do you need to scream?

what do you do when you need to scream and there is no where to go?


Hey I know where your'e

Hey I know where your'e coming from..had that feeling enough times! too often go for stuffing chocolate & drinking too much wine (bad move!) but a few days ago when i really wanted to scream (had a bad seizure at the wkend, after a really long spell without one!).. i came on here & had a real good chat to someone, who cheered me up no end. so if your'e reading this Andy, thanks mate! :-)
how come you need to scream? don't worry if you don't wanna say, but it might help to have a good rant!

Re: Hey I know where your'e

Just because the day has been stupid and I feel agitated and depressed.

I seem to be the source of all the problems around me and I keep finding myself thinking about how much better it would be if the source of the problems (ie me) were removed.

But that's not really me thinking and I know the difference.

But I kept having this urge to hide under my desk at work and cry and punch the floor and scream. Of course I couldn't, so the scream stayed bottled up inside...

Re: Re: Hey I know where your'e

Do you know how many times I have days like that at work.. but mostly cos my job drives me up the wall & I want to get out! then you start thinking about lots of other things which make you even more depressed.. & it all just escalates, & as you say you just wanna SCREAM! Best thing is to let it all out, have a good rant & moan to really helps! & don't think that it'd be better if that 'source' (ie you) yr talking about were removed. thats not true & you know it.
sorry your'e having such a bad time.. I do hope you have a better day tomorrow. Here's a big hug

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Thank you

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Thank you ! I feel better! Oh what do I do when I feel like screaming? I just do it... OK maybe it is just me. Maybe my neighbors are like on edge and need prozac...but I feel better when I scream. Honestly A pillow works really well for screaming into, they work well for punching too...just be careful its not one of those feather ones..kinda messy...and don't breathe in and suffocate yourself.

I'm a drummer and when I get frustrated (and don't have a migraine) it's fun to beat the skins for a while.

Re: do you need to scream?

ive found that these blogs are a good release (i just started but oh just u wait they are going to get better. i have so much to get off my chest)... or i play fight club on my xbox and scream at my tv for a while. or i do what any adult does... i bottle it up. then when i time is right i explode on the world. little pieces of jacky everywhere... hey look its jacky's pancreas on the sidewalk....

when life gives you lemons... smell an orange
