Annoying Mosquito

Sometimes, I just don’t want to be here anymore.

I’ve fought hard and continue to try to banish this unwelcome emotion and for periods of time, I’ve even succeeded. I’ve gotten too cocky about it a few times, thinking that I’ve finally accomplished what seems like the impossible.

But what’s really near impossible is being able to just talk about it with someone without scaring them so badly that they either:

A. Avoid me like the plague, which happens 89% of the time

B. Try to lock me up in the psych ward

It seems to me that suicide is becoming more of an epidemic because people just don’t want to get involved.

I would go back to weave some nice baskets if I honestly thought that I’d follow through with a plan to end this thing called life once and for all. I really would, even though the accommodations and quality of care were less than desirable.

They stopped my pain medications, gave me insulin when I didn’t need it, upped a med that was making matters worse and their idea of a mattress absolutely destroyed any chance that I’d be able to sleep, heal, rest and not wake up in severe pain every morning.

They also served me decaf coffee.


Yet as much as I fear having to go back inside, in order to save my life, I guess that I fucking would.

It helps me when I can talk about what I am experiencing openly without being afraid of the assumption that I’m holding a steak knife across my throat. 

I really just want somebody to listen to me and that was what my mom did, bless her beautiful soul.

Here’s the craziest thing…I can go a few weeks without the thought even crossing my mind. Actually, the idea of it absolutely appalls me to my very core and I’ll wave my hand at it like it’s an annoying mosquito (that I know deep down will be back eventually to suck at my blood.)

Since my mom died almost three months ago, the notion to bring on my own demise has come back around hot and fresh, just like my morning cup of caffeinated coffee.

I’m also astonished how my grief is being handled by the few friends that I claim to have.

They mostly avoid me like the plague.

It’s blaringly obvious (more than before) that I don’t have many people who consistently check up on my mental state.

Even then, what is there to really say?

It’s really hard for me to make friends and it’s always been that way. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a introverted empath or if it’s because I’m just a weirdo with a mood disorder.

Hell, it’s probably both.

Back in the old days when I still was able to work for a living, I socialized with my coworkers. Those relationships fizzled out once I went on disability, which my mom had told me meant that they really weren’t my friends anyway.

She always had a knack for explaining the world to me, especially when it came to relationships.


I’m starting to think that I’m just destined to be on again/off again suicidal. When I look forward at the big picture, it’s the one thing that loves to land on me, trying to suck me dry.

  1. I’m sorry you feel like people have abandoned you. I know I haven’t been around, well I am, but like any introvert, I hesitate to push myself on to anyone. I know you know that I AM HERE when you really need me. I may be a bit late in answering but I will. I try to check fb or my email several times a day (more like a dozen times or so…) It’s so damn hard to reach out. I know that also.


  2. I get where you are coming from. Sometimes (lately to be honest) I’m like it’s a decision like any other so if it is my life than why can’t I make that decision. It’s probably just depression talking but in the moment it feels like complete sense. But I’m scared of dying so I’m 99.999 percent sure it will never manifest to reality. Lol And I also get not being good at making friends. I have one friend now and I keep telling myself I’m going to make an effort for more. Then I tell myself maybe this is just time I need to focus on me and my career. 🤷🏻‍♀️ In short, me too. Hugs!

    • I get it, of course. It’s always that option, it often gives me the freedom to say fuck this shit and I’ll almost feel better! Like, I can do that if it gets to be too much. But then, I am also so against throwing my life away when so many people (like my mom) just wanted to keep living. ❤
      Too many friends overwhelm me, but the feeling of not having many friends makes me sad. It's a never-ending cycle. (Hugs)
