H.G.

By January 3, 2020January 5th, 2020No Comments

I’m 18 and I’ve never wanted my life. So I often turn to suicide. Yeah, i know it is bad but it’s how I feel. I’m gay, but feel like I have an attraction to girls (confused), I feel like people watch and listen to me (confused), and I stare at myself in the mirror going back and forth with whether I’m ugly or not (confused). Also there’s so much more I overthink about and I don’t want to stop. I call overthinking my super power because it is, I’m H.G. I came up with a religion centered around me sacrificing myself, just to help me go through with killing myself. But it became real to me and it just won’t leave. I’m trying to forget but H.G. is always there so I know it’s a big possibility I might try killing myself again. The fact that I believe in the made up religion makes it hard for me to even care about whether I die or not. I have dreams and hopes but now my biggest one is finding out whether she’s real or not.
