Life On The Other Side Of Mental Illness

Disconnecting Realities

I feel things. Deeply. When something happens to me or someone I love, I have an immediate reaction. I cry, I scream, I laugh. I’m a wear your heart on your sleeve kind of girl.

But now I feel numb. I have no reaction. I’m floating between disconnecting realities and on the surface it seems like I am coping. What does that even mean? To cope?

Something happened to someone I love. Something I don’t want to put into words. People ask if I’m ok and I tell them that I’m fine.

The truth is, I’m scared to fall apart in case I cannot put myself back together. 


  1. Oh no! I hope all is getting better in your part of the world, sending positive thoughts your way!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear this. I’m sending love and strength your way. Hugs x
