    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...

    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...

    I been depressed since my parents got separated

    and it's been a while. I guess because of my dad. What he did was wrong and still right now I can't forgive him. I don't think I can forgive him ever.

    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...

    Kids don't deserve to cry themselves to sleep

    every night. They should use ropes for jump rope. They should use blades to sharpen pencils. I am not one to talk though. People look at me and get all emotional because of how pitiful I am

    I'm pretty sure I've been depressed the

    majority of my life. I've been a cutter since I was molested at 12 by my step dad. I struggle with self harm and as much as I try to stop, it always comes back and I can't stop it. Right now I just want to drink until I can't see or hear the world around me...

    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...

    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...

    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..

    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...

    It's not as bad as it could be (and it could be

    a lot worse), but I can't get myself to a point where I am content. It's only been about a week since summer vacation started, and I have sort of hung out with some of my friends, but when I come back home I'm just stuck with my thoughts again. And these aren't good thoughts...

    I think in the back of my mind,

    I'm always sad. But it's days like these that I know that I really am depressed. Those days where I'm lying on my bed, staring at my ceiling, tears rolling down my face, and praying that God will end my life. The days I'm driving down the road in silence and too often I think...

    with my life. I do not have any talents or hobbies. It stresses me out because since I was young I always told myself I would do something I love. When I think about it nothing holds my interest. It has always been that way I never had a dream for my future. Now my "future" is...
