    I have my good days and they're great!

    Then I have my bad days where the darkness is so powerful that I can not control my thoughts. They over power anything I try to control them with. I feel powerless. I feel weak and like a failure. I feel there is no reason for me to be here anymore. I do not feel loved. I feel...

    I need to leave now. I'm a worthless,

    empty, sick individual. Nobody gives a **** about me. It'd be so much easier on everyone if I was dead. I plan to be gone by this time tomorrow

    Only those who have experienced depression

    truly understand what a debilitating and horrible disease it is. All you want to do is sleep, and sleep, and sleep. The medication that the psychiatrists give you cause you to become even more numb, more cold. You feel worthless, helpless even. You begin to self-medicate but...

    for a long time. Everyone is screaming at me because my grades are slipping and my room is a mess and I can't get out of bed but I don't know what to do. I can't take this anymore.

    I wish I had my blade

    but my mom made me throw it away because if I did have my blade I would cut the words "I knew it was to good to be true" on my leg which would hurt a lot to cut that much into my skin but I do it to feel pain to know im still alive

    Am I Dreaming Or Is It Me?

    I fall asleep to wake up to this dream. This dream of me. This dream of me falling off the track. Of things I can't take back. It's just a list of faces and known places. A heart that cannot be fixed. A mind that's on the fritz. What is this. What is this hole you've dug...

    and always it seems to backfire. I am losing all the friends I ever held dear. I feel alone and miserable. I always screw something up to the point wjere I ask myself why I even bother anymore. maybe im meant to die alone nd unhappy.

    I want to sleep my days away

    until I have none. I want a drunken stupor that lasts in silence of my own house so I can dwell and be completely lost but without being lost at all. No one to call. No one to see. No one to hear. Just me and my empty thoughts. Alone. In complete bitter silence where my mind...

    I was fine, more like euphoric

    but fine. Now it's come back again. I don't have the energy or motivation to do anything anymore and my mum is fretting about my grades going down again. I told her how I'm feeling and she called me self-centred. Now I'm depressed and guilty. Yay.

    My Declaration

    I don't know what the cause is.

    .. But I feel it. It comes and goes at random times. People pretend to care, but in reality, they don't. Mostly likely for amusement or just feeling pity.

    Stuff Is Making Me Mad

    I've had issues with depression since I was 11. I eventually was put on medication when I wasn't self medicating with other things. I was forced to stay off my mood stabilizer when my mother went all nuts and threatened a lot of BS if I filled my prescription with her insurance...

    I still haven't went to get help,

    I can't bring myself to do it. Maybe I don't actually care and want to feel this way. I don't see my future, I can't see myself doing anything "happy and productive" in the next 5-10 years if I do live. I'm useless, not really good at anything. Although there are positive sides...

    I Am Depressed

    Sadness is tears after losing a game

    or a broken bone, depression is sobs at 3 am when you're all alone. Sadness makes you blue, depression makes you numb. Sadness loses to happy, depression loses to none. Sadness is the curious neighbor, depression is the unwanted houseguest. Sadness is your hotel room, depression...
