    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...

    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...

    I am fighting it now.

    I was just reminded earlier of a friendship I had and lost. Of all the people I've met in my life, there are two whom I wish could come back. One would be impossible as he passed away four years ago. The other, she knows who she is. I yearn for her friendship once again.

    There's no way out of the darkness. The harder I try the deeper I sink. Nothing brings me out. I don't think anyone knows or maybe they just don't care. I stay quiet and in my room as much as possible lost in my own thoughts. I look for ways out. I don't have any friends. I can...

    At the end of the day no one gives a ****.

    Not friends, not family, everyone is selfish and self-absorbed. They don't really care, the only thing people give a **** about is their own ***. I feel like I have no one. No place to escape, no arms to run into. Nothing.

    and just floating around in it because of the state of mind I'm in. Instead of actually LIVING life and making things happen, I'm too tired, down and anti-social to be even bothered to do anything...and time is slipping through my fingers.
