    I feel like I'm fading.

    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 used to fight depression

    and anxiety, but now I think I'm just tired of fighting. I want to release my husband from our marital contract so he can return home to his mom and kids and grand kids. I want to find a family for each of my children. I say a family for each because they can't be in a room...

    I want to die but don't have the balls to do it.

    I'm sick of being a 29 year old failure who achieved nothing in life. I just wish to be killed

    I fight depression, PTSD,

    anxiety, and loneliness daily and it seems as though man do not care. However, I know that God cares and will give me strength to conqueror the inevitable.

    rn. I moved to a new city 6 months ago and I still haven't made friends particularly because I'm too shy and I don't want to be rejected. I spent the 15 years of my life in the previous city and had wonderful friends who I thought loved me and I loved them back just as much...

    I'm tired of people telling me to get over it.

    "Just sleep it off, you won't be sad tomorrow." Depression isn't just about being sad. Sadness is about 15% of it. 35% is a mixture of guilt, anxiety, isolation, self-loathing, and hopelessness. The last 50% is the emotional equivalent of watching paint dry. I spend most of my...

    I have never been in a relationship.

    I have friends but they are not always around because they have their own lives. I pretend to be fine but I am the loneliest person I know. Sometimes all I need is for someone to hold me and say "it is going to be okay... I got you".

    Ever have a day where you want to just take the

    day off from life? Curl up into the fetal position and disappear, cry, yell, and get all other emotions out of you, in hopes that you may feel normal for a little while?

    Well today has been pretty bad.

    During the past week there were times I was actually happy! It has been sooo long since I was happy. Yesterday and especially today I have come crashing down,.. Wishing I was dead, never born, or just killed in combat back in 2004. Ugh! Will this never end!

    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...

    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"

    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...

    Sometimes the loneliness is crushing.

    I'm told that I'm pretty and that I have a great personality. Yet I'm alone. Sooo... yeah. I miss intimacy. I miss feeling special. I miss sex. Idk how to describe my feeling. I'm starting to hate my bed. I sleep on the couch so I can feel like someone is there smh.
