    everything is falling apart

    and I'm not sure if I care anymore. I'm so numb I don't feel a thing. I don't know if it's worse to feel to much or nothing at all.

    I am broken. I am sick.

    My soul is torn, shattered, I'm needy. That's ok. Because I was never raised. I was never cultivated. It's ok. I'll be ok. I think.....I just want to be fixed in the ways that I've been so broken. I didn't do this on my own. I know that "my life is in my hands" but if...

    I don't have any friends.

    My mom doesn't work but she is always talking to her friends. My dad is at work the whole day. So I just sit in my room all day, lonely and listening to music. I guess I have my dog but he doesn't keep much of a conversation going. He is a great at cuddling though.

    Embarrassed much? Yes.

    It is embarrassing, isn't it? It is embarrassing to be ruled by feelings such as sadness, emptiness, fear, low self esteem.. 45 years old and I find myself starting over again. What once came too easily, now seems unreachable. I know. I KNOW that it is me stopping me. I know...

    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"

    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.

    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...

    that I can think of is clausterphobic. Today that is how I was feeling. I could be in an open field and I would still feel clausterphobic. It's a horrible feeling. I just want to get out of wherever I am and just go. Go somewhere that doesn't exist probably. When I was a child...

    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...

    Know that feeling when you pour energy into

    someone and it's like filling a black hole, constantly grabbing and pulling in whatever you toss at it, never satisfied? You're chasing something fleeting, like dust through a sunbeam? All you wish for are answers to why, but you know you'll get nothing but quiet, cold silence...

    I have never been in a relationship.

    I have friends but they are not always around because they have their own lives. I pretend to be fine but I am the loneliest person I know. Sometimes all I need is for someone to hold me and say "it is going to be okay... I got you".

    Sometimes the loneliness is crushing.

    I'm told that I'm pretty and that I have a great personality. Yet I'm alone. Sooo... yeah. I miss intimacy. I miss feeling special. I miss sex. Idk how to describe my feeling. I'm starting to hate my bed. I sleep on the couch so I can feel like someone is there smh.

    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?
