    Ashamed To Be Depressed

    I never labeled myself as depressed before. However, even if I am not clinically depressed, the fact that I can barely get out of bed several days a week makes it more or less clear.Unhappiness, dark thoughts and feelings have been a constant throughout my life. I got used to...

    I feel as if I'm fighting depression.

    I have so much in my life going on. I sometimes hate myself. There is so much I haven't told people, the ones I love. I used to hurt myself. I just...I don't know anymore...can I be this strong? Or is it just another phase?

    It's a mind-set game we are playing with

    ourselves and our minds are winning right now... They are turning us into a "puddle of nothingless souls" we need to fight our minds, so we too can be happy again.

    For those of us who share how depressed we are,

    ( I do that quite a lot ) I wonder whether in seeking help whether we are indulging more and more in our present state of mind. Just a thought.

    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...

    Hope?
