    Well 4 months ago, my depression episode turned

    into one of the scariest episode I ever had. I started cutting, overdosing on drugs (any kind of drugs), starving myself and I just feel empty... I just feel like I'm scared to be going through the same thing again because it was a living hell. I think I'm getting a relapse in...

    By Declaring We Are Weak, We Become Weak, We Do Not Become Better.

    Whatever you dream and think of, you create. If it is hell, you die and see hell. If it is evil and Satan, you get a Satan. If ghosts, you get ghosts. Whatever you think, that you become. If you have to think, think good thoughts, great thoughts. This taking for granted that you...

    and anxiety. I feel so Lonely, even when I'm around a group of friends, I feel like I don't belong. I feel like when I die, none of what i did will matter.

    Depressed Teens Are Intelligent, Not Psycho!

    If you are sad about family stuff (yes, even abuse) or about conflicting inner personalities....you are smart enough to realize that this is not the way you want your life and the world to be. These things are at odds with your beliefs and thoughts.... Therefore they upset you...

    Everyday I go into school

    and everyone thinks I'm the awesome,perfect, happiest girl there. It's kind of funny. All I can do is sit in class and try not to cry. The hardest part is starting to tear up and having to force a smile. I'm so tired..

    Hi, I'm a 21 year old medical student living

    abroad, I was diagnosed with bipolar nearly 3 years ago, and before that I struggled a lot. I let it get quite far before my family told me to seek medical help, and finally gave me the courage to take a step forward. I've dealt with severe depression and bipolar for as long as...

    I thought I finally pushed past my depression,

    I thought someone actually cared. But when they disappeared I was left with nothing. I think about cutting everyday again, Yet I haven't done it (maybe I am strong). But then I think again, and I feel worthless. I feel like I'm not good enough for anyone, and I constantly feel...

    What many people don't realize is that their words really can hurt people. The person may not show that it effects them, however the minute their alone everything breaks. Some may cut, some may just cry, some may actually commit suicide! You should always be cautious of the...

    I'm a teen with depression.

    .. And I know I'm not the only one. But it sure feels like it sometimes. If the faces around me are hiding their true emotions, then they're pretty damn good at it. They say "it takes one to know one," but as far as I know, I'm the ONLY one. At least, that's what it feels like...

    People don't know how I feel. They don't know what it's like to be in a crowded room and still feel lonely. I feel like everyone eventually leaves, no one actually cares. That's the reason I started self-harming because I feel that empty loneliness inside and I can't help but...

    Depression is... An emptiness,

    that swallows us whole. It's not even just pure dark or light, pure sadness or anger, it's emptiness. My emptiness was caused by my sense of not belonging. Nobody likes me, or talks to me. Nobody wants to be my friend or ask me what's wrong. They just don't care about me. I don...
