    I Have Made It!

    I have made it! I'm not sad anymore. I have new motivation, new energy and I think that's all because of a new beginning. We had to move from our old flat to another. And we wanted to live in the other flat bevor the beginning of school. We we've done it. And so we (my mother and...

    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...

    If I Had One Wish

    If I had one wish I'd wish that I wasnt so sad...wasnt so weak...wasnt so full of stress, pain and depression. If I had one wish I would ask for my life back...because the sadness took it away long ago. I feel so numb of late, I've lost all motivation to do anything at all...

    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...

    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.
