What a way to Fail...

14 posts in this topic

I have been doing my damnedest to keep myself in a good healthy mindset, but I really just failed hard this week...

Things have not been going to smoothly for me this week, (trying to support my husband for the suicide of his friend and now his dying grandfather, finding out my husband has been doing meth behind my back... and a fight between my sister and husband over stupidity) but I have been trying to just let it go and not let myself be run by it. It has been really hard keeping stuff in perspective with one thing after another just almost constantly knocking me down...

Last night I decided to drink a little to just not think about any of it. (usually it works, I just get tipsy and pass out) But I couldn't get myself to stop thinking about all the bullshit... I felt like I was just sinking deeper and deeper into depression... I felt just hopeless and alone... So in a stupid drunken state, I grabbed a knife and sat in the bathroom just crying my eyes out... and I cut my wrist... I haven't done that stupid shit in 8 years... But I felt like I couldn't stop myself anymore... I feel so disgusted with myself.. I'm a mom now... I can't be doing shit like that... It's just selfish...

My husband saw it and got really pissed at me.. but he hasn't said a word about it yet... I feel so stupid...

If you let yourself sink in every thoughts that will come out you will suffer over and over again... a single thought that you touch it will not end and the worst part is you will harm your self... try meditation rather than drink a beer.. 😂

Just look for a solution... not for a quicker out.. you are not a "VICTIM" is it helpful to drink and cut yourself? Maybe at the moment.., but tomorrow morning or after that moment you are still in that problem.. right??? That problem never leaves you even if you drink a lot... Try to think of your daughter.. she needs you.. she needs you to be strong.. choose to think positively focus on the positive side...

With the disappearance of unhealthiness, a healthy body remains. But this is not true in the case of the mind. There is no such thing as a “healthy mind”.  Mind, as such, is the disturbance, the disease. Meditation is the state of no-mind is a healthy state.

The ordinary man is being used by his mind. When it becomes too much, when the mind starts using you completely in a totalitarian way, we call it madness. 

Body should be healthy and strong and well-nourished but mind should be blank and empty! And the criterion of supreme health is - a well-filled body and an empty mind.

But we are more intent on filling the mind. This is our life-long effort - to fill the mind with thoughts, desires, ambitions! Mind is noise, it is craziness, insanity. No-mind is silence, health, wholeness.

@zoey101 Hey zoey,

I had a quite depressed and somewhat suicidal girlfriend once. What I tried with her and really helper her was 1. DAILY meditation, and secondly, the moment you feel overwhelmed you sit down, close your eyes and "feel the shit out of that pain." With that I mean focusing just on the feeling of pain inside your body. Where is it? Is it moving? Is it more an ache or what kind of sensation is it? The more you do the meditation the more you will be able to focus on that. 

With her, after a few months of that practice it got SIGNIFICANTLY better. So if at the moment you feel hopeless, maybe that ca give you a bit of hope.

Good luck.

but the problems dont end. You fix one problem and there is another one. Then you fix that one and there is another on. They are infinite

Thank you guys for the advice. I've had a night to sleep it off, and I spent the day away from everything with my husband and daughter. We went to the aquarium and I feel a lot more relaxed. I have a clearer mind and I know it was just a dumb drunken experience..

@Shroomdoctor Thank you. I'll look into the meditation.

@John Iverson i know... I'm sorry... I know it was stupid and selfish... I don't want to do it again anymore...
