    It Doesn't Mean I Am Depressed

    To feel depressed doesn't mean I am depressed, I just need a little bit of encouragement, I know I have great potential... I am just a little bit lazy sometimes to believe in myself and personal power... Too scared to step out of my comfort zone sometimes, But hey that is HUMAN...

    Not exactly depressed.

    I feel in a low, anxious mood. I'm not sure what it is about. Maybe it's Christmas coming and I'm not ready. Maybe it's being poor. Maybe it's feeling a bit unsure about this new relationship I'm in. Maybe it's my hormones, I think I get a bit down at this time of the month. I...

    I'm loosing all my friends

    and I just feel so alone. Just when it seems like things are getting better something worse happens. I honestly just feel so alone even my family isn't there for me. The worst part is nobody knows I cry every night& all of this is really killing me inside. I just wish I could...

    Ever since I was a kid I've cried myself to

    sleep almost every night. People don't know how sensitive I actually am and I pretend I don't care. Nobody knows this about me. Everyone sees me as the happiest person ever but it's not true. A few weeks ago I was so hurt that I was seriously considering suicide. But then I...

    This Is The Worst Feeling Ever

    Why do I find myself feeling so depressed, being swallowed by a black and hopeless void that continues to consume me? I'm so depressed right now it sucks. I've had a long and busy week so that's part of it I'm sure. Right now I feel like absolute crap and I am so grateful that it...

    I've been doing good lately

    but today has just been horrible. So far everyone has made me feel worse throughout the day. I don't want to feel like this. I just want to give up.

    Recently I've been feeling a deep depression

    which is starting to take its toll. I feel this way because a girl who I care for dearly thinks I'm a stalker and a creep. Also, a lot of the people I talk to everyday misunderstand me and think of me as eccentric. I just don't know what to do. I feel like I can't talk to people...

    Hello everyone, My name is Danny,

    I'm 32 yo I'm feeling pretty depressed. I'm feeling this way (mostly) because I live in a very messed up and poor country. More than that, I'm paralyzed from the chest down (for about 19 years). There are No support groups and no one can help people like me, especially because...

    I had a friend, who was my biggest confidante.

    I loved him so much, but now the things are messed up. I hid something from him as I was afraid to lose him.. And now he has got to know that from somewhere else. He said that he wont leave me or our friendship, but he doesn't want any explanation. He said that this is my only...

    Each day is a struggle.

    If it weren't for my children I'd likely not get out of bed. They are the only thing that keeps me here on earth. If not for them and knowing they'd be orphans without me, I'd not be here.

    Its funny how people use the word 'depressed'

    so freely. Some dont even know the true meaning of depression yet they seem to be saying they are depressed like its the same as the word sad. Being depressed isn't just a one off thing. Truthfully. I dont know if I am depressed. I'm always sad. And it feels like I'm just...

    I recently broke up with my ex

    and I just found she cheated on me and now she is happily either the person they cheated with and I'm just left here alone. It doesn't really seem fair. She was the only one that that knows the real me and loved the bad parts of me. So I feel depressed and alone.
