Hey, I’m Celiynna.

I’ve felt the intense urge to run from where I live.

there are many reasons but the main ones are that it’s drought weather over here and it hardly rains and that there’s not a lot of jobs or things to do her friends to find her support to be had around here. They just keep me here because I have nowhere to go and they know it, so they’ll take what they can for me while they have me but I can’t let them do that. But I can’t let them do that.

I need to find the place where I belong, and it is not here.

I can’t be the only one right?I can’t be the only one right?

it keeps growing, I try to do all I can to distract myself or push it back until I can find a good apartment somewhere but somewhere within me, it’s a voice saying it’s not enough.

What could I do?

Hello,

Welcome to the DTL community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give support to those who reach out to us. 

I'm just wondering, when you say that 'they' keep you there, can you tell me more about this? Who are they?

My supposed family.

They keep me here because they know I’m on disability, they know I have no experience with the world, they know my mom over sheltered me and my father trained me and my sisters our whole lives with rules on how to be submissive housewives.

Thats why I say my sisters weren’t rsised, we were trained.

People say, it couldn’t have been that bad; It was.

Hey there,

It sounds like you've had a tricky experience growing up in your family environment; what was the emotional experience of this like for you?

Also, I just want to check, is everything safe for you at home?

Everyone is so angry about things these days, nobody wants to do anything. And according to my family, my mental health is not their job or their priority or their problem. I’m on my own, I always have been since I was about 12 years old, I guess that’s when I began my journey of… Ending it.

I have no freedom, everyone around here can just drive off when they need to clear their head. No one else will take me for a drive when I want or need to go, the worst part is, most of them just tell me to walk around the block or take a walk up and down the street, thinking that should be enough for me when they know it would never be enough for them.
They cannot expect me to settle for something I know they would not settle for.
Sometimes, I feel like I only have two options. I either run or die and I don’t have a safe way to do either.

it’s always been this way, I’ve always been overprotected. There’s never been a time where I could really do anything without being overwatch me or just straight saying I can’t go because they don’t know what’s gonna happen. Most people in teenage household, will never know what happens with their teenage child, and just because I was visually impaired, they didn’t want anything to happen… Literally, so nothing dead. Nothing good anyway.

sure I was protected… From everything good, the only things that hurt me and hurt me badly were the things and the people that said they were trying to protect me. I’m 25 years old, I don’t know how many times I’m gonna say that but what I can tell you is I only have two options and never mind the fact that I have seven other personalities within me, I don’t live in my head alone and the rest of us are anxious to either leave or die.

I don’t know how much longer I can hold on to the nothingness that is left in this town and of my family. My brother and I are the only ones who really look out for each other and ourselves.

Hey,

I’ve just read your other post and it sounds like you’ve really been through a lot in your life. For now, I just want to check, are you safe? If you aren’t, it’s okay to share that with me. Honesty is the best policy and we are here for you. I hope to hear from you soon. Take care.

I'm glad to hear you're safe, physically. In terms of the emotional side of your health, it sounds like it's time to start finding ways to take care of your wellbeing garden. I'm wondering, say that when you went to sleep tonight, a miracle happened and your life has completely changed and your problems were better, can you tell me 5 things that would be different?

Sure.

Before beginning, I will state that not even a myrical could save my broken past. That being said,

1. My car and I would be in a nice apartment alone together, happy and at peace; All her dreams would be a reality, which would melt my heart.

2. I’d have a KILLER job where the boss trusts me and lets me try things before saying I can’t do them; It helps that it pays well, both me and my cat can live.

3. Only people I want to know would know where I live.

4. I’d have tight, supportive friends and family who are there for me, as I am for them, who have bonfire, music, MaryJane and food parties with me and laugh about dumb shit, REAL friends and family.

5. I would have plants, probably another cat, gardens, a porch swing and it would rain often.

All Of this would probably reignite my will to sing again. Maybe I’d even find the courage to love somebody romantically, but I can’t focus on those things now.of this would probably reignite my will to sing again. Maybe I’d even find the courage to love somebody romantically, but I can’t focus on those things.

So I guess those would be the things that would change.

Hi @Celiynna-Rhae, I'm Aurora, I'm one of the other support mentors here at Ditch the Label. I thought I would jump in while Monsoon is away. I hope that's OK. 

Thank you for coming up with the list of things that would be different. You've gone into a lot of detail, which is great.  Let's just say, the miracle had happened, what is the main thing that would feel different compared to now?  And what are the first five things you would notice when you woke up in the morning that would tell you that this miracle had happened?
