The demons within..

It was a scary feeling…she didn’t want to get out of bed… she didn’t want the day to start…or rather she couldn’t, AGAIN… This feeling was not new to her…

Laying in bed, staring at the was like she was having a free fall. She could not help but think of the time when this sorrow had become her only friend… when it took her years to accept it and more importantly publicly acknowledge her “condition”… Yeah, that’s what they called it.. How she spent days, nights and years grappling with her own demons… the ones that would hide at the faintest sound of another person.. they made it all the more difficult for people to see her pain… “But you look just fine!”, “What’s there for you to worry about?! you have a job, friends and good life!”, they would remark… She was truly alone in this battle..against herself..

When she finally thought that she had won or at least heard the forces retreat, here it was…back again…to immerse her in their dark world, where her voices couldn’t be heard…where once again she would be trapped…But this time, she was better prepared.. she would not let them have her..after all what anti-depressants couldn’t do, her razor blade could!

  2. I hear you….I don’t know if this is personal or not…..BUT…. i totally get it, the things we fight with from within. People are conditioned to only look at the cover of the book and not understand or TRY to understand the content. When I (personally) would try and explain my brain to friends …. I would get….”oh please, look at you. ur stronger than that…ur beautiful, so many ppl love you” & ect…..but never trying to understand the confusion that was felt.
    Thank you for writing this post above …. So many feel alone and we are not!

    You are a kind soul Anisha with a heart that is grand. I have Bipolar Disorder and Depressive Side of it isn’t easy. People don’t care to educate themselves sometimes. My mom used to call me a lazy bum when depressed. I think unless you have it you can’t understand it but we all go through the same emotions Depression is just more intense. I told the Mental Health Specialist to tell the kids with depression to tell the people ‘I am going through a rough time’ everyone gets that and can mean a lot of things.
