    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...

    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...

    These past few weeks have been terrible.

    I don't want to get up and do the things I used to love to do. I don't want to spend time with my friends and family. The dark thoughts are starting to be around more and more. I started some meds last week that I hope help, but they are making things worse at the moment. The...

    Seriously. I just got one of my exam results

    and it went awful. It's not hard to fix this, but failing because of stupid mistakes is really depressing.

    I'm tired of dealing with family-in-law here.

    Nobody understands me: They criticize me. Nobody understands me: They keep saying 'don't get hurt by small things'. Nobody takes me seriously: They make fun of my idea and thoughts. Nobody cares about me. Everybody avoids me. Feels like nobody likes me. I'm trapped and sheltered...

    Hey, how's all you trolls been?

    I haven't been on here in a long time. Months actually. One of the people I was talking to and became good friends with turned out to be so fake that it made feel like everyone on here is but oh well I guess I should get over it. What should I expect, it is the internet after...

    The reason why I joined EP

    because I was a little depressed, but over the time, after reading a lot of stories and exploring, I noticed that a lot of people here have worse problems than me so I felt that they needed a shoulder to cry on or just someone to accompany them throughout the difficult times of...

    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...

    So my doctor told my mom about how I feel,

    and that I need to go see a psychiatrist... And she absolutely refuses to realise that something might not be alright... She keeps saying "all teenagers get sad once in a while" and I just try and explain to her that it's not 'once in a while' I get sad... I'm not sad, I'm in...

    I'm pretty sure I've been depressed the

    majority of my life. I've been a cutter since I was molested at 12 by my step dad. I struggle with self harm and as much as I try to stop, it always comes back and I can't stop it. Right now I just want to drink until I can't see or hear the world around me...

    I do know what it feels like. I'm not there right now, but I certainly know what it feels like to not want to wake up again. Its a dark, dark, distant place and I could never wish that on anyone else. Its hard **** but you can get through it. The worse thing is it that you...

    Everybody is always so fuc*king "fine".

    But we are not. Sometimes, we are hurt and bruised and nearly completely shattered and this, sir, is not what one calls fine... No one knows what's happening and you have to wear that fake smile so you don't hurt others..

    It's not as bad as it could be (and it could be

    a lot worse), but I can't get myself to a point where I am content. It's only been about a week since summer vacation started, and I have sort of hung out with some of my friends, but when I come back home I'm just stuck with my thoughts again. And these aren't good thoughts...

    I keep worrying about what I am going to do

    with my life. I do not have any talents or hobbies. It stresses me out because since I was young I always told myself I would do something I love. When I think about it nothing holds my interest. It has always been that way I never had a dream for my future. Now my "future" is...

    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'm here because I feel like I have nothing to

    live for anymore. There is very little happiness in my life and I seem to either disappoint or upset my family. I think about death every day and long for peace. I'm tired of living in this world. It depresses me. I wish I could go to sleep and never wake up.

    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...

    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...
