Diary Entry Response

Dear Me,

This past weekend was rough.  I am glad that you were able to find an outlet and journal online.  It was very helpful.  It helps me see my thinking when I'm not thinking clearly.  When my brain feels "cloudy" and I can't think or focus on anything. 
My feelings/thoughts this weekend:
  • cloudy mind
  • suicidal ideation
  • Satan chasing me
  • I was running from death
  • if I was to focus on anything besides staying alive, I would fall or stumble
  • If I fell or stumbled, I would have "lost time" and may have died
  • there was nothing I could do
  • Staying a step ahead of death was my only option
  • I had no medication
  • I could find no LOGICAL reason for crying, being upset, suicide
  • I could not focus on positive (not because I didn't see any, because if I did I would take my thoughts off of staying ahead of death, and then I would fall)
  • my girls kept me alive
  • not wanting to continue the legacy of abuse kept me alive
  • not wanting to let the abusers win kept me alive
I was able to keep my head above water.  I was able to maintain some sense of being and living.  This is something positive for me to look at.  Every day that I am here is another victory! Another day that the abusers didn't win. Another day that I am alive and here for my children!

You and Me
I was helped this weekend by a CARING and LOVING soul,while they marched the last part of their 5K unsure they would finish.  The 5K was a special event for this person.  It was a battle they were determined to win.  They have a special reason for completing that 5K.  Not just to say they did it, but for a VERY special person in their life.  However, while they marched, they were texting me.  Not wanting to give up on their race, but not wanting to give up on me either.  This person took the time and energy to help me.  Energy that was depleting them from their goal-but NEVER giving up.  This person has not given up on me.  This person has shown me what UNCONDITIONAL love means.  This person is also to be recognized for my success this weekend.  You are an EXTRA SPECIAL person.  I truly love you!  You hold a special place in my heart that NO ONE can/will replace. You are MY angel on earth-placed in my path at various times for various reasons.

Some things I realized and tweeted on today: (referring to DID)
  • We fight a battle and we feel alone. But in reality we have a force with us always.  Sometimes they are with us and sometimes they are against us.  But they are there regardless. 
  • But they are always there-like siblings.  And like siblings, we have to learn to get along while being in each other's spaces. 
  • This calls for MUTUAL respect, caring, and understanding from everyone. 
  • This is needed for healing!
I know you are at the shore reaching out...I'm reaching back!  
I am on a healing journey.  With the help of God, Doc, and myself, I will continue on my journey to healing.  I will reach my destination.  It has not been easy.  Nor will it be easy in the future.  But with support (including my reader's support) I will make it.  I will win this battle.  I will finish this journey.

  1. Hi Jaz,

    I'm really glad you made you through another weekend. I'm sorry it was so tough. It's definitely a good thing to remember your girls when you're feeling badly. They're precious. They not only keep you alive, but I always smile when I see the pictures you Tweet of them. It makes me glad to know their mom is working so hard to keep them safe and happy. You should be proud of your girls and your mothering. I'd like to thank your friend too. I'm glad you have someone in your life who cares so much about you!

    Take care,
