Entanglement in Your Mind

Have you ever felt so deeply intertwined in something that no matter how badly you feel the need to escape you can’t? You feel as if you are trying to run under water. You are working and working to escape but it’s as if your body is entombed in cement.

You can feel the burning in your throat as the air has been blocked from escaping. Your brain is becoming so muddled from the lack of oxygen that your vision is becoming blurred and the face above you is no longer even clear enough to know for sure if it is a friend who has turned on you or a foe to begin with.

All you know for sure, is that at this moment, you’d give anything to be freed from the entanglement in your mind.

I have felt like this for most of my life...it's only since about three years ago that I learned how to come up for air and breathe. Many hopes for you to be able to do the same.

Please keep writing. You are helping me understand this disorder. My beloved is bipolar and I wish he was able to express it as well as you are doing.
Thank you for posting.
Peace be with you.
