Question hello

Hello.

Ever feel like you have tons of stuff on your mind but can't think about anything. can't talk about it. write about it. nothing. its just there but your not sure "what" is there. *sigh* i wish i could just write what it is i want to write but i dont' know what that is. maybe i'm imagine it and I really have nothing on my mind. i dont' know. i guess i better go to bed. i guess i'm so tired i can't think about anything. maybe thats a good thing thank you.

Oh, now I am thinking of something. Sometimes it seems i WANT to stay depressed. its a comfort zone for me. my counselor told me a while ago that depression can be a comfort zone. i feel my medication working well. i'm not feeling suicidal much if at all anymore. but then i think about being in the real world again. its scary. even being a christian believing in God its scary to be "normal" again to face life, to be strong ...now it seems i dont' want to be ok. i want to be depressed.

well, just some thoughts today.

Re: hello

Mokie, this makes perfect sense to me. The devil you know is better than the devil that you do not know. Change is scary - but you can do it! BTW, good self-understanding there!

Re: hello

I don't know if this will work for you but when I get to that point I just start typing away. I think of something like "doctors" and then focus on them and just start typing. There are times when you reach the end and for whatever reason you do not want to post it you just erase it and it helps lift some of the burden off of your mind. When I was in the hospital my therapist use to give me homework by giving me one word it is actually pretty cool where your mind will take you when it has free reign

take care
