    When ever I feel bad,

    I instantly calm down when I'm holding a baby. Perhaps it is the oxytocin being released, or whatever but babies are my lifesavers.

    I recently moved and I hate this place already.

    It's a chaotic, dangerous and noisy town, and I'm not even capable of doing the things that I like or going out on my own, 'cause it's a very big and very VERY dangerous town. I'm so frustrated! I miss my old town, my friends, my freedom... I don't have any of that here. I'm...

    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...

    Only those who have experienced depression

    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.
