    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 never have any energy.

    I'm like a zombie. I feel lifeless. I basically live in my bed and have for 6 - 7 years. It's hard for me to do small and necessary tasks. My motivation is disappearing more and more each day. I'm always stressed and obsessing about one thought or another, but that's probably...

    I've been feeling incredibly depressed

    as of late, I realize everyone around me is experiencing some sort of connection with another person. And I can't do that because I have such a hard time talking to people. If someone would like to message me, not anything sexual, maybe just talk and get to know each other that...

    I'm so suicidal. I'm lonely.

    I don't feel like I can talk to anyone about how I feel....I'm annoying. I'm stupid. I'm a loser. I have no one who wants to hang out with me. No one actually "cares about me" ...I know they are lying. And I hurt myself to feel better, like the pathetic f**king loser I am.

    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...

    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 read this today and it pretty much exactly

    describes how I feel. Absolutely no interest in anything anymore. Just a desire to do nothing, not caring if I exist. It's hard to work up the energy to treat patients when I can't motivate myself to care about anything anymore.

    I feel like I'm sinking deeper

    and deeper into this hole. Somedays im "okay" and other days I just feel so low. Zero energy, zero motivation to do anything constructive. I just sit and allow my thoughts and scars to destroy me slowly. I need help.

    I Am Depressed

    Only those who have experienced depression

    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...

    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...
