    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..

    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...

    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"

    Depression, the old time companion I can not

    seem to shake. Got me practicing my happy face, faking interest, forcing laughs and making a liar of me. Robbing me of joy, draning my energy , sucking away my ambition and stealing my hope.

    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.

    this need to blame something or someone whenever something goes wrong. I have to admit it's easier to take it out on someone and blame them for it. And when there's no one to blame, we blame on something else like illnesses. Basically, instead of taking responsibilities and...

    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?

    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...

    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...

    talk or hang out, maybe even doing boring stuff with me because they care about me and like me, not because they have an image to keep up. Anybody live in nyc and want to meet new people? we should get a group of people to meet, hang and become close to.
