    This didn't fit in another group as well as it fits here so I'm moving it. I wrote a story about how I wonder what's wrong with me that makes me so upset for such a pathetic reason. Here's what I wrote (in bold):You're going to laugh when you hear me say this. I'm depressed...

    I'd try to explain that it's not really

    negativity or sadness anymore, it's more just this detached, meaningless fog where you can't feel anything about anything - even the things you love, even fun things - and you're horribly bored and lonely Allie bosh

    For No Good Reason, At Least

    Yeah, just the other night. I was really depressed because I felt lonely. No big deal right? I just have to remember to unplug my heart at night. xD

    Why?!?

    Why r my worst days when it's sunny and beautiful outside. When it's dark and gloomy I'm ok but when the sun hits me I get this overwhelming sense of depression hits me like a ton of bricks. Sometimes I feel like I can't move & I feel at peace with death.

    I've had a pretty ****** life,

    but the 3 years my life is as good as it gets with my foster parents. I don't live with my abusive and drug using dad and I don't live with my bitchy psycho mom, I should be really happy. I feel so depressed I really don't know why though.

    Hate It When That Happens.

    Worst feeling in the world, or one of them. Just after an outburst, I realize that it was far-fetched, exaggerated, inappropriate, extreme, angry and in some cases, destructive, though never violent towards another. I got a million stories and they are all a sentence or two long...
