I Fight Depression and Loneliness Everyday

do you fight depression? do you fight loneliness? then come and join people who know and understand... 58,586 People

    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...

    The meds don't always help; there's different

    levels of depression. Theres crying, screaming, silence, times where you cant breathe, can't stand excess noise, etc...but not everyday is bad. In fact, there's many good days. They're just hard to remember because we focus too much on how to get over the bad ones. I'm feeling...

    Hi, I'm a 21 year old medical student living

    abroad, I was diagnosed with bipolar nearly 3 years ago, and before that I struggled a lot. I let it get quite far before my family told me to seek medical help, and finally gave me the courage to take a step forward. I've dealt with severe depression and bipolar for as long as...

    Yeah I know I'm strong.

    But I guess everyone think I'm a rock. no matter how much they beat, I don't get hurt. But no.. it isn't true. I just want to talk to a friend, someone who would listen and answer me patiently. Someone I know from some time. Someone who will sing 'I won't let you go' for me...

    There comes a time when giving up is the best

    option. Just give in to death. I'm weak, so it will do more good than bad. It's either I die or I make a mistake of hurting someone else. I'm done with conscious thought. I've given enough and I've served whatever purpose. Now all is left is when and how. Disappear.

    Letting go. The most resilient thing in this

    world is the human heart. It can break into a million pieces but it heals itself over time. It endures. The fragments from the pieces broken off transform into memories that also fade away. The mind is the heart's worst enemy. The reason is that it is rooted in reality. Seeing...

    I hate myself so much. My childhood & blame just eats at me... And destroys everything, including my peace of mind. I just want to rest. You know really rest. I don't want to kill myself. I do but I don't. I just don't see myself ever loving me.. It's such a struggle to breathe...

    The sad part about depression,

    is when u burst out crying alone in your room, and u realize that no one truly knows how unhappy u are bcz u don't know how to explain whats going on and no one wants to listen either..

    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?

    Forgetting, and simply not caring.

    Wanting but not getting. Trying and failing. Hiding but not running. Dying while still living.

    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...
