do you fight depression? do you fight loneliness? then come and join people who know and understand... 52,404 People

    I live in a dark dark place.

    There's no way out of the darkness. The harder I try the deeper I sink. Nothing brings me out. I don't think anyone knows or maybe they just don't care. I stay quiet and in my room as much as possible lost in my own thoughts. I look for ways out. I don't have any friends. I can...

    This my first time posting an experience,

    so here it goes... I decided that I wanted to try dating again. I've been talking to this guy for the past 2 weeks. Everything was cool until some of his remarks about certain things rubbed me the wrong way. He didn't really like the fact that I was mixed (black, Jamaican, and...

    I'm so sick of letting time pass me by

    and just floating around in it because of the state of mind I'm in. Instead of actually LIVING life and making things happen, I'm too tired, down and anti-social to be even bothered to do anything...and time is slipping through my fingers.

    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.
