    Pulled Back

    Lately, I've been feeling a little sad. I don't know if it's because I've been doing absolutely nothing the past couple of days but I all can say is that 3 days seem like 3 months, as it once did before. I hate it that it's come down to this. My friends are busy, that's fine I...

    I'm Getting There

    I thought I would never be happy again. Depression does that to you. I felt helpless and alone and I was extremely negative. I was waiting for someone to rescue me from myself, but no one ever really did. Somewhere along the line, I realized that I COULD be in control of my life...

    I've been feeling very sad

    and down lately, and now I'm sick of it. The occasional sadness that happens once in a while that is okay, everyone has times where they're sad for a few days but that fades. I'm fine with that. But not with feeling this way for 2 month's, only brining myself down further. It...

    It's funny how looking through old photos can

    really put your life into perspective....how clearly you can see your life in chapters. I'm in a weird chapter of my life right now, but I just keep trying to remind myself that it's just a chapter. This isn't the end of my story. There are a lot of chapters left to be written...

    This poem is something I recite to myself a lot

    when I'm feeling really down; Everyone wants happiness, No one wants pain, But you can't make a rainbow, Without a little rain. Hope this helps people feel a bit better about themselves and their lives :)

    Never Been Happy

    All my life I tried to be happy, to feel happy, to be contented. To be honest, I don't even know what happiness means, literally. I never felt happy, I tried but at the end of the day, I still feel the sadness in me. I may look like I'm having fun, like I'm very happy and...

    Happy

    Why is it so hard to be happy.  I do try, everyday I get up and say to myself that I am going to be happy today.  But a dark cloud comes over me slowly and by the afternoon I feel so sad inside, so unmotivated, and then I end up being depressed again. ...

    I Feel Like No One Will Ever Understand Me

    Every day when I wake up, I feel as if none of the things I experienced from yesterday existed, but it did. I hide myself from the world sometimes just to get away from all the horrible things that are happening. In school, I'm quiet and shy, but when I'm with my friends, they...

    Healing Slowly

    A lot of "stuff" happened in my life over the past few years - well, actually probably since I was born.  I know, that's life right?   I'm trying to get myself back to happy - the kind of happy I used to be.  Despite everything that was "wrong", when I was younger...

    Happy "again"?

    I can't remember being happy. It sounds horrible saying it, but I'm going on 20+ years of MDD, and I don't remember what "happy" is, or content, calm, relaxed, joyous. I never feel any of these, though I know I must have as a child. Yes, I would love to "become happy again". How...

    Joining EP was a good start.

    I felt a real connection with someone. I know prematurely but we seem to have a lot in common. I felt better than I have in a long time just chatting. Here's to becoming happy again.
