    I want to feel happy,

    joy, anything really- i know sad and neutral and lost, but i would love to feel fun or happy or normal. i know I'm numb, and i know what i 'should feel' and when it's appropriate to feel something but it's almost as though I have to fake it because i just don't feel.

    It's one of those days.

    I have no energy, I can't stop crying and I feel totally and utterly useless. I'm in bed and I plan on staying here until there is something worth me getting up for... This could take a while.

    I don't want to tell anyone

    because I don't want to be judge but I'm tired of feeling like an emotionless robot. I'm tired of not enjoying things. Tired of wishing I was away from everyone. What is the point of depression? What even is the point if life?
