    I take an antidepressant,

    but sometimes, it's doesn't work. Like, it's just a horrible feeling, I can feel the medicine, but at the same time I can feel the depression. It's just an odd, ****** feeling :(

    My depression started in the 6th grade,

    and now being a freshman I can tell that it doesn't get better. It gets worse to the point you want to jump off a bridge and make it stop. I hate when people tell me that it'll get better with time. Well, I've been waiting three years, 1095 days to wake up and say "Hey, I feel...

    I really do. That's why I sometimes don't leave

    my room or I go out on runs, it's because I keep thinking of things I hate and don't want to think about, then I feel depressed and end up making the atmosphere depressing which makes me feel miserable because I put everyone's smile away. This is why I just say to people I'm...

    I've always been a sort of weak girl,

    I mean almost anything could make me cry but since I've cried myself to sleep for the last three years it's harder for me to just lay down and cry. I hate that. Because crying sometimes feels like I'm dripping away te pain, making room for other experiences but now I just see...

    Which Is Why

    I've decided not to be anymore. Easier said than done. But it's working. It really is! My brain is firing with different pathways now and although things still get me down, I allow myself 10 minutes to acknowledge those feelings and then I change my mind and move on. I think...

    I keep myself engaged

    when I feel I am down and think of the n number of things God has bestowed on me. Just because I do not have a partner now does not make me depressed. I will try hard but someday somewhere she will appear before me

    Have you ever had a day

    I haven't been happy

    for a while now. Everytime I see an opening I head for it, but it closes fast or someone blocks it off. It really sucks because I have no one to talk to about it either. I'm using this to rant; that's bad. I wish I could go back in time and change a lot of things.

    Depression

    People who struggle from this know the feeling. Falling into a hole, alone, dark, scared. The feeling of hate towards everyone and the world for no reason. Pushing the ones we love, or want to help away. Them thinking we don't want them around when, really that's the one thing in...

    I try my hardest to stay positive and love myself. But goodness it's so hard. I write to comfort myself from all the hatred in this world. People can be so cruel and not even know it. I hate being depressed so much. Sometimes I just wanna die. But I don't wanna die. I wanna live...

    Call it PMS or depression.

    It gets so serious that sometimes I feel like running away from home. If anything, I really had enough. I hate being tied to do things I hate. I hate waiting. I hate helping. I hate lending a good ear to complaints. It's not because I have lost love or humanity. It's just that...
