I’m sitting here, alone in the near dark. I’m writing this using my cell phone. The feeling that is over burdening is loneliness. Behind that is sadness.
Why I’m feeling this, I don’t know. But its ravaging my mind.
My eyes feel heavy, not sleepy but heavy. My body lacks the want to move. I can hear my heart beating in my chest, why this is I’m unclear..but its becoming an annoyance to me.
My breathing has slowed down, my pulse is steady. I have a million thoughts running through my mind. Things, I shouldn’t be contemplating.
Why me? Why now? Is this some sort of cosmic punishment? So many questions, yet there’s no one to answer them.
Today happens to be a stormy one. It’s 5:30 p.m. and it’s almost dark. The clouds are blocking the sun. The rain is pouring to make a beautiful backdrop, but I’m too down to enjoy nature. It’s cold, but I hardly notice it.
Around this time, I would go talk to my husband, and tell him what’s going on. But, he is busy writing an article, and I don’t wish to disturb him. Yes, I know I should but I’m choosing not to..this time.
Depression is an ugly beast to burden. One does not choose to wear this heavy amour. It’s as if I were chosen at random. I can never preclude when, were, why, or how it comes on.
Luckily, this time I’m not feeling suicidal. I’m mainly feeling sad, lonely, and depressed.
Could my Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.) finally be making its approach?
The days are shorter (less sun), wetter (rain & impending snow), and cold. A recipe for helping to bring on depression.
I’m feeling hungry and muster all the energy I have to cook something. Well, my result is I end-up burning myself because I wasn’t paying enough attention! I burned my food to boot. I chose to substitute for a bowl of cereal instead.
I’m still on that “Why me?”
My house is quiet. Dogs are resting, my son is watching a movie in his room, and I am sitting alone in the dark.
I don’t wish this feeling on anyone! What scares me is I’m left in silence to hear my own thoughts. This is building my anxiety 100%.
As I sit here, I contemplate why it is I’m feeling depressed, sad, and lonely. Frankly, I have no reason. Maybe there is no reasoning to my feelings. But it is real, at least for me at this very moment.
I just don’t want to feel this, I don’t!
For many of you, I know you can relate.
If you’re in what you believe is a crisis moment, don’t hesitate to call a friend, family member, someone! Play with your pets, turn on your therapy light, try writing out your thoughts.
I’m taking my own advice! Trying my damnedest to overcome this moment.
