    I Think I'm Alright

    For most of this year I've been feeling really down. Sometimes I think it really was depression and anxiety, although I never told anyone or went to the doctor to find out. I think starting university was a huge change for me and it definitely contributed to how I was feeling...

    These past few months have been amazing.

    We are now in November and it's exactly a year since I started therapy, because of my social anxiety and Tourette's. It's been a long road and it's been difficult to know how to act around my overprotective and strict mother. I'm a person unable to say "no", without feeling the...

    I'm Happy :d

    For the past few years, it's been extremely difficult to be happy with everything that was going on in my life. Parents divorced, boyfriends, low self esteem, eating disorder, cutting problem, letting people use me in ways that I'm ashamed to speak about. It was just a really...

    I have had a long section of depression.

    It's been caused by quite a few factors, but it's really been compounding and it has been a difficult thing to deal with. I guess it was even exacerbated by the fact that right before this extended depressive period, I was feeling completely "on top of the world." I was SO in...

    Many Years

    I feel sorta lighter than I have done in many years. I don't know how to explain it, but I guess it was a good thing to end that friendship with my supposed friend. When I think about it, I have always had the desire and wish to care for the world, my dreams and wishes have...

    I am trying to be happy

    for myself for all I've accomplished, trying to be cheerful and kind and loving to everyone, and love myself in the process. It's taking serious effort, but it's working. Send out love and you'll get it back.

    I know it won't last long,

    but I'll be happy if it lasts a month. It's been an unlikely combination of actually feeling mildly contented and self fulfilled, and being on break from school and having time to capitalize on these feelings. I'm around my family, which is nice, but I've actually been able to...

    Feeling Better

    I am feeling so much better

    now than this morning. My heart isn't aching much. I can say I had a good day--the interview at the company I'm applying at, the late lunch, the good shopping time, then a few minutes of exercise when I got home.

    My chronic headaches have lessened,

    but there's still neck and back pain and teeth numbing. However, it's a start. Plus, I can listen to music again. I feel like I should be ecstatic, but I'm not. For over six months, I've felt misery and that all the life has been sucked from within me. I still do, but music...

    I just am. It's difficult to find a bright side

    sometimes, but hey, their are people worse off. I have my basic needs when it comes to being happy. I'm not saying I don't feel down sometimes, I'm just saying I don't feel down as much. I'm feeling better, and that is a good thing.
