I Am Depressed

    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.

    I hate the fact that I'm the one

    that asks people if they're ok, if they're alright, if they need anything I'll be there, if they want a shoulder to cry on, I'm there, if you need someone to talk to, I'm there, if you need comfort, I'm there, if your feeling sad, I'm there. But when I am in need, or need...

    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...

    New years eve the day of the last,

    Nothing to lose but the past. The broken soul sobs deeply, As everyone else drinks freely. He silently suffers knowing its the end, As he puts the gun to his head. 11:56 he accepts his fate, An old life he has come to hate. 11:57 he leaves the note, Stained with tears of silence...

    My friend died today.

    He was also my crush and I think those feelings were returned. He used to smile at me all the time, ask about me, etc. and now he passed away. And his death wasn't pretty either. He was beaten up by drug dealers because he didn't give pay for the weed he bought. Apparently, he...

    I hear people tell me I'm pretty on this website

    but not in my real life. I get called ugly, fat, a looser and so much more. Even if I actually was pretty(I'm not) it wouldn't madder. Depression is depression and just because someone looks or talks a different way, doesn't mean they can't be depressed. The most beautiful girl...

    I thought this was a place where people support you and help you out. I'm obviously wrong. I get told I'm seeking attention when in reality I'm seeking someone to talk to. Yes I want to die. Yes I cut. Doesn't mean you have the right to judge me. So whatever. You wonder why I...
