    Everyone is hurting or fighting some kind of

    battle, I hear it said a lot. Perhaps that is why I shrink back into myself when I am hurting and depressed. People are not equipped to help or love. There are so many messed up, wounded people walking around it's not funny. The older I get the more I see what we are really...

    I know it's not true,

    that there are so many people going what I go through, but sometimes I do feel like no one understands how much I'm secretly hurting inside.

    that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.

    I'm good at hiding it,

    Depression is living in a body

    that fights to survive, with a mind that tries to die.

    Struggling with myself today.

    I'm allowing myself to look in those dark corners, to feel the unexpressed. They say it will help. eventually. right now it just hurts and I feel like a caged tiger looking for a way out. I keep asking for help but I guess no one wants to hold the tigers hand. I don't blame them...

    Every noise gets my heart racing.

    Every touch is like fire. Every inhalation burns- I feel like I'm breathing in acid. Every step sends daggers through my body. Every waking moment is just this huge, monumental effort. I struggle to put on a brave face and act like everything is okay. I grit my teeth and get...

    My parents don't understand how bad my back

    pain can be. I get sick all the time from my tonsils, and to back it up I have this pain that makes it hard for me to use my lower back. I can work out, but I can't bend over or squat. It's really bizarre.

    Do I Always Need To Explain?

    I try so hard to be strong for those around me. To not show how much I'm hurting. When I need to break down, I always do it alone, out of sight, out of reach. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. But occasionally, I just break, like I did yesterday. One person, anyone...

    Last year, I finally understood

    that no one beside a few people will care in your whole life. I noticed that a lot of people here think by joinning those kind of groups or asking questions about why they feel that way, I see it as seeking attention. Maybe people were more caring 100 years ago but times have...

    I wish you could see what's wrong with me.

    it's all hidden, deep inside. Depression, anxiety, and a feeling that things are just not right. It is with these things I fight.

    When there is nothing to do,

    no reason to live, some people become reason for it. Then, this thought saves us that we are their love, their need, and a whole world to them. If we do not want to live, We have to live for them. When our souls cease to live, these people revive our dead spirits and give us...
