    The meds don't always help; there's different

    levels of depression. Theres crying, screaming, silence, times where you cant breathe, can't stand excess noise, etc...but not everyday is bad. In fact, there's many good days. They're just hard to remember because we focus too much on how to get over the bad ones. I'm feeling...

    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...

    How can there be so many people on the planet

    and so many lonely. I smile but inside I'm screaming HELP ME! Just care...Hold me, love me. Don't just say hello and keep walking. Don't tell me you can't give me what I need, when I ask for a hug. Don't ask how I'm doing when you don't care. Don't be there only when it's...

    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...

    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"

    Why is it that some people

    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..

    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...

    Forgetting, and simply not caring.

    Wanting but not getting. Trying and failing. Hiding but not running. Dying while still living.

    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...

    It's difficult being depressed.

    It's also difficult being alone. Combine the two, and they have a proliferating effect on each other. I don't feel close to anyone. Sometimes I think that if I were, that I would be better. But, alas, I've been close to someone before, and, while it helped, didn't solve any of...

    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.
