    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...

    When I find out someone I have a crush on is in

    a relationship. I just get really sad, avoid them like the plague and try to forget and disregard all my feelings. Happened in high school with this guy who always teased me, I guess after awhile I started to like him...but eventually I met his gf and I was severely depressed...

    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...

    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.

    Being in high school is

    so hard. I don't have any friends. I feel like I don't belong. I hope to make friends here. Lately I have been thinking about suicide but I'm trying my hardest not to act on how I feel

    Sometimes I wonder what I can do that'll make a

    difference anymore. Sometimes I just wanna be left alone but I fear the consequences of telling people to stop talking to me. Shouldn't I have a choice? I'm forced to surround myself with ticking time bombs, people who will explode any minute. I just want to return to how it was...

    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...

    Depression

    How I know I'm out of the dark cloud of depression, is listening to music. That's also how I can tell I'm going into the lonely sadness. I turn the radio off when in the car. I compare depression to having a migrain headache. You can tell you are going to be over taken by this...

    Hello. I have been feeling very hopeless

    and depressed lately. I'm sick of seeing how other people seem to have better lives than me. I'm only fourteen years old, and I have absolutely no one out there to talk to who will hear me and understand me. I don't have any brothers or sisters, or any real friends. I wish that...

    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...

    It Doesn't Mean I Am Depressed

    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.
