    I am feeling very stuck in my life,

    I feel like I'm depressed but I haven't gone to anyone to check if I am or not and I'm afraid that if I am, then I might stay stuck for longer or for the rest of my life. My love life is very non existent, I've only had 1 girlfriend and that only lasted for 4 months while I was...

    Between Life and Death

    I'm finding my depression very difficult to cope with and am not moving forward fast enough to make it any easier. I think that getting out of this existence is the only option but I am trapped because I want to be around for my brother so that he doesn't end up like me.

    I hate feeling stuck when I don't have to. When I have the choice to change that and just make it all better. I like being free and on my own.
