Anger is a monster whose main duty is to scare you…
It comes at night, when everything and everyone is quite…
It has big claws and red eyes, it wants you to look at it, so that you tremble and fall…
At this point you would expect that the story would turn around, and the monster will be chased far far away…
No, my monster, my anger eats me up and makes me eat up and we struggle every night. No one wins, well it mostly wins with me taking my sleeping pill that sometimes only works for a few hours. I wake up, and it is still there with red eyes staring into mine challenging me to go into battle. I know I will lose sooner or later.
So far I have kept my promise of not harming myself. But the struggle with the anger monster keeps me alive but am dead really. Nothing matters anymore. I want to eternally sleep and I have to keep my eyes opened – reminds me of a scene where Donald Duck sticks up matches in his eyes not to fall asleep.
So till when will this battle go on, and what will happen when I have no more hunger to eat to keep my eyes opened? What kind of anger will I come up with? Will it be against me? I sorely hope so. And how strong will it be, crescendo or a volcano? Will I harm myself? Will I feel this tearing up between my promise and the fantasy of death? What is this spectrum of mood disorders and where do I stand? Am I evolving forward towards a more developed syndrome? I cannot honestly answer the latest question with anything but yes.
I passed through a hell of a night, but I kept alive. The fridge and I talked together like good old best friends. You see it helps me fight the monster. I looked at myself in the mirror while passing from one room to another. I saw my reflection: I was the monster. My eyes were shot red, my hair all over the place, my skin grey…
Yet I was alive. But this is a small fake victory – for am not alive no more than the monster is real.
I am an insane mother and this monster cannot hurt my little ones. I will not allow it, alive or dead….
I know how to fake it with my children. I only do not know how much longer I will be able to do this…
But I will do it till there is nothing left of me – or in this state (a lot) if you get what I mean.
I make no sense at all, even those around me find me nonsensical. I am one day seeking hospitalization, the second minute am cracking my head against the wall to get out.
I am scared from the monster, for that monster is nothing but my own mind….
