    I mean I do not like it

    sometimes I react to things by getting angry.

    its a defense mechanism to guard of the loneliness within. it also works by pushing people away. I obviously regret losing my temper later and it eats me up inside. some people are good at making things right the next moment. wish I could learn to let go and do that.

    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..

    I was put on a med called Citalopram a few days

    ago for depression and anxiety but haven't taken any yet as the side effects scare me a bit. I've read some bad things about it but I know that I should take it, at least until I start therapy. I am pretty nervous about what effect it will have on me so was just wondering if...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I don't know what to do anymore.

    I've been battling depression for about seven years, and it's always a on/off kinda of thing. But I've had anxiety for as long as I remember and obviously, the two things are linked together. It starts as an anxiety attack and it kinda goes downhill from there. I would just...

    I wanted to wait until I was on vacation

    so that there would be less worry. Now I can't help but sit here and ask myself why am I waiting? Why prolong the inevitable? Why not just do it now? I have everything I need. So why am I stalling? Why am I still breathing?

    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...

    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'm so depressed and lonely right now.

    Lost any joy I had with whatever games I own. And nothing nice to watch on TV. No friends or girlfriend to call. Nothing to do, just lying on my bed trying to decide whether to sleep or get up and do something. Why am I typing this? don't know, something to do I suppose.
