    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...

    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 am again dead. Why did I do this to myself.

    Why did I bring it back into my life. I am so lost. All I can do is lay in bed. I have no energy. I can't breathe and my mind is everywhere but there's nothing in it. If that makes any sense at all. All I can do is stare straight. I can't talk or move.

    As silly as it might sound,

    as childish as it might be, I just want a hug. A warm, warm hug I can sink into and realize that this person will never abandon me, yell at me, hit me, or scorn me. And I think that if somehow I got a person to hug me like this, it's be all better.

    I recently took a PHQ questionnaire.

    I self-report as moderately depressed. I am not too disturbed or troubled by this, seeing that I have suffered loss, emotional and finicial abuse.

    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...

    Am I Dreaming Or Is It Me?

    I fall asleep to wake up to this dream. This dream of me. This dream of me falling off the track. Of things I can't take back. It's just a list of faces and known places. A heart that cannot be fixed. A mind that's on the fritz. What is this. What is this hole you've dug...

    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...
