    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"

    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...

    Hope?

    Loneliness is one of the more constricting emotions I experience. It’s the emptiness of being invisible in a room full of people. It’s the desolate feeling of struggling without stirring compassion. I see people move forward with their lives and I see those who are involved...

    I have Trigeminal Neuralgia,

    which is considered the most painful disorder known to science. I'd take contraction pains over this in a heartbeat. It's so rare, nobody can help me and nobody can understand. I detest my life, but unfortunately I have kids. After they are adults, I'm gone.

    life, I don't know why, but I become somewhat closed off, as if I go into protection mode.

    I was bullied for a long time

    The sad part about depression,

    is when u burst out crying alone in your room, and u realize that no one truly knows how unhappy u are bcz u don't know how to explain whats going on and no one wants to listen either..

    The only reason you're still here is

    because I'm hanging on so tight. I know you so desperately want to leave.. And that breaks my heart. I'm sorry but if you left, like everyone else has... I'd get bad again. I'd hit rock bottom again, and this time I wouldn't be able to get out of it.

    For you who don't understand what depression is

    or don't feel it: Depression is the empty feeling in your stomach. It is the feeling of wanting to cry almost every second of everyday. It is feeling lonely even when you're around people, and wanting to be alone and at the same time wanting to feel important. It's the nagging...
