I’m back. Sort of. I can’t sleep. I’m nervous. My mind is too busy drifting away from me. I got a new tattoo. I’ll do a post about it.
Firstly, I think it’s really weird that some of the suggestions on the Part 1 were already on my list! We are like minded fucked up people!!
Now, if you didn’t read my first list, here is the summary of why I’m doing this series:
Maybe you’re like me-laying in bed. Hurts too much to open your eyes. Missing a piece of your chest. In the center. There’s a void. And next to it is your heart that’s now exposed to the world and it aches and feels cold from the air. No one is around to notice as you fall apart. Where the missing piece is, the void, is the charred edge and pain radiates outwards within your body. All the way to your fingertips. Up to your shoulders. Down to your pelvis. And you can’t move too quickly, because the depression and anxiety consumes you.
If I can, I try to turn on some music. I usually listen to spa music to fall asleep. But, occasionally that doesn’t work.
These are some songs of artists that help me during the times when I’m laying in bed and experiencing the overwhelming sensation of emptiness and jitteriness and pain from emotional or physical problems.
They make me feel less crazy. More grounded and centered.
Maybe they will help you.
All my love and xoxo,
