    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 feel so broken now.

    I just want it all to stop. Everything in my old life is gone, I just live on to fail again and again. Being a victim of child abuse and rape have tainted my chances of belonging in this world. And if you want to say "be strong. You can make it through this-", just stop. I've...

    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...

    sometimes i feel like i lose faith in humanity.

    ie, I saw that PSA about sexual assault. it's just some PSA, basically saying how it's 'on us' to raise awareness about it. I don't really see anything wrong with that, but everyone went batshit over it. some people say, "I have no responsibility for others." I might agree...

    "Alone" By: Edgar Allen Poe.

    From childhood's hour I have not been As others were; I have not seen As others saw; I could not bring My passions from a common spring. From the same source I have not taken My sorrow; I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone; And all I loved, I loved alone. Then...
