    Depression is our darkness,

    our light, and our fall. Depression is a monster, a weakness to all. She lies within us and cries every night, Bearing all the pain we've bottled up inside. She feels all the heartbreak, she feels all our pain, She braces herself as she takes all the blame. She's the tears that...

    who has ever cared about me. I love my bff she has always been there for me and she knows all my secrets, but im only getting worst and if one day im gone i dont want her to suffer. Its best if we just go our own ways.

    So, i finally asked my bf of 3 years,

    to leave my life. He wasnt a monster at all, he just wasnt meant for me. I waited about 2 weeks before i told the known world. As expected, there were lots of questions. Everyone thought i was happy. No one saw what happened behind closed doors. I answered as best i could. "Why...

    I dont want to do anything right now.

    I dont want to go to school, talk to anyone, or leave my room. I want the world to forget about me, and carry on as if i was never here. Nobody notices me anyways.

    Don't you just hate it

    when people tell you to simply "Get over it?" Well obviously those people have no clue what it is like to have a clinical mental condition DIAGNOSED mind you, by a professional physician. I wish that hopefully people become more aware of mental illnesses like these. Granted not...

    and that I am completely alone. I may act like I am fine on the outside, but there is a war going on inside of me. I don't even understand how I feel anymore I just know I don't feel right. My parents think everything is ok but they just don't get it and I can't even explain it...

    That is why when someone messages me here (or

    if I message someone) I take time to reply. I want to be social but I get anxiety just getting a message, that's why I'm not on here as much as I wish I was.

    I deal with depression

    and anxiety on daily... And lately here I cope by visualizing my life as being better and doing everything possible to prepare myself for that better life... It makes me happy when I'm trying in my own environment but when I'm in public the social anxiety kicks into overdrive...

    Nobody even takes it seriously.

    Until I start feeling suicidal or I start self-harming, nobody cares. Actually, not many people really care when that happens either.. Anyway, the good thing is that I don't really have to be embarrassed about anything I do or say. People don't care about someone who doesn't...

    Things that should make me happy dont. Sometimes I find brief happiness but it never last long enough. The negative thoughts start to quickly attack my happiness. For example I have a new boyfriend but I'm not sure if I'm happy. He treats me well. i know he wants to make me...

    I've had anxiety since I was 5. I remember constantly checking the doors to make sure they were locked. I didn't know that was a sign of having anxiety until a couple years later. When I was little I didn't go out and play that much because I was too scared to leave the house. If...

    much more. There's more regularity to it, and it seems, to me, to be a lot more 'rational' than my anxiety, if that makes sense?
