    You know when you're

    so depressed that you can't even move? And it feels like you're physically sick? And you just want to talk to someone about it, but you don't want to say anything to anyone? So instead of faking smiles and laughs and 'lol's you just keep to yourself, but you only feel worst...

    My Last Letter When I Was 14.

    When I was fourteen I was really depressed so I decided to kill myself. Before I died I wanted to leave a note to my only friend Karla and this is how it went: Stars like diamonds in the sky, They are the things that help me get by. They shine so bright in my eyes, They are the...

    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...

    I feel so alone right

    now that I can't even get out of bed. It's been this way all my life and I can't handle it much longer. I have severe suicidal thoughts and think why the hell not it's not like anyone would miss me. I am pretty much a lost cause.

    I find myself fighting tears in public.

    .. I find myself worrying over nothing... I find myself getting jealous when I know I shouldn't.... The thought of my mom and siblings are huge triggers... Not because of them.. But because I fear I'm never good enough.... Even if told that I am... Will it ever go away?

    The past 6 years have been a constant battle of

    depression, loneliness, paranoia Etcetc. I'm in that time of my life where I either want to give up completely or work hard to get motivation and fix it. There's days where I say I just wish I wasn't here, but it's not that, I just wish I was happy instead.

    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...
