    It's been 2 years since my husband

    and I started having issues. He had told all of our friends he was cheating on me. Then he said it was a lie he made up. The friend that told me about this then attempted to start a relationship with me which I reflected. Our entire circle of "friends" has since stopped...

    I'm so aware of the people around me.

    My tears stop the moment I can feel a wakeful presence besides my own. And an automatic smile is an instant defense against the question, "Are you okay?" The charade continues, "I'm Fine," I respond. But I'm not. I'm not okay, I'm not fine, I'm HURTING! I wish I could make them...

    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...

    My whole life has been a contradiction.

    I have been taught to live a life that other people would have no reason to criticize yet I'm supposed to follow my dreams, which I have been told constantly are not realistic. I have been put down by the very people who shove religious beliefs and the actions of Christ, our...

    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...

    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..

    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...

    They don't see the tear tracks on my face

    and they can't hear me screaming on the inside. They don't see me curled up in a ball when I'm supposed to be peacefully sleeping. I'm invisible when I'm carving my hurting heart into my skin. They don't see the self-hate nor the hateful monster I see in the mirror. They see...

    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...

    Life has been too much lately.

    I am feeling bitter about it tonight, as much as I'm trying not to. I wish I had the money to just leave. Just pack up my bags, get on a bus in the middle of the night, and be gone.
