Do something different

I want to cut. I want to cut really a lot. I visualize it. It's like I have a movie projector running in the background. It overlays everything I see. My thigh. Preferably my right. I think this would be a really long section of horizontal slashes. I like making them all the same length and then trying to make a straight row. Deviation from the uniform length is reason to gauge myself harder as I try to straighten the line.

Yes, I know I am bad. I should not have said a word to my niece. I should have shut my worthless whore mouth. I know. I fucking know. I am mean. I am selfish. How dare I share things with people that are not their problem. I'm bad. I know. It's all my fault. I know.

Pot really isn't cutting my anxiety today. Sometimes that happens. It isn't that I am feeling paranoid--I'm fairly careful about my strains. I want to die. That is the only way to not be bad for not being part of my family. I want to bleed and bleed and bleed.

I know I am not good enough to defend or protect. My niece is. I know. I need to shut the fuck up because I don't matter and I never have. I know. I know I fucking know.

I'm past my normal coping methods today. I sent an email to a friend who is a therapist. My therapist is on vacation. Merry Fucking Christmas.

I'm not worried about actually cutting. I've made that a lot harder to do. The tools are not as readily to hand. I don't have privacy and I'm not going to fucking do it where my kids could see. I don't have the body integrity to get away with hiding a large wound. Shanna is absolutely old enough to notice and question.

I'm not worried about going off and killing myself today. I don't want to give them the satisfaction. Fuck them.

But I am going to have a hard time being calm all day. I am going to have a hard time not crying all day. I am going to have a hard time keeping to appropriate topics all day. I know it is because I am bad. Because I don't know how to act right. I'm afraid of teaching my children to be bad like me.

I don't know how to find enough silence to hide in without that magic button on my leg. The other random chronic pain stuff (holy shit my head hurts) is not the same. I have to block that out all the time in order to function. I just do it without thinking about it.

I don't know how to distract myself today. I need to be able to emotionally connect with my children. But I hurt so much. I don't know how to keep being good. I'm not. I'm bad. I'm disgusting. I know.

I should never have told anyone anything. I should have just killed myself and spared everyone the discomfort of knowing anything about my life. Why don't I shut the fuck up.

Because I can't.

It is my fault my dad and my brother are dead. It should have been me instead of them. All of the problems are my fault anyway. Everything was just fine until I showed up. Right? Isn't that the story?

I should probably go run. But I'm worried about my balance. I'm very dizzy. Maybe I'll stretch on the floor.

I don't know how I am going to stop crying.
