    Should There Be Rainbows & Puppy Dogs

    I have been the way I am since I can remember. A few doctors have told me that I have depression. My self diagnosis is this.....I suffer from a drastic realisation of truth. I tell myself that the world shouldn't always be about rainbows, puppy dogs and golden experiences...

    The World Is Filled With Sadness

     As an open minded citizen of the Earth, I cannot help but feel the weight of it's pain.  Although lately it has all but ceased, for over a decade I went through a long period of despair and hopelessness, with bouts of severe emotional agony.  My pain has purified...

    I'm Fudging This

    I am undiagnosed. That is to say i have never been to see a doc about my problem. The only time I ever tried to take myself to the doc's, I went in and they saw a young guy and they must have thought that because I am not regularly going there for treatment then they could send...

    I Don't Mess Around With My Depression

    I take my meds everyday no matter what. I have fallen a time or two into the bottomless pit of despair and depravity. I know all too well what it's like to have absolutely no hope and you hear death calling your name. I never want to be caught off guard again!!! Some people are...

    I Refuse To Be Medicated

    I've been suffering from depression for 5 years. During this time, I have tried various pills prescribed to "help". But they never helped. All they did was make me tired all the time. They didn't make me feel better. They didn't help solve my problems. In fact, they...

    At Least I Think...

    At least I think I suffer from depression.  Why else does my weight go up and down, I have no motivation to do anything but the necessary things in life (like go to work, etc).  My mood swings can be dramatic.  One day I'm happy and the next day I don't want to get...
