    I Do Know What It Feels Like. ...

    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 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...

    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...

    Since I lost the greatest love of my life I

    have been asked countless times what I did to her that caused this. Unfortunately it is assumed that since I am a man, all men are jerks and thus I did something wrong. I can’t say that this did not offend me because I gave her nothing but kindness, love and respect. I did...

    I want to describe what I'm feeling,

    but the words just won't come. I'm alone and sad, begging for someone to hold me and tell me I have worth. That I don't need to slit my wrists, not tonight. I need to describe this feeling but it seems there is not way to describe depression correctly..

    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...

    Time's passage astonishes me.

    It's not so much a progression as it is something that just keeps getting swiped out from under me. Or, sometimes, I just am astonished at how I'm still around...like it was a miracle. Except, not really. More like a miracle of bad luck.

    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...
