Just want some relief. There is absolutely no doubt that there are others who deal with unbelievably difficult situations and problems. Of course, the person to either side of me has a hardship or ten. I know. It could be worse. But I just want a break. How do you escape from your mind? How do you find the energy to care or to even want to care anymore? Sleep is only a brief escape, and only if the dreams stay away. I live a great life. The problems are fairly minimal. I just wish there was an off switch for the thoughts that constantly run rampant. On a positive note, kudos to those who manage to keep fighting, keep running, and keep breathing. You are doing great! And to those of us who might feel as if we aren’t keeping up, we are all doing fine. We will keep on trying until we get it. Right?
