    Think About This...

    Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this. You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You’re just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those...

    I recently took a PHQ questionnaire.

    I self-report as moderately depressed. I am not too disturbed or troubled by this, seeing that I have suffered loss, emotional and finicial abuse.

    I felt it happening. I was sitting there trying

    my damnedest to start the next item on the DVR and he just kept talking. I had a sinking feeling. I could taste the food souring in my mouth as he kept bloody talking. I felt the fall so deeply and so vividly. It almost never happens with such marked clarity. I don't know what...

    Oh man, wtffff is wrong with me?

    I managed to attend a family meal last night with my in-laws, after ingesting muscle relaxants and barbiturates. I'm not sure how I was able to carry on a conversation, but I did. Faked some smiles and laughs, couldn't let the nieces see me distraught. After we got home and I...

    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...

    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...

    I think in the back of my mind,

    I'm always sad. But it's days like these that I know that I really am depressed. Those days where I'm lying on my bed, staring at my ceiling, tears rolling down my face, and praying that God will end my life. The days I'm driving down the road in silence and too often I think...

    As silly as it might sound,

    as childish as it might be, I just want a hug. A warm, warm hug I can sink into and realize that this person will never abandon me, yell at me, hit me, or scorn me. And I think that if somehow I got a person to hug me like this, it's be all better.

    I can't cry. I literally can't.

    I have no tears left and I want so badly to cry. I never feel happy. Almost nothing excites me or makes me happy anymore. It's been like this for almost two years now, or more I don't remember. I feel a sadness lurking around me all the time. Around my friends, my family, around...

    Yep, got diagnosed with Chronic Depression.

    They gave me "happy pills" or anti-depressants. Now I just feel numb. They don't make me feel better. The only people who know I take them is my brother, my mom and my dad. I don't even understand how it got so bad. Maybe it was coming out, maybe it was being molested, maybe it...
