I Am Depressed

    So yesterday I travelled back from Dublin to

    Eindhoven yesterday and after a while me and a really cute and beautiful girl caught sitting a few rows to the front on the other side of the pathway eye contact and we both started smiling slowly and immediately there was a certain connection or whatever you should call it. I...

    My heart can only take

    so much. I don't know what to do to escape the pain. My thoughts frighten me.

    Why is suicide so inviting?

    To know that it would be over, that I wouldn't have to do it anymore... It seems wonderful. I don't remember a time when I didn't wish for death, even as a child I would often times find myself thinking about the end. I don't know why I am depressed, not the root of my...

    I do know what it feels like. I'm not there right now, but I certainly know what it feels like to not want to wake up again. Its a dark, dark, distant place and I could never wish that on anyone else. Its hard **** but you can get through it. The worse thing is it that you...

    So he texted me and asked

    why I didn't say hi to him and his girlfriend and got a drink as friends? Could you do that with someone you loved so much? someone you might still do? Could you smile to him and remember how much pain he caused you? Then he tells you, you were too much to him when you spent 2...

    I hate my ******* family.

    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 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...

    once I show I'm upset. It just seems so much easier to feign happiness.

    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...

    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 ADHD medicine gave me focus today,

    but all I could focus on was the negative, and then I noticed I was doing so and was trying to think of positive things in my life, and I became further depressed. Everything I do is meaningless, a means to end, an end I never wanted. When I'm not on this medicine I just don't...

    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 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...

    or anyone. I don't deserve anything; not happiness, success or even love. When you're in love and you have depression, insignificant things suddenly become you're main focus - today I told my boyfriend that I loved him and he never replied. Some of you may be thinking that maybe...
