    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...

    The never ending darkness.

    The never ending hurt. It never ends. I want it to just be ok, I want to feel love. But after all this I've learned to love the hate, since hate is all I get.

    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...

    Sometimes it's hard to pretend to be happy

    other times I'm surprised at how good I am at it...they think all is well but they don't hear the self loathe in my head they don't see the scars on wrist and those who do don't understand my reason. It's pointless they say but it doesn't feel that way it's like a release of all...

    I don't know why I feel depressed.

    There were some aspects in my life and I thought I'd be a lot happier if I managed these things the way it should be. After successfully managing these aspects in my life, I still feel depressed and lonely. Most of the day I'm facing the laptop or if not I just staying silent...

    So this is despair: when I can't think of a

    place I'd rather be, and I'd rather be anywhere else but here. I wonder what it would be like to cease to exist on this spot. Would it be worse than sitting here?

    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...

    In my opinion, most people

    who suffer from depression have really big hearts. We love everyone around us. We want to help everyone. We want to be there for everyone. We do what we can to make sure others are happy. We notice things, things that most won't. We are a good judge of character. We have a...

    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...

    You know that feeling?

    When you're just waiting to get home into your room, close the door, fall into bed. Just let everything out that you kept in all day. That feeling of desperation. You're tired. Tired of everything, tired of nothing. You just want someone to be there and tell you it's okay. But...

    I cry, but no one hears.

    No one knows, how hard I fight to put the smile on my face. No one understands why it is so hard some days, I don't even know why. And that is why they don't understand because I don't understand.
