    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...

    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

    Every Day

    I want to scream and sob and cry because my cat just died. I know it's not a big deal but I got sad and these are the times I fall deeper into my depression. It's when I realize how truly unstable I am. These are the times I literally want to fall back into complete darkness and...

    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'm not sure how common this is

    but I have random bursts of 5 to 30 minuets of painless ness. Afterwards I also always end up with a migraine. I'm only 14 and I'm very confused. I'm not completely complaining because it has kept me going in a rugby match or rare fight, I'm just a bit concurred. I'm assuming...

    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

    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.
