    Everyday for the past couple years has sucked

    for me. I always feel like an outcast compared to everyone else. I just wish things were better than they are.

    I am writing this. Cause I wanna die.

    no I won't kill myself. life is just too precious. But I'm tired of thinking about dying. I'm tired of being lonely and depressed and I'm just frustrated and sick and angry. I hate controlling my tears. but I hate crying. I just wanna burst out. rip myself apart. That.. right...

    How can there be so many people on the planet

    and so many lonely. I smile but inside I'm screaming HELP ME! Just care...Hold me, love me. Don't just say hello and keep walking. Don't tell me you can't give me what I need, when I ask for a hug. Don't ask how I'm doing when you don't care. Don't be there only when it's...

    Today, for the first time in a long time,

    I felt a glimmer of hopelessness, again. I've been doing so much better in the last year. I've learned so much about myself, I've discovered what's important to me, I've been making my own decisions, and I've even made some friends. However, in the last week or so, there have...

    I've been feeling more lonely

    and depressed the past week. I know I have to accept who I am and things that have happened. It feels like I can't trust anybody. It feels like I live in a world of selfish people. Even when I'm told good things about myself I have a hard time believing it and I keep wondering...

    Depression really is a *****.

    These last couple of weeks have been a living hell. The darkest moments in my life, and my parents and even my brothers are mad at me for how i have been. They think i chose to be depressed, no ine chooses this. I dont know how to talk to them, i dont even want to.

    Sometimes I feel as if I don't belong on this

    planet. I feel older than I am and as if my soul has been around for a very long time. I wish I could be spirited away to the dark reaches of space because that is where I belong.

    My Life

    I'm perceived as the funny guy. The guy that makes jokes. In a way it's a facade. I use it to hide who I am. What's inside of me. I appreciate humor so when I talk to people I use it. I'm very creative. They say a poor life gifts you with arts. In a way I should be thankful... My...

    Telling someone with depression to "just be

    happy" or "just smile" is like tossing a kid with no arms into a lake and saying "just swim"

    I wish that I at least have someone there

    for me, but I have no one. I fight depression and I'm lonely. What's sad is that I feel more comfortable alone. When ever I'm near someone, I feel insecure. I don't like the feeling, so I separate myself from everyone close to me.

    The last couple of days have been rough.

    Each day I look out my window and see the gray cold sky. The feeling of emptiness deep inside my soul paints my day. Looking in a mirror I try to see my former self and not the aging and Parkinson's person who is looking back. I wish I could stop thinking so I can make it...

    Sometime I feel like I don't matter to anyone.

    I hear it everyday, maybe what people say about me are true. It just hurts me so much that whenever I like I'm on the mend, there is always someone to knock me back down again. It's a never ending battle.

    How I Beat Depression

    First off, I want to say that I'm not a doctor, nor would I want to be. More and more, it just seems they are pawns of Big Pharma, handing out prescriptions like candy. This is NOT right! Our bodies, minds, and spirits are nourished by food, exercise, interaction with others, and...

    Growing up I was always a loner & an outcast.

    It bothered me a lot but as I grew older, I got used to it. I did have "friends" (more like acquaintances), but they each had their own "BFF". I was hardly ever invited to their outings...I would have to ask myself. I always felt like an outcast whenever I did go out with them...

    Ever have a day where you want to just take the

    day off from life? Curl up into the fetal position and disappear, cry, yell, and get all other emotions out of you, in hopes that you may feel normal for a little while?
