    for the past two months. I got a puppy. He's very funny and he's full of energy. He's always so happy to see me and he likes to follow me around. I don't feel alone anymore. I feel... popular. (sounds stupid lol) Dogs are very loyal and loving creatures. I finally have someone...

    I honestly have the worst luck.

    I have always lacked and yearned for little things that people take for granted. I am an only child off a single parent (my mom). My dad and his family basically have hated my existence so I don't talk to them. Me and mom have a love hate relationship. And my mom has no...

    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...

    than depression, but I have not been in a good mood (overall) for the past month or so. I've tried reaching out to "friends" who claim they're there for me, but whenever I need them, they're nowhere to be found. So, I've wanted to make new friends, but that seems (nearly...

    I joined this site simply to say something

    about how I have been feeling lately, to finally say something about anything that is truly going on behind the mask I wear everywhere. It's simply another attempt to communicate with another through my desperation.

    I have been suicidal

    for years now. I think about it every day. I used to cut, and at first I did it for attention. I wanted somebody to notice and to care. That passed when people did know, and still didn't care. Whenever I tried to talk to someone about it, they would either say 'I'm sorry you...

    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...

    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...

    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...
