    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 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...

    I think im at the point

    where I don't want to live, yet too scared to die. When I get into these moods I often want to take my own life, but I never do, because deep within me I feel as if I am destined to do something in this life. There are so many things I haven't seen or done yet. It would be a...

    I would really want to know what I am doing

    wrong. I want to know why boys won't talk to me. I want to know why I don't make friends as easily as others. what is wrong with me. is it because I'm not as pretty or skinny as other girls? or because I don't wear designer clothes or converse? is it because of my personality...

    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...

    it's really depressing

    when you can't love the guy you love the most. it's forbidden love, and it hurts a lot.

    Been battling depression

    for almost a decade now... every 2-3 years I keep tumbling down the dark path... Can't forget and forgive people. I keep thinking of the world as a utopian place. If not for my friends, I would have left earth a long time back. They and my will power are my source of strength...

    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...

    There's no point in telling people

    that everything is okay. There's no point to it. It's pointless and dumb. Nothing will be okay. I guess it just took me a while to figure that out

    Welcome numbness Farewell Love I thought this

    numbness is temporary. I thought at one point, it'll be so much emotions that i would feel sooner than later. But out of expectation... it became like a poison that spread inside of me. Toxic of nothingness. And I just woke up... one afternoon at exactly 3:01 pm feeling nothing...

    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..

    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...

    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...
