    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've been dealing with depression

    for as long as I can remember and was recently diagnosed with bipolar type 2. Everyday is a struggle and lately it feels like I'm just drowning in it all.

    Embarrassed much? Yes.

    It is embarrassing, isn't it? It is embarrassing to be ruled by feelings such as sadness, emptiness, fear, low self esteem.. 45 years old and I find myself starting over again. What once came too easily, now seems unreachable. I know. I KNOW that it is me stopping me. I know...

    Ever just get annoyed with everyone's happiness,

    and want nothing more than to be alone? But once you're alone in your room, the tears start falling and they won't stop. And you can feel your energy seeping out through your tears, onto your pillow. Feeling lost, and alone, and broken. Wondering how it feels to smile. Because...

    If you take a look at Kat Williams,

    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...

    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..

    At the end of the day no one gives a ****.

    Not friends, not family, everyone is selfish and self-absorbed. They don't really care, the only thing people give a **** about is their own ***. I feel like I have no one. No place to escape, no arms to run into. Nothing.

    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...

    But it's not like I can't crack a joke about it.

    It's a meandering point for me. The thing about it, for me,  is not about sulking and laying in bed all day while Wagner plays on the background but about the regular moodswings that become so bloody intense you can't focus on anything else. Everyone has self-doubt, self...
