This is a thought that crosses my mind daily. It’s like I”m chained up to the edges of my skull and my brain just won’t let me go! And the worst part is … I think it’s laughing at me. Stupid malfunctioning brain has locked me behind bars and is fracking laughing at me!
I have, on numerous occasions, tried to escape. At first I’ll be successful, even feel happy for a moment or two … and then *BAM!* My thoughts grab me by the neck and pull me right back in. It’s like I barely get the chance to even have a gasp of oxygen.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I need a new escape route. Apparently the ones I’ve been relying on are doing little to get me ahead. Perhaps I’ve been looking at the wrong map? Because I am clearly lost. Lost in thought. Lost in sanity. Lost. Lost. Lost.
Escape tactics already executed? Well in no particular order (and not always at the same time):
2. Flax seed Oil and vitamin D
3. Light Therapy
5. Self- Talk
8. Eating healthier
9. Writing in a journal
10. Ice Cream/Beer/Margaritas/Chocolate
To be honest … I’ve got no clue what else to try. My brain has such a tight grip on everything that I just don’t see any other ways to get out.
Am I missing something?
Did I forget to brush my teeth? (Rhetorical Question … )
Is there some unknown issue I’ve been repressing that needs to be resolved?
Seriously … I’ve got nothing.
When all else fails, what do YOU do to escape your mind?
