    My depression gets worse

    and worse, I almost cry everyday. But when i don't do anything about it, it turns to pure anger. I juat want to fight someone. I think I'm going to start seriously training in mixed martial arts.

    Days Like Today...

    I have slight depression issues that arise every now and then. It is not too often that I have to deal with the depression, but today is definitely one of those day. It is never good to have both depression and stress at the same time, at least not for me. Today I just feel like...

    I can't explain it, but maybe because I've had so many let downs. This year will be different!

    While I do suffer from depression,

    this is actually about my general opinion on depression: I spotted an interesting BBC documentary on depression on YouTube today. I honestly think part of the problem has to do with the pressure society puts on you to "get it together". We smack each other around with cliche...
