I feel like Im in total darkness most of the time. It is quite a scary place to be. I havent experienced anything like it. While in the darkness, I just sit and stare into space. I dont feel. I dont anything for the longest time. But the longer I stay there the more dangerous it becomes. Its while in total darkness that the tormenting, invasive thoughts come. They are always there; enticing, even seductive in a weird sort of way. They go round and round inside my head. They throw up images that are tempting, those same images that come back time after time. I feel like Im in a whole different world, almost like a parallel one, where I can be in both at the same time. I can be totally aware of whats going on around me but be totally off in this other world at the same time. I can be having a conversation with someone and vivid images of cutting myself or swallowing enough pills to kill myself play like a movie in my mind. The images are becoming less disturbing to me and I almost feel comfortable with them. But I do have something inside of me that continues to put up a fight against them. I just need to say that I am so, so tired. I hardly have any energy at all. This is a lonely place to be too. There are not many people who understand the struggle and I dont want to burden them with it anyway. And once again I write everything is a struggle and most days it would be easier for me to just stay in bed forever. But thats not my destiny. So I refuse to do it. Yes I am tired, exhausted even, totally drained of all energy, but I do have something stronger in me that gives me just enough grace to move forward. This is the stuff I tell myself but honestly I just feel like digging a hole, climbing in it and never coming out. I hate it how I cant be real with everyone and have to put up a front. I feel like Im hiding myself away from the world. I cant even tell mum because she gets so dramatic about everything and I definitely cant cope with that.I try to share most things with my hubby and even he finds it hard enough to cope with. Oh how I look forward to the day when this is all behind me. At the moment it seems to be a long way off.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
