    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...

    Is it normal to feel

    so alone while everyone is so close? Even the one I love seems to feel far away.

    Hey, how's all you trolls been?

    I haven't been on here in a long time. Months actually. One of the people I was talking to and became good friends with turned out to be so fake that it made feel like everyone on here is but oh well I guess I should get over it. What should I expect, it is the internet after...

    I want to sleep my days away

    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...

    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...

    I wish I had my blade

    but my mom made me throw it away because if I did have my blade I would cut the words "I knew it was to good to be true" on my leg which would hurt a lot to cut that much into my skin but I do it to feel pain to know im still alive

    I hate being in one of my dark days… Well,

    everyday is a dark day. I just want to end everything... I honestly can't go on like this. No one even knows how serious this is. I'm so drained, I just wanna take all of my pills and never wake up, and I can't ******* stress it enough.

    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...

    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...

    I deny myself the most simple pleasures.

    I think I've finally got it. I think I've hit my breaking point. I refuse to fall in love. I refuse to smile. I refuse to laugh. I refuse to be around people. I refuse to hurt anyone else. I give up. - KOOLKAT446

    Three years ago, I asked God to show me the one,

    he did. Then two years later I've realized that he wasn't the one, and that he looked similar to my old crush. I got depressed, and a year later, I get another dream of him and my heart went like crazy, as if I knew him for years. But when I remember that he's not real, I just...

    Even when I was told I was the problem, the cause of the arguing, the times I've felt hated, disliked, screwed up, or the times I felt like cutting or killing myself, I fought through it! Yes, I did cut myself for about 3 years straight! And battled suicidal thoughts! I still...
