    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...

    One Of The Loneliest Places On Earth

    So I was just scrolling through Facebook

    and notice some pictures my friend just posted. Considering she's one of my friends I look at them. I notice in a few of her pictures she has tons of cuts on her arms. As soon as I saw them, my heart completely sank. I thought back to the times when I use to self harm and it...

    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.

    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...
