Home Chronic Pain Welcoming the Non-Welcomed.
Report Post

It seems like forever since I’ve been on this website, and I pity myself for needing to come back, for needing to vent about something that never leaves, the follows me as close as my own shadow.

This feeling, this dreaded feeling is back, and as I try, day by day, to push it to the back of my mind, all it does is grow, feeding off my happiness.

I’m upset, so upset that it seems that all is going well, yet this feeling won’t allow me to feel joy, to feel anything besides remorse. I want to be the one who is always smiling, not just externally, but internally too.

There’s no way to avoid this feeling, no way to diminish it, so I might as well welcome it.

So here I am, welcoming the ending, with shaking arms and a flooded heart.
Maybe when I’m engulfed by this feeling, I won’t feel anything anymore.

It is bittersweet to come back to this website. On one hand this is a great place to vent and find support, but on the other, the reasons for coming back are painful.

In a way you’re being robbed of your life by depression because it’s stealing every precious moment away from you. I feel I’d have a hard time welcoming the feeling because I would feel I’m giving it power, but I can also see there’s no point of trying to keep it out when it’s just going to continue breaking in.

I’m not of much help but I know venting does help get some of the sadness that is inside. So feel free to vent whenever you need to.
