    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 Get Depressed With Life

    I look around me and I see happy people or are they people who pretend to be happy! I just tell people yes I'm ok which is true to a point unless I really let life get me down. Why I do that is they really don't know me and my life is so depressing so many heartaches over...
