I Fight Depression and Loneliness Everyday

do you fight depression? do you fight loneliness? then come and join people who know and understand... 64,763 People

    I feel so isolated from the everyone else.

    All the people who were once my friends are experiencing the beginning of their adulthood with many friends and new experiences. I feel so detached and I've yet to feel happy about living. It's getting harder. I try and try and try and I either get used or pushed away.

    "And I find it kinda funny,

    I find it kinda sad. The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I ever had. I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take When people run in circles it's a very, very mad world, mad world" Right now this chorus is all that is in my head, like it's mocking me... thoughts...

    The bouts of depression is like spasm.

    They come and they go. During the onset of depression, the attacks are mild and the interval between two attacks are huge. As the person gets into the actual depressive state, the interval becomes shorter and hence the attacks are intense and vivid. I would like to equate...

    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...

    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 keep trying to be happy.

    But, I get these moments when my hands shake and all I want to do is bury myself deep into ground and hope nobody pulls me out. I sometimes miss the feeling of cutting myself. I miss being heartbroken and feeling like my chest has been hollowed out. I miss it becuase I at least...

    no I won't kill myself. life is just too precious. But I'm tired of thinking about dying. I'm tired of being lonely and depressed and I'm just frustrated and sick and angry. I hate controlling my tears. but I hate crying. I just wanna burst out. rip myself apart. That.. right...

    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...

    I went to the graveyard yesterday.

    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...

    recently I've been breaking down in many places,

    and I feel like I'm on the verge where I'm just headed downhill, I know I can't take anymore of this confusion, neglect, anger, and other crap I just can't.. all I wanted was go be held by someone dear to me but that probably won't happen now

    It's like you get a mix of anxious,

    worried, upset and sometimes angry all at once to the point where you feel physically sick and sometimes everything blurs and you have like a panic attack for no reason at all or about the stupidest thing. And if you do something say hurt yourself or you think too deeply about...

    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...

    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...

    if others have depression due to them waking up every day and going out with friends, yet when I just wake up every day and don't even go out, she thinks it's normal. She doesn't even realise I think about suicide every day. I don't even care anymore. Whether I live or die, it...

    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"
