Out of control | Alexander Lubomirskiy

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. For a long time, I didn’t want to put up with this diagnosis. I took it as a cruel joke. “Do all people feel the same as me? All people change their mood.

Everyone can be sad and happy.” I did not want to notice what was happening in my life and talk about the problem out loud. Because a man must be strong and not show his weaknesses. We have been taught this way since childhood. Probably it could go on for a very long time, but at some point I noticed that I was destroying myself day by day trying to find a way out of the hunger and emptiness that is inside of me. I do not notice how sometimes I hurt my close people. Looking for people, body and sensations to fill the emotional hunger. These feelings are devouring me. I do not realize where I go at night and why I sometimes commit this or that act. I do not sleep for several days. I am looking for myself without knowing exactly what. I am angry and I do not find. And then I lie in my bed with the desire to just close my eyes and never wake up anymore. I breathe slowly and try not to cry, because I have no right to tears. I must be strong. And no matter how it seems to me that I’m keeping everything under control. I have long lost control of the situation. And the cycles of my illness are increasingly affecting my life. I know that all this is a disease, but this knowledge does not give me strength and unfortunately does not give me the opportunity to get out of this vicious circle. I think I will regret what I am saying now.
