    Does anyone else feel really tired all the time?

    I've been depressed for awhile, but this year I've started feeling extremely tired. I had a snow day today and accidentally slept for 14 hours straight. Everyday after school I take a 2 hour nap. I get behind on work because I'm so tired all the time. My parents accuse me of...

    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...

    Everything changed the day I picked up a blade.

    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've been depressed for two months

    now due to neglect and anxiety and have been trying to fight it. I then suddenly had the urge to commit suicide tonight. I don't usually tell anyone about my problems but it was like a must to tell my bestfriend about my plan. He then told my parents and they talked to me about...

    When I was a just, I hid my heart under the bed,

    because my mother said, "I f you're not carefully, someday someone's going to break it". Take it from me. under the bed is not a good hiding spot. I know because I've been shot down so many times by broken promises. But that's what we were told. Stand up for yourself. and that's...

    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...

    Today I was about to cry in front of my class.

    I tried to hide it by taking off my glasses and wiping my eyes but one boy saw me. Luckily he just asked if I was okay and didn't tell anyone. Everyone thinks I'm happy that I'm all by myself, but I'm not. I wish I had friends that actually like me and don't laugh at me...

    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...

    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...

    I'm tired of feeling useless.

    The only thing stopping me from committing suicide is God. I pray asking for questions as to why I'm treated so horribly. I have no one to go to. No one to help me and I'm slowly running out of options.
