    She's only 18, her whole life's ahead of her.

    She hates school because the people there discredit her. Her girlfriend tries to show her that's not how it seems. But everyday she just gets lowered with her self-esteem. She let's her know that every night will have a brighter day, She even tried to overdose and take her...

    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.

    It seems I'm always say these days. I can't remember what it's like to be happy. Right now I feel a little better, but that feeling never lasts very long. Sometimes I'm happy, and other times, like right now, I just feel okay. I'm always worrying about my family, my friends, my...

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

    I've Taken A Monopoly On Misery

    I guess it is a little like making 'war on terror'. I've come to the realization that it doesn't stop. Hope is the lie that makes a few moments out of every year bearable. The rest of it is a big suffocating joke. I didn't realize when I was born that I had taken out this...

    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.
