    I Wish Someone Could Take The Pain Away.

    There are so many factors at play, here. Tonight, I feel horrible. I even broke down for the first time in forever. I just want this pain to go away.

    I can't take this anymore.

    I have no friends, no friends at all. I have no one to talk to. I feel like killing myself. Everything is just dark, and I feel so numb. I'm not even sure if I can pretend to be happy anymore. I feel like I'm going insane.

    My social anxiety keeps me from enjoying

    activities in public and I often feel more lonely seeing all the families and couples and groups of friends. So I stay home. And that only worsens my depression and loneliness. I don't know how to break this cycle.

    I Hate It When Things Of The Everyday Remind You Of "him/her"

    I was watching CSI on tv, and while I was typing up a story, there was a part at the end of the show where a suicide note was written by a guy who jumped in front of a drunk man's moving car. For some reason it reminded me of the sad note I wrote for my ex when we were still...

    I am lonely, as I said in the title. And I'm sure the nature of my situation is like that of many others; I have purposefully isolated myself. As a kid with ADD, I missed a lot of things, and got picked on because of it. I suppose it didn't help that my skin was about as thick as...
