    I'm twenty years old.

    Female. Born and raised Italian, but recently transplanted into the UK. I've been depressed since as far as I can remember. Not clinically, though, just a weird and uncomfortable feeling which I've had for my entire life, alongside a latent but ineradicable desire of death. The...

    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..

    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...

    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 have heard so much about how suicide is

    selfish. I feel so much more selfish for staying alive and burdening everyone with my invisible intangible problems. My mental health issues are not something that anyone can seem to understand. People don't seem to notice that there is a difference between depressed and sad...

    I've fought it for so long!

    Even when I was told I was the problem, the cause of the arguing, the times I've felt hated, disliked, screwed up, or the times I felt like cutting or killing myself, I fought through it! Yes, I did cut myself for about 3 years straight! And battled suicidal thoughts! I still...

    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...

    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...

    I hate being in one of my dark days… Well,

    everyday is a dark day. I just want to end everything... I honestly can't go on like this. No one even knows how serious this is. I'm so drained, I just wanna take all of my pills and never wake up, and I can't ******* stress it enough.

    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 Am Depressed

    I know I am depressed, it has taken me over a year to get medication for it. The constant low moods and then getting really angry. It kills me. Although not suicidal yet i feel the brief feelings coming on. I can't physically move from bed in the morning, i don't want to go out...

    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...

    Big shocker for anyone to feel this way,

    right? Yeah, blah, anyway... I feel immensely alone and honestly, it's mostly my own doing. I do not connect well with other humans. Never have, still don't, probably will never truly find the way to do so either. I can sever ties easily but make bonds minimally. So at this...
