    2 months ago I was diagnosed with HSV 2.

    Less Extreme...

    Most will say that I'm still depressed. Maybe I am, a little bit. But, it is nothing compared how it USED to be! I used to cry often and occasionally cut. I've written suicide letters before. I've been through drug addiction, meds, counseling. I'm over that... I still have...

    During my years of being anorexic,

    I also suffered from depression. I took anti-depressants for a while after getting out of treatment, but that doesn't mean I still don't suffer from depression from time to time.

    When someone breaks a mug

    and they try to put it back together, then they keep dropping it and kicking it around, it continues to break. So they're extra careful with it and they let the glue dry. So why do we treat people different?

    As much as you hate your illness

    and the way it's turned your life around, do you feel attached to it? I'm scared at the thought of recovery. I'd been dealing with depression for so long, and it completely took over my life, so it became a part of my identity. Now I feel an emotional attachment to it, as much...

    Not A Pretty Picture

    It's a long hard road for everyone when you suffer from depression. You don't really know as to how you got there but you did. Trying to find the reasons adds just that more stress building up the depression. Doctor's put you on medications which have very little help. Thoughts...

    Yep. I know what it's like to feel

    as if sadness has taken over your head and to feel as if you have no control over yourself because you are so sucked in to this mental disease. Wow, that was a long sentence.
