comparing a bad relationship to a disease

Apathy- the opposite of love and the state I am in.

The result of disrespectful words and actions.

The emotion one is left with when all of the others have been depleted.

It feels as if as if I had lived with a poison.

My body struggles to flush the toxins from its cells.

The effort it has taken to return to  normal is exhausting.

I can only tolerate people from a distance now.

Like a confinement of sorts.

I walk and write and do it all over again in an attempt  to counteract the disease that I was once infected with.
