    I get so mad myself all the time,

    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...

    Nothing seems to be going right in my life.

    I used to be on top of my game and was enjoying a great life. I don't know what is going on anymore. Everything started when my relationship with the person I thought to be my soulmate ended. It all went down hill from there. I used to have a great career. People saw me as a...

    My life thus far, explained in years of age: 1.

    I cannot remember. For my first birthday I got a cake in the shape of a baseball, based on the few photos from my childhood I managed to acquire. 2. I can remember only vaguely. We lived in a different house then. Our father worked at Safeway at the time, and often came home...

    I hate feeling this way.

    I feel like I'm being a big baby. I'm so depressed and don't really care. In a weird way I do feel assertive, but not. I don't really know. I hate admitting it. I want somebody to take care of me kinda. I want to just curl up next to them and feel safe. I don't want to have to...

    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...

    Depression is one of those things

    where you can't control it. Things that once made you happy don't anymore. You get sad all the time. You don't feel like yourself. It just truly sucks. Why can't I be happy like everyone else :'( why ?

    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 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...

    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...

    The sadness will never end.

    Everything I do is in vain. I embrace pain because it's the only thing I have left to feel. I've never felt so numb, so distant, so empty, and so alone in my entire life. I've put a loaded gun to my head several times now, but I don't have the courage to off myself. As if it...
