    I've been so depressed

    and anxious due to work these days. Sunday's are like full panic mode the entire day because all I can think about is that I have to go to work on Monday. It's miserable and awful.

    Depression has a different quality

    than the normal range of sadness that you may feel throughout the day. When you are depressed you do not feel like being with anybody. You either sleep way more than usual or you can hardly sleep at all. Similarly, your appetite is either nonexistent or increases dramatically...

    I try to do everything right,

    exercise, eat healthier, stay as productive as I can. And nothing. Lately I've been weak, constantly tired, and I can't focus on much. I even walk my dog because I heard walking outside can help, but it doesn't help me. I hate feeling this bad and not understanding why.

    Sometimes I can't talk to people

    Everyday it gets a little easier.

    Whether it's bottling it up or working to ignore that sinking feeling, I find new ways to cope with it. If and when I shed tears it's usually alone in my room where no one can see me fall apart. To open up to my friends is mostly unthinkable. They've got their problems so why...

    I always have been a person to act tough

    when I really aren't. Trying to keep a smile on my face and wanting to make other people happy, but I felt like I was being stabbed (emotionally) while I was helping you out. "It's fine." But it never is. It's barely ever fine. I kept my depression and anxiety hidden away from...

    Light a candle to days gone by.

    Say a prayer, and start to cry. Loose all hope,don't wonder why. Say to yourself, i just want to die. Take those pills, use that knife. Get a gun, its time to go. Say goodbye

    Really bad night tonight.

    I always knew I was a complete **** up but I suppose eventually all I can do is shrug my shoulders and accept it. In some weird way I wouldn't even know what to do with myself if I WAS happy. It's not even an emotion I'm capable of feeling anymore. Like literally not.

    The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes

    from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being."

    The loneliest moment in someone?

    s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly. (The Great Gatsby) this is happening to me which is escalating my depression immensely, and I can't control either, but cry and medicate.

    Well that's an understatement.

    Every day gets a little worse. Slowly but surely that little light at the end of the tunnel gets smaller and smaller. Any happiness I was able to fake to the rest of the world is getting weaker, I'm losing the expression in my voice and the gleam in my eyes. My smile is becoming...

    I always seem to be all over the place with my

    emotions. I am afraid of loosing myself to that dark hole again. It consumes me without warning. It likes to keep me there. I can't loose myself again. Others need me to be myself.
