    Always so lonely. No friends,

    no one to talk to. Always by myself in my room on the computer. One day it will get better (maybe), but for now.. always so lonely, lonely.

    Extremely depressed. Lonely.

    No love. No sex. No emotions. Feeling hopeless, sad, depressed, miserable. Just want to die.

    I am surrounded by a million different shades

    of grey, each darker than the one before. My stinging, tear-filled eyes strain as I search desperately for color. A scream fills the air, and I look to see where it came from. Then I realize that it came from within me. The horrific scream had burst from my aching body. My heart...

    What I Hate Most About It

    What I hate most about it is that if I ask for help, if I let someone find out, then they'll feel pressured or guilt tripped into spending time with me. I don't want to make anyone to feel like that. I really don't want to pressure anyone into keeping me company, I just want...
