    My mother disrespected me,

    and she ruined my childhood (you may not know me, but I am really sensitive, so I can be not prepared of what shes going to say, and also, I am not used to her saying them) She tells me a lot of horrible things at me, and at times, she would yell at me, threat at me, berate me...

    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've taken the tumble into complete depression.

    It's been three years since i've experienced a moment so dark as this one. I feel like I can't breathe and the worst thing is I refuse to tell anyone. I'm ashamed of who I am and that I let myself do this. I recently stopped cutting, which I'm immensely proud of, but I feel even...

    I just feel like crap all the time

    and don't know what to do about it. I just can't concentrate on university anymore and my hirsutism just makes me feel lonely and hopeless. I cry almost everyday and just want to lie in bed and do nothing or sleep. I get tired just thinking about starting the new academic year...

    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...

    A friend of mine passed away yesterday.

    Her life was taken by someone who said he loved her. .....this world disgusts me But at the same time I don't not fully blame the man responsible. The world itself is dark and wicked. It leads us down dark paths. Eventually some of us travel down long enough to believe we...

    No matter how much work

    and time you spend towards something, sometimes it's not enough and it is not meant to be. All that is desired is a place where you can be happy and content. Be proud of yourself. So I just sit here with my interest in music and my debt, wishing I would of never picked up a...

    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 know how to fake a smile

    even when I'm really low. Faking a smile is a good trick that helps me hide it. I don't want any stupid therapy

    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...

    I was depressed continuously

    for about a year and a half and now I get sudden waves of depression and my thoughts go wack and I start thinking of doing things I know are wrong and I wish this wouldn't happen but it does.

    I think people often underestimate what

    depression does to a person. I go from externalization/narcissism in dissociative states to internalization/depression. In other words; I go back and forth from deluding myself and avoiding it, to not deluding myself, which gives room for the slow unbearable process of...

    This is the hardest part I believe.

    Trying to explain how we do want help but at the same time want to be left alone. How after such a long time, we have fallen in love with our sadness and have convinced ourselves that without it we are nothing. We have come to identify ourselves with it; it's our comfort zone...

    Have you ever felt that void in your chest,

    I'm starting to think about death a lot.

    I wouldn't say I was suicidal but I'm definitely starting to think about who would miss me if I was gone and what would happen to all my stuff. I accept that I need help because I don't want to die just yet even if depression tells me I do. I want to fight this.
