Taking back myself

With the year approaching its end, and with everyone jotting down their resolutions, its my time to have mine jotted down.

For the year 2011, I want to take back myself.

I have changed dramatically this year, to the majority of those who know me, they say its a good change.
I, on the other hand don’t necessary agree with them.

Dissociative by nature, i had to force myself to be part of the family once again, i don’t mind that actually, but the massive amount of information associated with it is alot, varying from the typical who took my bla bla, crossing to the relatives and their news and ending with running the show in times of chaos when there was a serious family member health problems. I am not used to, nor want to be part of the bullshit nonsense that is part of this communal, i am by no means better than any other person, but i want to be liberated from this bullshit.

Since i moved out, i managed to a certain degree to build my own silent empire, but since late December 2009, and throughout this year, ending in November 2010, i have been under massive pressure which resulted in insomnia, to the degree that 15mg (3 pills) of Valium doesn’t have any effect on me, many doctors could not help me, multiple sedatives and anti depressants could not bring me back, alcohol and other substances recommended failed also.

The set of norms and logic i apply to everyday life were gone, and everything was wrong in this past year. I thought that when im back to my own comfort zone all well be ok, but alas, im still having problems.

Two months now, i am still with issues, 99% of my blog posts are written post 3AM. my work productivity is at a minimal, freelance work is not even on the agenda. I drive slowly like old folk due to lack of concentration, walking like a drunk dude, unbalanced and plagued by fatigue.

Therefore for 2011 i want to take back myself.
i want to enjoy what i used to enjoy, up to speed on all the stuff that i love, enhance whatever needs enhancing, find a new outlet for stress, alienate what needs to be alienated, and thee most important thing is to sleep.

For those who reached this paragraph, a new year wish from me to you:
May you this and that, here and there and everywhere.

Thus spake the night spirit.

    Silence is a blessing yes. Being thousands of miles away from the relatives’ hub, I can relate to your views about the craziness that surrounds the communal life. I say, wait till you have kids. Silence will be a ‘concept’ only.

    Wow Doomish, there is a LOT IN THIS POST. You have really been through a lot. I think half of it would half killed a person who didn’t disassociate a little bit.

    Congratulate yourself on making it through. Sleep is a great first priority. Can you go for a walk everyday? It is a good, simple life sorter. Then put a guard up in your thought-life…don’t let those nasty niggly energy-stealers in to bounce around in your head.

    I will pray for you. Hang in there.

    Simply put, if you take an animal out of its natural normal habitat, put him in a cage, the chances are that he will be stressed, depressed and sometimes aggressive.

    I am like that animal at this moment in time.

    Thanks for the wishes, be safe at uni on sunday 😛

    My area is superb for walks, but unfortunately it didn’t help me out. i’ve done it all.

    on a brighter note, rain is here, that is always good mood lifter

    Thanks for the wishes.

    First off, i hail from the city from which Mansaf originated, unfortunately i came to dislike it, i am no fan of cooked meat.

    and as a night shift nanny, that is a cool idea, but would they hire a dude? would you?

    For the historical record, doomish originally was not a state of mind, doomish.com has been alive since 15th of July 2002 as a community where fans and musicians of specific genre of music (Doom metal) contributed/learned Guitar notations of obscure and underground bands and artists, until the MPAA/Congress outlawed this form of Guitar notations and started a witch hunt, and at that point, I stopped, specifically when another friend/competitor website has been served a cease and decease letter from the MPAA goons.

    thank you for the wishes 🙂
