    DISSIPATE

    I don't find this linked to my past depression, but it's of course painful nonetheless. I go through bouts of severe loneliness and can't control them. I feel worthless, a burden to others. Sometimes I can't even smile. And then at times I'm the happiest person in the world. I...

    What is the point of my being here?

    All I do is hurt people. I dont mean to, but it is always happening. I have lost some very important people in my life. And i have hurt the ones i care about most. What is the point anymore? Why keep fighting to live, when it just hurts me and others?

    I sometimes feel like I am always the one

    asking how people are, listening to their problems and giving advice. It's like I don't exist when there's others about, everyone wants to talk to one another except me. I'm just there in the background listening, when I try to say something it's like they lose interest.
