    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.

    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...

    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...
