      I didn’t think I’d have to come back here so quickly but here I am. I recently got discharged from the crisis team and was doing okay for a little while and then suddenly I started to get really I’ll again. I fell into compulsions and rumination and I actually feel even worse than before. I’m on medication but the thing is my mind is racing but all I feel is numbness. I find it hard to cry and my mind is convincing me I’m a psychopath. I don’t want to be a psychopath. I want to know that I feel guilt and sadness and love and etc but why is my brain not feeling any of those things. It’s also telling me things like if my mother died I wouldn’t care or if I did something horrible I wouldn’t care. I’m a horrible person. I feel guilty at the fact I don’t want to commit suicide. I can’t understand what’s going on in my head. Maybe I’m meant for a shitty life. It’s just not fair. I’m sad. I’m hurt and my brain is convincing me I’m not even sad and that I just don’t care. I WANT TO CARE. So why is my brain going against everything I’m saying.
