    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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"

    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 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.

    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'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.
