    Sometimes I just want to be in a room alone,

    curl up on the bed, and cry for 30 min straight. Nobody thinks or cares about the stress that's on me. All this hurt & pain I'm keeping in, it's taking its toll on me physically, mentally, & emotionally. It caused me to become depressed. I can't focus, it's effecting my memory...

    I sit up at night with my headphones in my ears

    and wish that I could be out with friends, family...anyone. I often wonder if it's my own fault that I'm so alone, that I may have made the wrong choices in terms of the friends I made along the way in my life. Even among people I am lonely... within crowds and anywhere that I...

    Sometimes I feel like I'm wilting.

    I can just feel the life slipping out of me and I think it's because I'm so completely alone. I have two kids who are about to leave home for university and I just feel like I'm going to be stuck here in this house with all this stuff completely alone and with no one to talk to...

    I am so afraid . I thought I was strong

    because my childhood was awful. I'm tired of fighting for happiness. I feel it illusive and I'll never be able to feel safe. I'm used to feeling lonely.

    Sad I live with it, it is my constant companion,

    I hide it well when necessary, people think I am funny and caring and an awesome person, but most days I wish I could just stop breathing.

    It's No Use...

    I'm just a useless person who doesn't matter. Nothing would happen if I killed myself anyway. No one would notice. If a few a people do notice, they wouldn't care, or would probably think it's funny anyway. I've always been scared to kill myself for eight years now. But it seems...

    I Feel Broken.

    My first post... Today was so awful. I have great parents, but even they didn't understand the magnitude of the pain I'm in. I have been depressed for years and years, so much so that I didn't really have a childhood. Not that I am that mature. Just, I am that sad. Sad beyond my...

    When I think about it too much,

    I cry or panic. I mostly panic in public and cry at home. Once I cried at school but I'm always alone so nobody really noticed except for the janitor who just awkwardly walked away.

    crying inner boy that is me. He's gone without any help, any compassion and any love for way too long. Whenever he pushes back people, it was only to not become engulfed in me as I might not cope- he was fearing for me. But, now I've shut off him, and my emotions, and I don't...

    I don't understand it.

    Like bricks or stones that ghosts around me throw I get hit in the most random of places. I get a loneliness that no one can cut through, a feeling of emptiness that is so consistently eating away at me that I legitimately feel as though there is a cylinder of nothing in my neck...
