    Nobody's life is easy,

    but it is always harder for those who are down. It is especially difficult for those who are living in harsh conditions at home. I live in a dysfunctional family. My stepfather is relentlessly on my back and almost always in a grump. Same with my mother, though not as bad as my...

    she's not the most beautiful,

    nor the smartest, and sometimes she causes more trouble than she could deal with. But I love her.. and for that I'm heartbroken..

    When a part of your family talks **** about you

    and look down on you. Every time I get knocked down, they never lend a hand and pull me back up. Instead, they like to use me as a way to compare, particularly with their own kids. Why? Because they like to brag that their kids are more successful than me (not knowing what the...

    I need to leave now. I'm a worthless,

    empty, sick individual. Nobody gives a **** about me. It'd be so much easier on everyone if I was dead. I plan to be gone by this time tomorrow

    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 don't get hurt easily.

    I really don't. Lately, I've just felt so ******. I don't even know what it really is. I learned to hide it well. I feel pretty accomplished about that.

    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 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've taken the tumble into complete depression.

    It's been three years since i've experienced a moment so dark as this one. I feel like I can't breathe and the worst thing is I refuse to tell anyone. I'm ashamed of who I am and that I let myself do this. I recently stopped cutting, which I'm immensely proud of, but I feel even...

    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...

    I really feel so alone in this world.

    My parents don't understand me and when I cry to them and tell them I'm unhappy, they get mad and make it seem like I'm the bad guy. And I can't really rely on anybody

    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..

    I've been struggling with depression

    since I was 12. And it's honestly the most frustrating thing. Cause one minute I'll be perfectly fine and happy and the next all I'll want is to die. All I have to say is I have the utmost compassion for people that struggle with depression. Cause people that don't will never...

    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...
