    Being Sad

    People think i'm happy, but inside i'm sad. It's hard to explain, I dwell on everything.  My friends think I'm so outgoing, but i'm shy. I even had a panic attack over something so stupid. Only my sister knows How I feel.

    Trying Hard Not To Be Sad... It's Not Working.

    I just typed into Google "I don't want to be sad anymore." I don't. I really don't. I just don't know what to do. I first started having problems with depression when I was about 8 or 9. I'm now in my mid 20's, and it seems to get worse every year. While my life isn't a bed of...

    Slipping in the cracks of depression.

    I hate saying that "I'm depressed", "I have anxiety". It makes me feel like a charity case. I hate it. Depression really doesn't go away once you really are depressed.
