How can I get rid of excruciating emotional pain? What do you do?
I cut and drink to numb the pain. I know this isn't healthy, but I can't stand how bad I feel, so I disassociate. That's what a therapist said I was doing. Been in and out of therapy and on and off meds. Still the overwhelming bad feelings keep coming.
I was abused as a child, and still suffer the emotional fallout. What can I do to help myself? My kids are college age and I do this when no one is around.
We lost our health insurance, but don't qualify for assistance cause we own a home. It sucks feeling like this!
