    I battled depression

    or more like I still am but it's more at a borderline now. My experience would be that depression feels a little like a hydra, you cut out the sadness but two more grow back. I am luckier than most people because some of them have never had a happy memory. I think depression...

    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...

    Hello, my name is Ike

    and I am 14. I have spent 11 years of my life in china never getting a chance to talk to anyone but my family. Then the best day of my life at least I thought it was. My parents told me we were moving back to America. Mind you that was 2 years ago and I was 12. When we moved...

    Just listening to my friends talk about their

    boyfriends disgusts me. While I sit here and think about which bunny cage my bunny would like most. No one realizes that I don't give a flying **** if your boyfriends moms cousins brothers daughter just got a ******* pony. Okay? Okay.

    Cloudy eyes, can't seem to shine,

    You're reaching that final line. The lights are bright and you're unaware, You ask yourself if you would ever dare, Whether if you did, anyone would care. You look at your arms, You don't know how to feel calm. You hold your blade, You curse yourself and make marks that'll take...

    Honestly, I don't know what to say about myself.

    I have friends, yes. I hang out with them.They like me, they enjoy my company. I've gone so far in comparison to last year. Without a doubt, I am loved. Despite the fact that I hang out with someone different enjoys my company on a near daily basis, I still feel--strangely empty...

    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...

    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...

    The sad part about depression,

    is when u burst out crying alone in your room, and u realize that no one truly knows how unhappy u are bcz u don't know how to explain whats going on and no one wants to listen either..

    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.
