    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...

    I hate how when I cry,

    my dad comes over and asks what's wrong. If I cry or yell he just calls me crazy. How can I tell him anything when he's mad at me for being a messed up child.

    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...

    Do not ask me 'how are you?

    ' Ask me about my soul. Ask me what state my soul is in. Then you will see the real true me. And I will tell you that it is submerged in darkest, hands stretched upwards, mouth gasping for air, looking towards the light with the mask of a smile still plastered on my face with...

    I keep trying to be happy.

    But, I get these moments when my hands shake and all I want to do is bury myself deep into ground and hope nobody pulls me out. I sometimes miss the feeling of cutting myself. I miss being heartbroken and feeling like my chest has been hollowed out. I miss it becuase I at least...

    On the one hand, I want people in my life.

    On the other hand, I'm afraid of people hurting me so I rather don't let anyone get close. My options: I can either stay alone (what I'm doing right now) and still be afraid of people, or I could also start socialising and be even more afraid. It would be awesome if people were...

    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...

    This might sound stupid

    and selfish, but I hate the feeling of not knowing if people are thinking of me when I'm not in front of them. Sometimes, I feel like no one thinks of me and I'm kind of just there. I feel like i just blend into the backround and I never catch anyones eye. Sometimes, I want to...

    I find it funny how my mother can identify

    if others have depression due to them waking up every day and going out with friends, yet when I just wake up every day and don't even go out, she thinks it's normal. She doesn't even realise I think about suicide every day. I don't even care anymore. Whether I live or die, it...

    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"

    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.

    Why does she abandon me

    when I mostly needed her, I've put up with all her **** for 5 years and she just breaks up with you and and abandons me, suddenly when I move on and have a new person in my life she is trying to win me back.

    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...

    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?

    for my flight home, I was groggily checking my bags and making sure I had packed everything just right. We left for the airport at 3:30 in the morning and I had got about an hour of sleep before we headed out. With shaking hands I grabbed for my Xanax and began to take several...
