    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...

    I've been fighting this shot

    since I was 13, I'm 25 now. Everybody always says thing won't be this way forever. I'm starting to feel that line is a bunch of bull. I'm really getting tired of this fight. I'm ready to stop fighting, it really isn't worth it anymore.

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

    You call me stupid? I fake a smile everyday

    and you believe it. I force a laugh and you think I'm happy. Who's stupid now?

    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 miss my boys. I am

    so very alone after my divorce and haven't seen my boys in three years. It's not that I don't care about them, it's that they live over 1,000 miles away and I can't afford to visit them. They are growing up without me and I hurt without them. Days like today I walk the thin line...

    Y'know the Bre'er Rabbit story of the tar baby?

    You can choose not to fight it & realize it's a fake. Is the first feeling you notice necessarily truest? I've learned WELL-BEING can be a choice more easily as you REGULARLY PRACTICE some study. Thankfully not proudly, your friend.

    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...

    me. I haven't spoken to them in four years. I've never kissed a girl. I confessed my love to my best friend of four years a week ago. She ran screaming. I have a ****** job and come home to an empty studio I can't even afford. Tonight I'm wondering what is the point. Why get up...

    Events that suck, making your life tougher,

    don't always cause addiction to self-pity. In fact a mind sharpened by adversity is a Blessed tool. Again, build good habits.

    Hi I'm 17 and very confused.

    I used to be the happiest person ever, everyone would always say how every time they saw me I was smiling and I even got yelled at my my coaches for smiling too much. But my smile wasn't exactly because I was so happy it was just something I did out of nervousness and insecurity...

    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...

    And I want to kill myself a lot.

    I hate myself so much. My childhood & blame just eats at me... And destroys everything, including my peace of mind. I just want to rest. You know really rest. I don't want to kill myself. I do but I don't. I just don't see myself ever loving me.. It's such a struggle to breathe...

    I went to the graveyard yesterday.

    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 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...

    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.

    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 could curl up and die a homeless bum,

    or drink myself to death, but I choose to read and write at the library instead. The wealth of human creativity is my addiction, my church, my purpose. Knowing humans survive disaster we can't imagine keeps me humble and thankful for what I do have.
