Things lately have been pretty hard for me, going to my mom’s house and therefore leaving my dad’s house. My parentes breakup was something that really has affected me, before that I can’t remember a single thing in my life that isn’t perfect. I know my memory may be deceiving me but if it’s how you remember it, being real or not, for you it really happened. Memories can be so deceiving, but I know a perfect life or time doesn’t exist, life isn’t something this easy but I guess if it was there would be no fun in it, right?
Well, my father has depression and when he complains about college with me it really shakes him up and I simply can feel the sadness he feels by seeing his son don’t taking care of his future, he even cries very often when I’m out, he gets pretty bad VERY easily. I know he cares, but… Last year I had to take a medicine because I had some king of paranoia, had fear of things that didn’t exist or are almost impossible, I really believed it could happen anytime and I felt it so often, there was times in which I felt every single day.

About the last one, I don’t know why but for a long time I wanted to kill someone just to know how it would feel, how good it could be to see the terror in their faces, what’s weird is that I didn’t like to hurt people and even thought of it while I was happy, I force myself to think I shouldn’t worry but still it troubles me, could I become some kind of monster someday? I really don’t want to but I’m a little scared of the future, of what’s coming ahead of me, having a low self-steem surely doesn’t help too.
Well, I had to keep this medicine to solve that, specially because my uncle has esquizophrenia, so I have a higher chance of having it, so to avoid having my first hallucination that would start a disease like that (which has no coming back and only gets worse over) I had to solve this problem, the problem is, the medicine really affected me in some terrible ways, I was always down, feeling unable to do anything and not feeling pleasure for anything and I had to endure it for a whole year I only could do it because I also started taking anti-depressants to help my live with the depression I already had for a very long time (since I was 10, I suppose, I get down out of nowhere pretty often), I also started taking a medicine to make me more emotionally stable and a stimulant to help me keep going. At the end of the year I stopped taking the medicine because I simply kept forgetting and realized I got better so I started to reduce the portion I took everyday until I completely stopped. I started getting better after that, but after living hell for a year, yeah it still hurts me and really made my confidente drop a lot, also my mind changed so much and got even darker after that, also during this time I got a little farther to people who are important to me and I seriously obsessed over it and still do it even now even if not in the same degree, I still couldn’t fix everything that I could have broken last year. But I’m gonna try, I tried some times but ended up falling and therefore falling many times, I got up countless times too and for the last month I got really down, but I realized I have always gotten farther each time and if even it was hard it made me feel a lot better, so I will keep moving forward.
Also, I may have lost some people but I ended up finding out those who really care about me, who will stay by my side no matter what, I have so many people that are precious to me, so many things I want to do, to buy, I just can’t forget any of it, my desires, dreams and specially those whose I happen to love.
