    I am not depressed. I can still smile at pretty

    things. And laugh when jokes are funny. I can still talk to people. And enjoy nice days. But when I go inside, and I'm alone, There is something broken. And I fall into a sadness so sweet that it engulfs me. I look in the mirror. And I don't like what I see. And the tears...

    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...

    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"

    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...

    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 don't know how to tell you I'm broken without

    feeling needy. I don't know how to open up without feeling judged. I just need you to see that I'm hurting without telling you because my words are bleeding out of my mouth, waiting for you to stitch me up and make me fine. Although I know it's not your job and you're better...

    Well, I have a bestie but I've no group of people to hang out or unwind with after university and work and etc. I mean it's sorta strange even for me - having only one person to have fun with. I've never been invited to join groupmates' get-togethers, parties and so on. But the...

    I am broken. I am sick.

    My soul is torn, shattered, I'm needy. That's ok. Because I was never raised. I was never cultivated. It's ok. I'll be ok. I think.....I just want to be fixed in the ways that I've been so broken. I didn't do this on my own. I know that "my life is in my hands" but if...

    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 hate my life so much.

    When I was younger I was bullied every day in school due to my shyness. They never told me why... they just hit me and called me names. I never had friends because of that either. Nobody wanted to help me to save themselves from the bullies. After a while I had a boyfriend. But...

    I feel so isolated from the everyone else.

    All the people who were once my friends are experiencing the beginning of their adulthood with many friends and new experiences. I feel so detached and I've yet to feel happy about living. It's getting harder. I try and try and try and I either get used or pushed away.

    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...

    The bouts of depression is like spasm.

    They come and they go. During the onset of depression, the attacks are mild and the interval between two attacks are huge. As the person gets into the actual depressive state, the interval becomes shorter and hence the attacks are intense and vivid. I would like to equate...
