I can’t delete the images of today.

Today might’ve been the most emotionally draining day at work ever. I watched a 16 year old girl with severe depression slice her arm and bleed like a faucet. I’ve never witnessed anything like this. I still don’t know how to interpret my emotions. I’ve been fighting tears since 3pm. I went to drink my pain away hoping that coping mechanism would help. It didn’t. She triggered me. She made me recall my mother’s last hours in the hospital. I was helpless then and helpless now.

I absolutely hate going to bed with this still fresh on my brain. I’m drained. I’m weak. I can’t even finish this blog how I wanted to. Just know you never know anyone else’s struggles. I’m glad this girl didn’t take her life.
