    I'm starting to feel low again.

    I can feel it coming, like some black heavy sludge climbing up my body. It's sitting in my stomach now. I know it'll creep over me again until I want to kill myself. I have rapid cycles of feeling incredibly low and suicidal to feeling fairly level. It's seems to take something...

    Stupid pills, I know

    I'm not suicidal, and I don't think I'd ever

    actually kill myself. I just think that if I was in a situation, for instance, a car was driving straight towards me I'm not sure if I'd get out of the way ..

    I have never said this out loud.

    I've never told another living soul. I am four people. I am carrying three 'others' with me all the time and I cannot tell anybody. I don't want to be locked up for being ill.

    I have an amazing ability to take any given

    positive situation/statement/thought and make it stressful and depressing. It's not that I want to. I just do it naturally lol. Anyone want someone to cast a shadow over your happiness? I'm your woman. Hit me with your best shot

    I have been diagnosed with depression.

    I have been going to consolers and a mental health service since I was 13. I have strange thoughts, ones that people normally don't have. I also see things and hear things no one else does. I don't blame anyone for this. Although I don't think I'm weak because of this. God gave...

    Understatement Number 127!

    Yeah unstable, but surround myself with others who are the same so we get along just dandy. LOL Anyone who is even all of the time is hiding something or just really good at faking it. And if not, could ya sell me your secret? I'm not sure normal really exists though.

    When people say im a lunatic,

    unstable and depressed, I would feel lightheaded and I will act angry for a while and cry for no reason. And, no. I cant handle it. Its impossible for me to fight it.

    Lately I've been having extreme mood swings.

    For example I'll be in the mood to be social and talk to people for maybe 30 mins and then BAM. I want nothing more than to be alone. What do I want? I'm so confused o.O
