I want the world to look beautiful and safe again.

Is that too much to ask?
And don't tell me talk to T.
No T.
She can do nothing.
Just how do I get there?
To a better place?
I can't find it.
I trying and trying and I try and get stuff done.
And I do a bit.
Then back to computer.
Computer feels safer.
Real world freakin me.
I want to run.
RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN.
Physically remove myself from this life that is mine.
Live in the forest alone until I die.

Hi muffled,
Can you go camping or go hiking or something? Get a break from the world for a little bit? I understand that feeling - life can be so hard, and sometimes you just want a break. Any way that you can find to make a little time just for you to do whatever you want can help a little with that. It's hard. It's ok to avoid the real world too, if it's too scary right now. You can't do it forever, but it's fine to take time out and not deal with it when it gets too overwhelming.

Hope you're able to get a little peace soon.

Let me know if you figure it out, Muffly. Because if anyone can, I believe you can.

I'm sorry it hurts so much right now.

I have had to accept that some days I just am not ready for a full dose of the world. On those days, instead of beating myself up for what I haven't been able to stand (or do, to get to); I make my Ta-Da! list of what I have been able to do. SOmetimes it's really tiny things like, "I walked around the block," or "I went to the store," or "I talked to the lady at the post office."

They seem like crummy little kid steps but they are concrete. They build up, over time. What I find is that when I am at my worst, like, um, lately, those TaDa's can carry me through.

I don't know if this applies at all to how you look at the world but it helps me, even if only a little bit. Yes, life sucks right now (for me), but in small enough chunks, I can still take parts of the world on. And that is enough, it really is.
