    When I was thirteen, something happened

    and I changed my mindset overnight. I used to be the favorite of my family because I was obedient and just all-around nice, and I have been told that I look really innocent and angelic that no one would probably think I'll do something bad. But because I'm a really sensitive...

    At this point i am mentally destroyed.

    I find my thoughts to be torturing me at all times. Like during school most people look outside to admire the sky. I mostly look outside and think if i jump out this window will it kill me on impact. I mean I find it so pathetic i just dont know anymore

    The feeling of depression: You wake up in the

    morning, wish you didn’t wake up at all (why couldn’t I just continue to sleep…?). You come to a realization you are here again, it is another day. The shape of your mouth wears to some degree that of a reversed smile. Life purpose is missing. You turn on the TV and try...

    I woke up depressed today.

    I tried to ignore the awful feeling and have a good day. That didn't work because it felt like every time I talked I got bad comments. The day is only half over and I want to give up.

    I have struggled with depression

    since I was 12 or so (I am 31). Even with meds, it's getting worse. I can't function. It takes everything I have to get out of bed and eat something for the first time in two days. I lost my job because of it, lost my husband, and most importantly, I've lost myself. Or have I...

    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...

    Once upon a time I thought suicide was selfish

    Somedays are worse than others.

    Somedays I'm more frustrated than depressed. I think those are the days I'm closer to identifying what's wrong with me, so I guess those could be seen as "good" days, just depends what you're looking for I guess. Happy or progressive? I want to feel a little less lonely. It's...

    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...
