    Depression is one of those things

    where you can't control it. Things that once made you happy don't anymore. You get sad all the time. You don't feel like yourself. It just truly sucks. Why can't I be happy like everyone else :'( why ?

    Don't feel like getting up in the morning. When I wake up I usually stay in bed doing nothing for half an hour at least. No desire to eat. I rarely eat anything. No motivation to do that. No desire to go out with my friends. My depression is eating me up, so much to the point I...

    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 Am Depressed

    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...

    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...

    My life is a mess, And my head isn't any better.

    Believe me; I'm lying when I tell the truth, I swear it. My mind is cluttered, I must admit; It's not impressive, Not one bit. I'm scared. I'm hurt. I'm wounded. I'm tired. Sometimes I feel like my life is a only a token, In that cheap arcade game that's always broken.
