It seems lately everyone has accomplished something. For instance my husband got hired full time at the company he works for witch, do not get me wrong is such a blessing espeacially in these times, and his job is secure. My oldest daughter 22 Graduated from college, witch I am very proud. My son 20 is Graduating from the Air Force in June, and even my 14 year old is graduating 8th grade into High School with honors and is on the advanced team also very proud mom. All exciting stuff ( you would think) and I know I should be expressing all this but I am numb,have no patients for people,a friend of mine came by yesterday to use the computer she is going back to college in September and needed to put in her classes She had said" hey you should take some of these with me" I could not commit could not do it.and hated that fact. It was early morning I figured she be in and out, but noo took advantage while on to do more than had asked and was here until after 2:30 pm, in the mean time I am fuming felt like I could not do what I wanted and when I would, she would start up conversation that I was not into and felt like she was waisting time, no offence to her but I wanted her gone .I then got my daughter off the bus did what I needed to do with her , and she started her home work , so I went to bed and woke up to A good friend of mine with similar problems came by and even though she could understand, I just was not a good host and could not wait for her to leave, I could see how well she was doing and everything she was talking about is what I wanted and could not understand how she was doing it ,"I should be like that by know" I am saying to my self. I have been fantasing the thoughts of me not being here ( I am not going to do anything) but just so tired of working hard on getting better that it takes up all my time, I find it hard to stay in the moment and feel useless, everyones life is going on and I have nothing to show. I just want a little break and feel part of something or successfully accomplish something. Being able to be ready to go to an event is not the BIG accomplishment to me like it is to my family. I want to snap my fingers and poof I am where I want to be in life, back to work or more schooling what ever would give me the drive to feel like somebody, instead of getting an applause for being out of the house , how sad is that for a person? I am OCDing so excuse the long blog I make too many details instead of getting to the point. Is there ever going to be a time when I can mainstream back into society, life, family , friends as just a person not a mentally challanged mess. Do we ever get a break? Am I ever gonna feel as if I will be missed and getting people to not walk on eggshells around me,so lost in whom I am as a person. I have been like this for over twenty years, and a very accomplished woman. Then three years ago was brutally attacked and raped and sent me into Post Tramatic Stress Disorder and all my other ailments flared up to a deep dark place of depression,panick attacks, manic episodes,OCD BiPolar have worked through all that (yes I know thats a great accomplishment) but now that I have the tools and use them almost instincly with out thinking just is not enough I still do not have any clue to my desires and there has to be more than just this in life. I must be here for some reason, but do not know why I am useless. Brenda.
