    Feeling depressed makes me feel like I appear to be ungrateful for my life. People tell me all the time: "Be happy with what you got, it won't always be here." Honestly, I know that, and I tell myself that all the time. But the depression is hard to battle. It will always throw...

    Why is this so hard? Just to live?

    It's killing me. The feeling that your constantly being watched and you can hear the voices in your head make comments on everything you say. it doesn't help that i can't remember anything from my past other than pain, and hatred.
