    “It’s so difficult to describe depression

    to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling.” J.K. Rowling

    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...

    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?

    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.

    I suffer from Bi Polar depression.

    When I was first diagnosed with depression, they diagnosed me with chronic depression which is depression caused by the fact that somebody wants attention and to be depressed. They later realized that I am in fact NOT chronically depressed. My parents kept telling me to just...

    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...

    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...
