The cycle of overwhelm. 

To say I’d been emotional this week would be a huge understatement. Usually my medication makes me find it fairly hard to cry, but I seem to have turned into a physical embodiment of the song cry me a river. Graduation is approaching, and with  that comes a lot of feelings. It’s definitely an exciting time, but I want to enjoy my last days of student classes and time with the people I’ve really bonded with over the last years.  I think that some people have gotten  too big for their boots, and others would leave today if they could, and so there is an air of “fuck this” in the atmosphere. In a girl dominated environment, the bitchiness has reached a high and I’m utterly sick of feeling that who I am isn’t good enough for those around me. 

If I were a more confident person, I think I would have handled some disagreements and bitching this week in a way that didn’t destroy my sanity so much, but unfortunately I’m not in that place yet. Anything that has upset someone else has caused me such extreme inner pain that thoughts of suicide have been really prominent. 

I’m typing as I’m sat on a train going home to see my family. There’s only so many times a girl can call her Mum crying before you just need a hug, right? So this weekend is going to be about me. Fuck everyone else for a brief moment in time, and let’s have time with my mummy and my animals.  

I’ve been trapped in the cycle of feeling overwhelmed, being hysterical and crying, feeling guilty, then wanting to do something self destructing, and by the time that’s done, something else overwhelming has come along. It’s exhausting and I’m done with it. I’m also quietly anxious about waiting for a response from my dietitian, because I messaged her about how I’m feeling re wanting to lose weight and simultaneously recover. I know it’s dumb, but I need someone else to tell me it. No reply as yet, so I hope I didn’t make her mad.

Hope everyone is doing ok. Well done to anyone who made it to the end of the massive rant. 😂 xoxox

  1. Ah! I really relate to the feeling of ‘crying a river’ sometime sour emotions just come out all at once as if they’ve been accumulating for so long and just couldn’t stay in any longer! I guess it’s hard to see it when we are experiencing this phase but it is human nature to feel these emotions and I guess all we can do is accept them when they come and endure them until they finally leave (because they will!) Also, I really relate to the feeling of wanting to recover at the same time as wanting to lose weight! It’s such a hard battle but definitely one that can be won! (in the recovery way I mean). I hope your dietician replies soon so you can get some expert help! Wish you all the best x

    • Thanks for commenting! Nice to know I’m not alone in all these emotions! You are so right that everyone has these times of overwhelming feelings, and everyone experiences these things differently.
      I hope I get a reply from her soon!
      Have a great weekend xx
