I wish I had a path, or some direction but all I feel is lost and depressed. People tell me I need to be mindful and take one day at a time but how can I even do that when I don’t know where I’m going at all. It would be alright if I knew where my life was going or had something to work towards but I feel like I’m lost in the darkness and I don’t know how to find my way out.
People ask me what I am going to do this year but I really don’t know. I don’t know where my place in this world falls and I don’t know how to figure it out. I just don’t know. The problem is, I’m in pain and not the sort of pain that improves with medication to become manageable. I have severe constant headache with no cure and never any relief. I struggle to get through a day let alone a year. My pain is not manageable and most of the time it’s severe, surgery only made it worse and gave me two headaches instead of just the one.
So when I’m asked what I’m going to do this year, first I feel ashamed to say well I really don’t know and second it just makes me feel depressed. Because no doubt it will be like every year, filled with pain and misery and only glimpses of stability, only distant dreams of the life I wish I had, the life I feel that my headache stole from me in 2010.
At the minute I just feel more lost than ever, everything I try to do never works out because of the pain. So I feel like I am resigned to doing ‘not a lot’ for god knows how long, forever? I am having a nightmare with the fact that surgery has made things worse and I really don’t know what to do anymore other than feel depressed. I wish someone had some answers for me because I sure don’t.
I wish with all my heart I was able to do something more than ‘not a lot’ this year and I wish I knew what I should or could do with my life, but I really have no clue.
If you have any suggestions please fire them my way!
