fell asleep during the conversation so managed to tire self back to sleep, that’s just what’s happening right now. Been in a trance today, took little one swimming class, barely remember that. 

    Im just not in control of my thoughts when I’m usually know them, I can’t express them.

    sorry and thank you 

    Natalie 💕
