    Even when I don't feel depressed,

    that black cloud is always looming nearby. There are times when I'm completely numb...I realize that I should be feeling something, anything, but I don't. At least if I feel sad or miserable, I feel something. It would be amazing to feel happiness more often, but I just don't...

    I tend to get mad easily.

    As well as cry easily sometimes. I also have days where I feel like life isn't worth living anymore. I don't want pity. This is just the truth and one of the many flaws of myself.

    I Feel Like The Bad Guy

    I try to be happy and put a smile on for everyone but it doesn't help. I'm only fooling those who don't know me. I'm always sad and feel like crying. I think about dying and suicide everyday and i feel like no one listens or understands me. I also feel as if they don't want to be...

    Sometimes It Switches From Hour By Hour

    Well, i don't even know where to begin. I've been diagnosed with depression since I was 16. I've actually been diagnosed with other things too, but nobody could really make up their mind of what I have, other than depression. Lately, I've been noticing that I go up and down a lot...

    I hate when you feel decent,

    happy almost, and then it disappears, and you feel insignificant and depressed again. It comes out of nowhere pretty much, and it completely takes you over.

    I have been doing so well these past few months.

    I've felt genuinely happy quite frequently... but twice this week I have had bad moments of intense anger. I keep it inside, but I have to hide myself in my room so I can cry. Every time I get angry like this, I have very self-destructive thoughts that I feel I can't control. I...

    Bipolar Much?!?!?

     A while ago I was diagnosed as being bipolar II.  The main difference between I and II is that BPI-ers tend to be at either extreme for weeks/months at a time, while BPII-ers like me can swing day to day, or even hour to hour. It's a pain in the azz. I can go from...

    I sometimes have quite bad mood swings and end up snapping at people when I don't mean to. Earlier on in my life I was really depressed, but these days it isn't so bad. :)
