    What doesn't kill you,

    makes you wish you were dead. What doesn't destroy you, leaves you broken instead. I'm not okay and I'm not alright. Who will fix me now? Save me from myself, don't let me go. --BMTH

    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...

    I've been feeling what I call depression

    for a month or two now... I guess nothing serious. I used to be pretty joyful, and I still act like I am, but every time I get a chance to stop and think to myself... I just end up sad. I can't do anything to cheer me up either, no matter what I try to do. It's like a part of me...

    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

    I fail to see why I should continue living

    besides my loved ones there is no reason for me to be around. I don't feel like I want or need to be here.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
