    I have been sad for longer

    than I can remember. I tried to tell people who I thought were friends when they just told me that it wasn't that bad and they had worse. I lost all my friends. I don't know what I did but I destroyed relationships with friends, family, other people and somehow everyone blamed...

    It has been over ten years

    since I had a steady relationship. I've had short relationships but nothing meaningful in the past ten years. I was never the most popular guy, but I used to be able to charm girls and have a good time when going out. The relationship I had ten years ago lasted three years. We...

    I am so sad all the time

    and I don't know why completely. I have had so much trauma growing up and things I have had to go through in my older years. I am twenty three now. I feel six years old and sixty years old at the same time. I am a victim of abuse on so many levels and I often find myself...

    I have never been alone,

    there has always been someone there in my life. There is naturally nothing wrong with this only when you forget how to be alone with yourself; I have forgotten. After the break-up of my marriage, I suffered major depression (still am), I have little friends, my relationship with...

    My last bf is 5 years ago

    and of course during these five years there were some men chasing after me but it just never feels right anymore. I'm lonely but I'm really used to it. I enjoy being not bothered and being all single. But sometimes I hope my 'special somebody' will show up soon, someone that...

    Alone But ...

    I've read some stories about loneliness, and it prompted me to write this. At 51, I thought I'd be somewhere other than where I am now. I thought I'd have a book published by now, that I'd have my own herd of alpacas (albeit a small one), that I'd be with the love of my life and...

    Sometimes I Google.

    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...

    I hate it when I get really depressed.

    There's not exactly a reason why, I just get super miserable. I pretty much feel like giving up on myself, and a lot of the time I wish I could just disappear. I just want this to end.

    my life is a mess. The pain, the hurt, all the negative emotion is draining my body of energy. I have no motivation. I just want to lay in bed, tucked away beneath the duvet. Hidden away. Life is not what it's cracked up to be. I don't really want to participate in...

    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.
