    For you who don't understand what depression is

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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".

    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"

    it's just that things in my view just aren't

    great. Sometimes I feel like I can't go through my frustrations and I can't be with other people. Oh well, I think being alone is the only thing I can do even though it gets to me a bit.
