Numbness.

It’s feeling the need to cry but lacking the willpower to let the tears flow.

It’s hearing snippets of conversation but never comprehending the words.

It’s lying on the floor, unable to do anything but concentrate on the way you breathe.

Breathing in, breathing out, breathing in, breathing out;

A constant cycle of living and dying and living and dying and living and dying and surfacing with nothing.

The ability to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel the world.

But the inability to experience it.

– “Numbness is….”

  1. I relate to this so much. You are an excellent write whom I empathize with deeply. I often feel numb because of my ED and I feel what you described where I’m on the border between life and death. Hang in there xx
