Exclamation Crazy ramblings <3 sorry... - January 22nd 2023, 01:33 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Heeeey. I'm writing this kinda late at night. I haven't been on here much, mostly due to paranoia that somebody'll see these vents and send me to the hospital lol. But I wanted to vent a bit... this is *supposed* to be my safe space, and so I probably shouldn't feel ashamed to ramble and vent, but I kinda do lol.
Anyways, I've been trying to figure out stuff. The last few months, I've made a few realizations (i.e., that my constant "sadness" was really a mix of other emotions, that I really don't have a reason to be acting like this, etc.)
I remember before my last hospital visit, I repeatedly told myself I was a terrible person. My parents had said something along those lines, and I took it a different way than they had intended.
I feel as though I'm in a good spot. Me and my parents haven't argued *as much*, I have my own room, I'm on my way to getting my own phone, I have a gf, etc.
Yet, there's this nagging feeling. It's almost like l'appel du vide (call of the void... the little voice that tells you to do... certain things...when you're like standing above a ledge, or driving near traffic...)
I want to follow that call. Not because I don't want to be here (though, a part of me doesn't), but because I want to test my limits. It's hard to explain without sounding crazy, but I'm very sure I'm immortal, or at least somewhat immortal. I'm so sure of this that I would be willing to attempt it -again-. I mean, last time I attempted, NOTHING happened to me. And if I tried again, either I live (thus proving my point), or I don't.
It truly doesn't matter to me, as I feel so miniscule in the true scale of things. I feel like a god, yet I feel so small. Of course, this mindset of mine varies a bit. I'll go from thinking I'm a god, to thinking I'm a mistake. An anomaly.
I know this probably sounds like a delusion; I've been watching psychology videos, but it's something I realized I've kinda believed for a while. I don't know how to stop believing it, and I realize I literally have 0 regard for my physical wellbeing. This feeling of impulsiveness and wrecklessness is constantly there, whether I'm happy, sad, angry, disgusted, hyper, or whatever else it might be.
This probably seems like a total 180 from my previous posts, and I'm sorry about that. I've been trying to figure things out about myself, and I really only type what's on my mind in those exact moments.
I have 4, technically 3 plans. I feel as though I may act on them soon, though I'm not sure when. Whenever the feeling is strong enough, I suppose.

Does anyody know what this is called? My mindset, I mean.
Sorry for my incoherant ramblings...

Definitely don't feel ashamed for venting! You're right that this is a safe space where nobody is going to judge you. You can post as much as you want about almost anything. I'm not sure the name of the mindset you're in, I'm sorry about that.
It's great that you're starting to be more in tune with your emotions and are learning that there is more than just sadness there. I think that becoming more aware of your emotions is one way to learn more about yourself and come up with solutions and coping mechanisms that are specific to the specific emotion.
It's also so great that things are looking better for you right now. Having your own room, making progress towards your own phone, and less arguing are all great things! I'm happy that you're at least in a bit of a better place right now.
There is comfort in the sadness and comfort in the things we are used to. It may be part of what is drawing you back to some of the old habits and the thoughts of attempting.
Remember that even though your mind tells you one thing, every situation is different. There may have been no permanent damage the last times, but eventually it does start to add up and take a toll on your body. I don't know what your method of attempt was and due to our site rules you can't share, but the permanent damage can become serious. For example, certain methods can lead to needing to be on dialysis or having permanent liver problems, and I know you don't want that. And we definitely don't want you to die here. We want to see you thriving and living your best life.
But I would try to remove the methods you have to any extent possible. For example, put them into a safe so they are harder to access, or put them somewhere where you'd have to make an effort to get to them. That way, by the time you get to the methods you'd have calmed down a little bit and have had the opportunity to think more rationally. Maybe event try to get out of the house entirely when you are having urges, or go sit with your parents. I do that when I have urges to self harm. I go watch TV with my parents as a distraction and because it would get a little suspicious if I up and left.
If you do get a strong enough urge to act on your feelings I strongly encourage you to tell your parents and head to the emergency room. I know you may not want to but you definitely would need a break and a bit of respite to start to develop a new mindset. Some time away may help.
Try and find things to replace the behaviors. For example, when you start to feel an urge to harm yourself, take a cold shower so it can reset your body. It kind of is a shock to the system and acts as a reboot. Maybe draw or paint on yourself instead of doing something harmful so you can look at something beautiful. At least it washes off when you're done. Also reward yourself for not acting on your impulses. Maybe watch your favorite comfort show/movie after, or do an activity or hobby you like.
I know it's hard, but you can get through this!

Do you ever get a little bit tired of life
Like you're not really happy but you don't wanna die
Like you're hanging by a thread but you gotta survive
'Cause you gotta survive

I'm sorry you have been having a hard time with this and I hope that you are doing okay now. When we are upset, stressed and just having a hard time with everything that is going on, always try to find something that can help comfort you and help pick you up as well. Having a blanket around you or holding something like a stuffed animal or if you have a pet or having something else with you or on you or next to you so that this can help you to feel better. I hope you are doing okay now. Sending you to help.
