    Depression is a horrible thing.

    Not that it's bad. People have it. It's horrible because it can hurt. It's not a positive (obviously). I find myself getting depressed easily from simple things. But Then find myself feeling a lot happier after certain specific things. #1 Is being able to talk to people

    Realised Only After

    I never knew I was depressed when I was actually suffering from it. I have of course wondered if I was, but I always brushed it off believing that I wasn't since I thought I was. I've done self harm, and no, I do not cut my wrist. I think that is completely stupid and just...

    Depression is like that person in your life

    that you thought was your friend, but then ends up hurting you in the end. They were always there with you, came uninvited, made you emotional, but left you with a broken heart

    But I'm Not Anymore...

     ... and that's why i'm sharing my story.   The first time you're depressed, and maybe even the second time you're depressed, you might feel as if you will be depressed forever. You won't be. It doesn't last.    The things you are feeling about yourself...

    Two weeks ago I reached a pretty low point.

    The pain was unbearable, you probably know what it's like...But over this past week- I've felt better (for no reason) I honestly have no clue why? I've been severely depressed for the past two months, and all of a sudden... It's gone. I wouldn't exactly describe my state of...

    I Think It's Starting To End...

    I've been depressed for about a year, ever since a planned move fell through, I lost my job, and my girlfriend broke up with me- all in a single month. It's been a dark and scary place, and I swear I didn't think I would come out of it. It felt very permanent and lasted longer...

    where life is just a bore. I have been working at this job for almost a year now and originally thought it was the best job I'll ever have. Now, it's boring as ****. My other job is rather exciting, less hours and more money. I'm a very upbeat person, but not having a job I...

    "i Am Depressed"

    Depression creeps up with no warning signs. You're okay one minute and the next minute you get foreboding thoughts that all sorts of things can "possibly" go wrong and you can do nothing to prevent them if they should happen. You might even know the thoughts are not wellfounded...

    I used to go to bed crying.

    Look at myself in the mirror and hate what I saw. I used to throw up when I felt as if I ate too much. I used to feel tired all the time. I used to get anxiety attacks when I had to go somewhere like school, store or family events. To be honest I do not know how it all changed...
