    I wish for you: A good drink.

    A strong roof over head. A soft warm bed. And may you be an hour in heaven before the devil knows your dead.

    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...

    There hasn't been a single day I haven't been

    depressed in past 4-5 months. No matter how good the day is, I will end my day in the bed with my pillows, alone and depressed. Depression has numbed my body and mind. I am unable to do creative stuff anymore. Or start conversations. I want to die.

    I wish I had a best friend

    and I have friends but I wonder if they're truly my friends. Everyone has their own best friends and I wish I had that one person who considered me their number one. I try to just focus on the fact that I'm lucky to even have friends but then I get paranoid that they're not...

    Right now, I'm doing nothing with my life.

    I don't know what to study, since I've started and abandoned two graduations already. I don't feel like working, cause it involves meeting new people and creating expectations around these people that will frustrate me eventually. It's hard for me to make friends cause I don't...

    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...

    why I feel the way I do I still believe it is not ALL me, but rather the people closest to me making feel inadequate, and bringing my spirits down. I've done self-help. I've done therapy. And I've done medication. Medication was the best choice, for me, and provided the...

    I've had a rocky relationship with my daddy

    this past year. He's never had to deal with a child with so many mental illnesses and most days he just doesn't know what to do. Which makes him have bursts of anger because he's so frustrated with life. But today was so very different than all the other days. We weren't...

    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...

    but didn't get the help I needed until I was well into college. Went on Citalopram for a year and then Paxil for another year. Went off Paxil completely about 2 months ago, it's been very difficult. During the withdrawal I broke it off with some friends who just clearly did not...

    I am really struggling to find a reason to keep pushing, to not just end it all in an instant. It seems like this world we live in beats you down far more than it lifts you up. Sickness, crime, death, heartbreak, crappy jobs with low salaries. Why do we subject ourselves to this...

    There's no way out of the darkness. The harder I try the deeper I sink. Nothing brings me out. I don't think anyone knows or maybe they just don't care. I stay quiet and in my room as much as possible lost in my own thoughts. I look for ways out. I don't have any friends. I can...

    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...
