    I Feel Depressed And No One Believes Me

    The worst about being depressed is that no one ever believes me. I am still in high school so no matter who I'll try to explain it to (my mom, my best friends, my shrink) no one ever takes me seriously. Because of this I simply feel alone as well. My father is the person I look...

    It's one of those days.

    It usually happens on Sundays. I think it's Sunday Syndrome where the weekend's over and you have to go back to school. Only today it's MLJK Day :/ I find myself stuck on how to deal with it. Any tips on giving myself a boost? :)

    So Overwhelmed, No Motivation

     i feel like i have too much on my plate, no money, no friend that can give me moral support or lover to just hold me and comfort me. it is depressing to see my ex and her new girlfriend every day at work, see them talking and smiling, and my coworkers thinking they are cute...

     Ever have someone ask why you're depressed, and when you tell them, they can understand why you might be disheartened or in a bad mood, but not really depressed?  Those of us who know what it's like to be depressed know that if you could add up all the elements that...

    It was terrible. I thought that maybe I'd gotten out of the hole I so desperately hate. Though, it came back. Like a black hole sucking me into it. My day began normal and cheerful, but halfway through it, something changed and it came crashing down. I figured it would though...

    I've barely left my bed all day.

    No one calls me. No one texts me to see if I'm okay. Nobody cares anymore. They only care when you can do a favor for them. When you not capable of helping them they don't want anything to do with you. I can barely see straight so I can do my homework. I'm perpetually hungry.
