    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...

    Ever just get annoyed with everyone's happiness,

    and want nothing more than to be alone? But once you're alone in your room, the tears start falling and they won't stop. And you can feel your energy seeping out through your tears, onto your pillow. Feeling lost, and alone, and broken. Wondering how it feels to smile. Because...

    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...

    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.

    I've fought depression my entire life. I'm at my lowest point now. Married, but I've never felt so alone. Being lonely increases the depression, but the depression says why both trying to get close with someone? They'll hurt you or disappear sooner, rather than later. I'm...

    I have friends—some—but either I'm too far away from them or they only make time for me when it's convenient. Or as a last resort. I sometimes get sick of feeling like I have almost no one to talk to. These days, there's only one person I really talk to a lot, and our talks...
