I just submitted my first University essay (for a take home exam) since I survived my suicide attempt.
I wanted to tell someone about how much it feels like I have accomplished something, but I know at this point my friends are sick of hearing it and they cannot really understand.
The effort it took and the immense fear. I don't always know what my triggers are but anything that makes me highly stressed is a no go. I am also seeing a psychiatrist and my essay was on Psychiatry and its limitations so it was somewhat triggery considering.
But I did it, and it feels like I have not accomplished anything in so so long.
I know its just an essay but it feels like I pushed back against my illness and won this round. Even if I lose tomorrow, this makes me feel OK, and I have not felt OK in a long time. :):):)
