    Trying To Love...

    Falling in love...or being in love when you suffer from depression seems like a monumental task to the person suffering from it... It takes an incredible amount of trust. You have to look at yourself, wade through all the negative self talk that you hear in your head all the...

    I am broken. I am sick.

    My soul is torn, shattered, I'm needy. That's ok. Because I was never raised. I was never cultivated. It's ok. I'll be ok. I think.....I just want to be fixed in the ways that I've been so broken. I didn't do this on my own. I know that "my life is in my hands" but if...

    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 live in a dark dark place.

    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...

    but didn't get the help I needed until I was well into college. Went on Citalopram for a year and then Paxil for another year. Went off Paxil completely about 2 months ago, it's been very difficult. During the withdrawal I broke it off with some friends who just clearly did not...

    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...

    I have completely fallen apart.

    I don't know what to do anymore. I have lost all hope. I can't talk to any of my friends. It will solve nothing. There is no way to describe the despair that I am feeling. I need someone to hold me and to mean it. No one ever will.

    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...
