do you fight depression? do you fight loneliness? then come and join people who know and understand... 48,794 People

    Sure, I can fight the day with a smile,

    post funny posts, and create warmth in others from my smiley, sweet personality. But as soon as that door closes, I'm no longer me. I'm no longer the me I once loved so much. I'll cry for no reason. I'll have anxiety attacks. I'll blame myself. I'll shame myself. I'll remind...

    The thing with depression is

    that unless you have it, or have had it, you can never fully understand what it is like. This is my way of explaining it. Depression is like you have been thrown into the middle of the ocean, but you've never learnt how to swim. There are people around you screaming at you to...

    Hi, I just want to say

    that I am here for anyone who needs someone to listen or someone to give them advice. I will be honest and I will be myself. I know how you feel and it sucks so much. It hurts so much, feeling all alone with so much feelings yet so much emptiness. I just know that I don't want...

    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...

    I wish I could just turn my sadness off.

    It consumes me everytime I am by myself and I want to cry. I always want to cry because I feel like nobody understands me. I only have one friend that I know I can trust no matter what and I can't stand being with my family because my little brothers always get told how proud 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...

    Not physically, but instead, inside I was dying. I remember the exact moment. I was terrified b/c I knew what it was and I wanted that feeling to go away. Yet at age 31, it is still inside of me and refuses to let go, You wouldn't believe the unbelievable amounts of sorrow you...

    There is such a huge difference between being

    I embrace the smiles, the laughs, the “I’m okay” feeling. People might think it’s silly that I need to document when I smile but I have to because I have to remind myself that another day could be a brighter day. A more happier day. And a picture of me smiling proves...

    There's no way out of the darkness. The harder I try the deeper I sink. Nothing brings me out. I don't think anyone knows or maybe they just don't care. I stay quiet and in my room as much as possible lost in my own thoughts. I look for ways out. I don't have any friends. I can...
