    Back to the start. I have a medical condition

    that means I can't drink alcohol. I stopped in jan but fell off the wagon (so to speak because I wasn't or am not an alcoholic). I broke my neck a month ago and although I'll be ok I am off work for at least 3 months. Being depressed drew me back to alcohol. I cared so...

    Being alone is the biggest trigger I have.

    .. I can't be by myself and have nothing to do... Because once my mind wanders... It's not coming back... I've been clean for almost 2 months... Even being in my bed alone all I want to do is cry. For no apparent reason... Just break down and cry... And crying over nothing leads...

    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...

    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...

    The past 6 years have been a constant battle of

    depression, loneliness, paranoia Etcetc. I'm in that time of my life where I either want to give up completely or work hard to get motivation and fix it. There's days where I say I just wish I wasn't here, but it's not that, I just wish I was happy instead.

    I sought help and it turned me around. Whenever I have negative thoughts I say "NO! STOP IT!". It really worked for me. That and Cymbalta.

    The thing with depression is

    that unless you have it, or have had it, you can never fully understand what it is like. This is my way of explaining it. Depression is like you have been thrown into the middle of the ocean, but you've never learnt how to swim. There are people around you screaming at you to...
