    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.

    When The One Who Should Understand Doesn't

    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...

    What Do I Do?

    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...
