    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 need to go to bed earlier.

    My depression and loneliness kicks in every night. I try to talk to people about it but no one cares. Tonight was the kicker. I told my friend (who knows that I suffer with this) that I was going to drink an entire bottle of wine and cry silently. His response was aww I would...

    I want someone who I can always go to just to

    talk or hang out, maybe even doing boring stuff with me because they care about me and like me, not because they have an image to keep up. Anybody live in nyc and want to meet new people? we should get a group of people to meet, hang and become close to.

    I know nobody enjoy talking to me

    or having me around. I don't blame them for that. But when they say they care and act like they don't give a **** on me, then I become tired of all those lies. I don't need to hear all of these cliches, I just need you to prove them. I'm friendless, and the people I care about...

    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...

    As the older kid in my house,

    my mother expects me to be the New house support since my dad left us months ago. I got a job, I teach English classes for adults, and I'm doing fine, but my mom doesn't think that. She says that I do nothing, and I quote "you're one lazy ******* who can't even get thinner...

    I'm so depressed and lonely right now.

    Lost any joy I had with whatever games I own. And nothing nice to watch on TV. No friends or girlfriend to call. Nothing to do, just lying on my bed trying to decide whether to sleep or get up and do something. Why am I typing this? don't know, something to do I suppose.

    I went to the graveyard yesterday.

    It was my mommy's birthday and I brought flowers for mommy's and daddy's grave. After I placed down the flowers I started to talk to my mommy and daddy about the things that I experiences lately. People were looking at me with sad faces. And were talking quietly. They said...

    How can there be so many people on the planet

    and so many lonely. I smile but inside I'm screaming HELP ME! Just care...Hold me, love me. Don't just say hello and keep walking. Don't tell me you can't give me what I need, when I ask for a hug. Don't ask how I'm doing when you don't care. Don't be there only when it's...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    In a room, full of so many people,

    I always feel like I'm alone. Though I hear voices, and see faces, I am convinced that I am alone half of the time. I don't want this feeling anymore. I can't take it anymore.

    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"
