    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...

    Somehow knowing that other people also have

    problems helps me feel more alive and normal. I'd like to know any depressing circumstances that people may be facing now. No pressure to post of course. Listening to sad moth podcasts gets old quick and I feel weird being the only non-addict in AA just to talk to other sad...

    It seems weird to me

    that people believe in horoscopes. I'm a leo and I'm apparently supposed to be super confident and into myself but either I'm the most self loathing leo on the planet or it's a crock of ****. Today is my day off and I haven't left my bed unless someone told me to which has only...

    My Declaration

    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've struggled with depression

    for most of my life. I've tried medication, the works. And it doesn't get better. I don't want to, can't ask my friends for help. I'm too worried what they'd see if they glimpsed my fractured psyche. Now I've resorted to pushing others away. Why do I keep doing this? Honestly I...

    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...

    Sometimes, what we need to do to survive,

    is to believe lies what people have made, lies that we have made, things we end up believing by repeating them too much, because that makes us close our eyes and avoid reality, because reality is too cold, too hard, too empty. Who would like to face reality when it's like that...

    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...

    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...

    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...
