I Fight Depression and Loneliness Everyday

do you fight depression? do you fight loneliness? then come and join people who know and understand... 62,146 People

    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 went to the graveyard yesterday.

    It was my mommy's birthday and I brought flowers for mommy's and daddy's grave. After I placed down the flowers I started to talk to my mommy and daddy about the things that I experiences lately. People were looking at me with sad faces. And were talking quietly. They said...

    I think that I have beat my depression!

    It's a great feeling to be able to throw a razor away and not give a damn.

    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...

    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...

    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 want someone who I can always go to just to

    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.

    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.

    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..

    I made the tough decision to end my

    relationship. It may end up being a good decision in the long run, but right now I feel like I've ripped my own heart out and I can only imagine how he feels. The most important person in my life is lost. I wish I could have made it work.

    I feel like I'm going in a downward spiral.

    Nothing ever seems to work out in my personal life. I just don't belong here. I wish I would just go away...erase me. No friends, family...just work & people there have their own lives. I just have solitude...all the time. People leave me. So now I just want to leave.
