*** Written in 2017 ***
I am not alone and yet I feel like I am so very alone. I get lonely and that makes me sad. Maybe it’s a “me-problem”. Maybe it’s not.
I had a pretty good day. I had the house to myself which I enjoy, and I had the morning off. For once I used my time somewhat productively and wrote a blog or 2, made a few calls that I had been procrastinating and had myself a little pre-work bubble bath (mostly just because I needed to shave the bottom half of my legs…). Either way, it was good. Better then most mornings I have off. Most mornings I have off I sleep until I can’t sleep anymore or I cry and feel frustrated. At the end of the day I feel very alone.
I live with someone and 2 family members and 2 cats so physically, I am not alone. But emotionally and mentally I feel lonely. I want to talk to someone about my day, how I am feeling, what I want to do on the weekend … but I can’t. So instead I will vent to my computer, typing instead of talking.
It’s not yet 10pm and everyone is in bed. Everyone works earlier then I do so I can’t hold that against them. But still, where is my confidant when I need him? Lately it feels as though he is distant. Again, not sure if this is a “me-problem” or not. Maybe I require too much attention? Though when I think about it that doesn’t make a lick of sense. I don’t get very much one to one attention these days so it’s not like I am asking for much. I feel like we used to talk more, do more things together, we used to be “on the same page” about everything. Now I feel like I am writing our book by myself.
Where is my support? Where is my help? Sometimes I just need a hug and someone to tell me I am okay, that I am doing okay, that I will be okay… but often times I find I have to hug myself and reassure myself that I am okay, I am doing okay and I will be okay.
Tonite I don’t feel so okay. I am avoiding the dread in the back of my head and I am just hoping (maybe even praying) that I wake up and feel okay tomorrow morning. Some nights I just lay awake and think about everything and nothing all at the same time. I worry that I won’t sleep at all or that I will wake up feeling like I want to crawl into a hole and hide. I feel like tomorrow [night] will just be the same as tonite and so on and so forth into the week. I will be my comfort and support and confidant all week, by Friday night I am wiped. Weekends have become a but drab. I guess I can’t compete with certain things or people. I feel deflated. Like someone has taken the wind out of my sails.
I thought that when I got a job we could start to plan our future better, I thought that it would change something for us in the get-our-own-place department but either way we can’t get our own place for months yet. So I suppose I am disappointed. Not only in him but in myself. I am disappointed in myself for again, being too nice, too helpful, too easy going.
