Two Steps Back.

I’m sitting in misery with one side of my face doubled in size; pain-killer-free because I am a non-practicing addict these days; in an exceptional amount of radiating pain…
I am angry today;
I am angry because I can’t dissociate and escape this…
I am angry because I am angry that I can’t dissociate…
I am angry about my decision to let people near me – near my life – today…
(This renders me far less able to detach and then isolate myself in order to crawl into the familiarity of the proverbial comfortable default “hole” to deal with things – solo).
Today, I feel notably angry that I have been so unable to foster and maintain anything worth a fuck in my time alive; I feel as if everything I touch disintegrates beneath my fingertips…
I am fearfully responsive today…
I got the wobbles last week and haven’t fully found my way completely out of the fear…
I am feeling unstable at the knees…
Again, I question everything… because all of my ‘hard-earned’ power and control over my own existence was removed temporarily (during the anxiety attack/ the wobbles) to remind me of my subjectivity with a fresh coat of “you are nothing”.
These are the days in which EVERYTHING and ALL OF IT seem to be futile…
Days like today render my spirit: obsolete and out-dated…

Tomorrow’s another day, though, ya’ll.

    Your description of the wobbles helped me feel a lot better today, I’ve had quite a few of those lately, and Monday’s has left me a little shocked/traumatised.

    i hope you are feeling better today – sometimes hiding is the the most comforting thing we can do – mentally and physically, except physically can be taxing, to say the least….my friend Bill used to say to kick myself in the ass – hard – it would take my mind off of any of the pain i was facing or feeling…i am still trying to figure out how to do that, since my knees do not bend in that fashion, but in theory it does sound like a good idea!

  5. So sorry about your pain my friend. Sucks balls & not in a good way. I’m glad you can’t go hide solo though & keep writing. I hope it helps you to get those thoughts out & put them behind you. Sending huge hugs! Xx

    hugs hang in there. we are always something; never, never nothing. i know that feeling, it’s quite the bitch and she fights dirty. but you, you are like me i think, for some of us giving up simply isn’t an option we have. when i get my magic wand i’ll be right over. 😉 for now another hug is the best i can do and it is all yours.

    I am sorry to read about your face and pain. I know the feeling of wanting to but can’t when it comes to easing pain. I will be praying for you and your pain to subside my friend .
