    cruel but faithful

    I suffer from depression and I use to battle depression.  I've suffered from this disorder for the past 25 years.  I've more or less gotten use to these worthless feelings.  My depression came from a head injury, and I've come to realize that these feelings of...

    I Don't

    No, I don't battle it.  It sometimes overtakes me and I live through it however.

    I Concider Myself Lucky!

    I get down sometimes I do admit, but I get over it relatively quickly. The odd thing is both my parents and most of the rest of my family has it. It's because of them that I know for a fact I don't have it. I don't think my brother has it either. Away from home I am much...

    Depression Takes a Lot Out of Me

    I absolutely refuse to say I battle depression. I may be deep in depression and I may say things that depress others but I absolutely feel that there is a battle is not true. I've been in and out of depression since age three. I know that there are medications that keep me...

    We Had Our Battle

    Years ago, I fought that battle and won. I never realized I was depressed, on a conscious level. I was though, for about 10 years. I realize now, that back then I was depressed. I don't exactly know how I won the battle... I just decided that I was worth much more, and I...
