I can't go by a single day without a dose of toxic. It has always been this way, for as long as I can remember. Toxic is a disease that won't stay away. Is there an unknown cure? I am unsure. I try to keep the toxic away, but it always finds a way back to taunt me. Each day waking up in fear if toxic will be there to ruin my entire mood and day. I am afraid. I am frightened by toxic. I want to scream and shout at the top of my lungs, "leave me alone!" "You hurt me!" "You made me feel worthless!" but I am afraid of how toxic will react. My hands shake and my teeth shutter in fear. There's nothing I can do about it. Would anyone even listen? Would they care? Unlikely. I am being over dramatic they'll say. They'll say it was my fault and I'm a bitch with a bad attitude. It's not the case, I am closed in so I appear invisible to toxic. Toxic you put me down till I'm at my lowest point. You don't see it but I'm crying, I'm shaking, I'm hurting. You are toxic, why can't you see it? I feel hopeless. You don't care. You feed off the weakest ones. It gives you power I know it. You dismiss my feelings and my needs, you make me feel worthless. To the extent I question my existence. "What's the point?" So give me the daily dose of toxic, I'm used to it.
