    I am so depressed because I'm in love with

    someone I can't have. It's my best friend... We hang out every single weekend and never skip one. Today he's going on a date with someone he's been seeing.. they were gonna have "the talk" and see if it's gonna become official. I know this might be selfish, but if he starts...

    People always say it gets better.

    . But does it really? Depression takes over a lot, it makes everything feel ten times worse than it actually is. But can you honestly say you survive depression and that it goes away? I doubt it does

    I don't want to ever leave my house

    but when I'm around people I'm 'fine' even my family. I feel like I can't trust anyone except this girl who I think I might have a crush on, we have loads in common but I still can't trust her 100% I just hate my life so bad

    Does anyone else suffer from hyperhidrosis

    or excessive sweating? This is such a depressive condition to suffer from.

    I am really hurting. I feel worthless

    and I feel surrounded by people that wish to make that apparent. What is this all worth when you are drowning with your arms tied?

    Today has not started with the best thoughts.

    Actually it's not even thoughts anymore, more like physical side effects. I did not want to step out the door this morning. So much, that I had to vomit from the anxiety of meeting the day. What is wrong with me. I feel I should feel it be this way. The last couple of weeks I...

    I do not know a right venue anymore to speak my

    mind anymore so I thought I would give this a go. I am living day to day with depression for the past 13 years. I have gone back and forth with doctors but the cycle always ends the same, I lose focus, stop taking my meds because I think there is something wrong when I do, and...

    I made a very bad decision.

    I went to a bar tonight on a bad day. I don't know what to think right now other than I have never felt lonelier than I do now.

    I think I do not have any friends.

    I think of them as phases in my life. It's tough when you care about so many but it seems that none of them see that side of you. Being an introvert sucks.

    I just realized that this constant feeling of

    depression, I mean the background kind not the extreme moments where you want to kill yourself, has gone on so long that it feels normal. This sadness/numbness/terror feels like a permanent part of my life. Idk if being completely happy is even possible.
