  1. When it feels like nothing you do to heal has helped, there’s that feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. Obsessive thoughts combined with shame and regret build layer upon layer making life feel unmanageable. I am trying to keep the thought that healing is possible in my heart and in the head. We have to try to get up and start the day. Even if we feel like the biggest loser life has ever seen. I am feeling broken, guilty, shameful, lost, helpless, hopeless, sick, tired, stressed, confused, utterly alone….blood is boiling swirling hurling more thoughts and feelings of loss and darkness. Sad.
