Family can be our support system. Or they can be part of the problem. All about the complicated, loving, and difficult relationship with us and the ones who love us.
Numb to the pain you look to the bright side, engulfed with jealousy when darkness laughs and you can't hide. People try to help while they are part of the cause, but the mind takes over as you forget to pause. Mental Illness is not fun and games, triggers can't be controlled but may be contained. Turn it off so no one can hear, the yelling from loved ones, that's in your ears. Emotions cause problems so throw them away, Let logic and pleasure be your guiding way. Noises of joy and love at your expense don't make you sick but damage your pathway. You think you want what others have, but maybe it's something you believe you will never have.

Do I exist? Am I Invisible?
An indescribable hole comes into my chest and sense of self whenever my family forgets about me. Just the other day, my mother told me about how my brother, whom I hadn’t seen in two years and loved, was going to fly into California, where my other brother and his family lived, and that they were going to drive down and all get together — and she asked me, not if I wanted to join them, but she asked me if I could water the plants for her while she was gone visiting.
I was in therapy today and I learned that growing up, my parents did a really good job of making me feel physically safe, but not emotionally safe. What wrecked me when I learned this was that my parents would actually say that they did a really good job of raising me. They put food on the table, clothed me, made sure I didn't get raped by minimizing how much I went out, put a roof over my head... Some people would classify this as the bare minimum. My parents would strongly disagree. These are things you're supposed to do as a parent. That comes with the job. But what my parents didn't know was that my emotional safety was just as important as my physical safety.

The Tracks of Time
“Time goes faster the more hollow it is. Lives with no meaning go straight past you, like trains that don’t stop at your station.” ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind.

My brother in-law is a womanizer who believes a woman is easily disposed of. He wanted to move his new girlfriend in, my mother in-law told me how his girlfriend Ashley he moved in. There had been so much stress and tension because of Derek’s anger issues.
What Am I?
Over the years, I have come to realize a few things about myself: I am very empathetic, unbelievably sensitive, highly protective, and very close to nature. Even at a young age. When I was around three or four and we'd go to Target, one thing I would always do is go straight to the dog section, rip a corner off from a bag of dog food, and fill my pocket with kibbles to give to a dog I was close with at the time. At a young age, I connected with animals, bugs, grass, trees, clouds- pretty much any and everything around me. (I may be overthinking this part, as I realize children do random things all the time).

She had to go through several rounds of chemotherapy after the surgery, but after only two chemotherapy treatments, she was forced to stop because she was so underweight. Due to surgery and chemotherapy, her weight dropped rapidly to less than 80 pounds, while chemotherapy requires a weight of 90 pounds. She can only wait for her weight to slowly regain before continuing chemotherapy. The difficult road to fight cancer filled her with worry. She was afraid that she would not be able to make it through. She was afraid that one day she would suddenly die, and she would no longer be able to watch her daughter grow up. If the daughter does not have the care of her mother in her growing years, how lonely it will be; if the daughter does not have the blessing of her mother at the wedding, what a pity. Thinking of this, her heart ached. Just in case, in order to leave something for her daughters, she called her friend and wrote these words for herself in the ward,Blessings for the wedding of my daughters in 20 years. I hope this video will not be useful, I hope that I can grow up with my daughter all the time, and I can send blessings to my daughter at the wedding scene. She said silently in her heart.

I can't take medicine or exercise less.She said that every year she has to go from Langzhong to a hospital in Chongqing for re-examination. At the beginning, when it was time for the re-examination, she was anxious and had insomnia all night long. She was afraid that the results of the re-examination would suddenly break the peace of her current life. Once, because she had to leave the house for 2 days to go to Chongqing for a re-examination, the youngest daughter Yaowa heard that she would not see her mother for 2 days, and cried and made trouble. The family couldn’t persuade her. Her daughter's tears, her cowardice, and her over-reliance on herself made her even more frightened. In a hurry, she hit Yaowa. At 10 o'clock in the evening, she sent a text message to her daughter to apologize. She said in the text message: "Mom is angry today because mother doesn't like seeing you cry, and mother hopes you are a brave child." You can't cry if your mother is really gone one day, you know? I hope that as the results of each re-examination are normal, her confidence in life will become stronger and stronger, and her hope to accompany her daughter to grow up will be greater and greater. She helps the children with their homework, cooks them delicious meals, and dresses them up. She takes great care of her daughters and tries her best to be a good mother.She cherishes the days she spends with her daughter growing up now. She hopes that time will go faster and that she will be able to see her daughter grow up earlier; but she also hopes that time will be slower, so that she can remember the little things she has with her daughters. "Live well and live until the children become adults. If luck is better, maybe I can put on wedding gowns for them and say the blessing from my mother." She said hopefully.

I no longer care
Feelings. I don't even know what those are anymore. Remember when you were five years old and would trip on a rock. Then you'd cry your way to your mom. With tears pouring down your face, you would go hug your mom's leg and she would ensure that you were okay. That same loving mother that would rock you until you fell asleep or carry from the car to your room after a long road trip, no longer exists as well as my feelings.
