    I have manic depression

    and I am a self-harmer (clean for a month and three days) but I am so close to relapsing! I have been talking to a girl I like daily for a while now and I started to think she liked me to, we are even going to homecoming together but just when I thought I might ask her out soon...

    I'm tired of waking up every morning knowing my

    day is going to be ****** up just like it was the day before.. nothing I do to change things works. I'm just giving up on trying at this point. Not like I have anything to keep me motivated to move forward anyways.

    My life thus far, explained in years of age: 1.

    I cannot remember. For my first birthday I got a cake in the shape of a baseball, based on the few photos from my childhood I managed to acquire. 2. I can remember only vaguely. We lived in a different house then. Our father worked at Safeway at the time, and often came home...

    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...

    my ex broke up with me

    and then went on to someone new three weeks later after 4 years. He knowingly played with my heart for three months, in the end I lost out and am depressed and hurt over this. How you can do that to someone that you loved for 4 years I don't understand.

    Trust me, I think of suicide every single day.

    Hanging myself. But I have unfulfilled dreams. I want to be a designer, I want to be a famous interior designer. I want to get married, have kids with the man I love. But all just fantasies.

    What's wrong? Why act

    so shocked to learn I cut myself? Nobody showed mercy when it was just me crying for mercy or peace. Funny how people take pain serious when it's self inflicted. It's too late now. I came to society as an abused child looking for compassion. People instead pitied me like a dog...

    Depression is one of those things

    where you can't control it. Things that once made you happy don't anymore. You get sad all the time. You don't feel like yourself. It just truly sucks. Why can't I be happy like everyone else :'( why ?
