    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...

    In depressed for two reasons 1: I miss my bf

    so much. I haven't seen him in like almost 3 weeks. We don't go to the same school anymore. So that sucks a lot. Like he my sun and moon, my happiness. I miss him so much and just wish I lived with him or he lived with me. 2: I wish I was pregnant. So far three of my friends...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My Declaration

    My brain is swirling

    and boiling in a pot of emotions — anxiety, fear, loneliness, embarrassment, sadness, guilt, regret, shame — I think it's depression. My depression is worsening and it has been over the past two years almost. I cut my skin, and I've cut my wrists and fingers several...

    I can't do this anymore.

    I've been lying motionless for the most part of yesterday, unable to find the motivation to get out of the uncomfortable position I was in. I was paralysed. Today I thought things were going to be a bit better, but no such luck. After all these years I had finally hoped I could...

    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...

    My whole life has been a contradiction.

    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...
