    Confusion

    I feel depressed and don't know why. I haven't told anyone. I don't want them to worry. God knows I do. I'm not sure if it's stress, or my parents not being home a lot, my little bro spending so much time on the computer, or what, but I do know that it sucks. And it is causing me...

    Depressed For No Reason.

    Nothing is really going wrong I'm just depressed.  I don't wanna do anything, I just sit in my apartment and either play video games or sleep.  I'm depressed enough to stop living, but too bored to kill myself.  I just feel like my life is a television...

    You Can'T Always Get What You Want

    Speaking with others can be so significant. It can be warming. It can be deteriorating. But today it was good. We can't count on others and that's the cold hard truth. People would like to commend themselves for their commitment to another soul but in the grand scheme of things...

    My depression isn't so severe.

    I can get by my days, slowly and in a fog but surely I can pass each day and breathe. I see my days only in black and white. Yet I know that you should live each day as if it were your last- which I used to. Every moment, every day, I made the effort. Now, all my energy goes...

    To Feel Alive Again

    I painted my nails the other day. What a big step for me; to plan, to prepare, to follow through. Such a feeling has become foreign to me over these past few months, but now? Now my nails are painted. That’s one step closer to being me…again.

    How I Made It Through Another Day.

    It’s been months of misery. Of no one understanding, and honestly not many people trying. I don’t know how long I’ve dealt with depression itself, but I can tell you when the suicidal thoughts had become such a regular occurrence: September 2012. School had just started and...

    My whole life, my dad has been the person I've admired most in my life. He is, in fact, my favorite person in this whole great world. With this kind of connection, you would think that he would be my Go-To for all of the challenges in my life, or at least this is what I've always...
