    I just want to get as far away from society

    and the bullshit of everyday life. Maybe go up to Alaska and live off the land

    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...

    How can there be so many people on the planet

    and so many lonely. I smile but inside I'm screaming HELP ME! Just care...Hold me, love me. Don't just say hello and keep walking. Don't tell me you can't give me what I need, when I ask for a hug. Don't ask how I'm doing when you don't care. Don't be there only when it's...

    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 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".

    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.

    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...

    I'm tired of people telling me to get over it.

    "Just sleep it off, you won't be sad tomorrow." Depression isn't just about being sad. Sadness is about 15% of it. 35% is a mixture of guilt, anxiety, isolation, self-loathing, and hopelessness. The last 50% is the emotional equivalent of watching paint dry. I spend most of my...

    I fight depression, PTSD,

    anxiety, and loneliness daily and it seems as though man do not care. However, I know that God cares and will give me strength to conqueror the inevitable.

    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"

    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?

    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...

    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...
