I Am Wondering What the Point In Living Is

you know , the two comedians that I thought were hilarious both committed suicide. Isn't that weird. 4,201 People

    I just feel like I have no control anymore,

    after everything I've had to deal with. No matter how much I wish for it, I can't rewind time, and even if I did, I'd just be reliving the decline. This is the first time I've been depressed, it's been five months. Before I was unhappy, but at least I could hope. I've pushed...

    One More Sunset

    Nothing ever seems to make me feel better than seeing a vibrantly colorful sunset. I watched one yesterday and it was amazing, I cried. I keep on telling myself one more sunset, to try to convince myself to fight the dark thoughts and this damn disease. Being sick sucks...

    Maybe there just isn't a point to life at all. Humans have decided that LIFE had to have a point. So all of these human things-your career, relationships, material posessions (sp.?), all of that ****, but does it really matter all that much? We are all going to die. This is not...
