NVSN Journal Entry No. 14

November 01, 2017

They say my brain is sticky
That if I take this med it'll help uplift me
24/7 a bad nightmare you stay in my head,
You fill me with doubt, distress and dread

Bombarded with emotions I can't get out of bed,
It's a constant switch between the two states of mind
It's like there's another me that I go back and forth from

With the real me that's kinda sidelined
Put on the backburner and declined
This built up fear in me I'm confined
To these imaginary walls I built,

I need to remind,
Myself That its not me but my OCD
It rearranges my mind with its tricks I need a DOC
Cause from my POV
It's a complete catas-tro-phe

Faith over fear
Is where those who are dear
Tell me to steer
They say,
"Surrender to the universe as you get in gear"

And pray,
"Please never give up even when you fall"
OCD I'm way above you
Their love helps me conquer all

    Dear contributor,

    Thank you so much for sharing your story and creativity with the NVSN community. Your piece is a great reminder of the power of support and how encouraging it can be to have those closest to you be by your side at all times. We commend you for believing in yourself and believing in those around you to help you work through what you are going through.

    “Fall down seven times, get up eight”

    It’s a lot easier said than done, but it’s so important you keep trying to get up. Every time you rise, you learn. Every time you learn, you grow. The more you grow, the more you can spread the beautiful message you conveyed in your poem to those around you. Thank you once again for sharing this piece and we at NVSN are so proud of your maturity, understanding and courage to keep going.

    Sending good vibes,

    - NVSN
