    Depression? I can't tell.

    I feel like I'm a loner and that I don't click well with most people... On the surface, you would think I'm never sad (I even work as an usher at a local theatre and I would consider myself the friendliest and most outgoing of the crew...). However I'm always dealing with a flood...

    I Can't Talk To Anyone

    I think I'm depressed. My families screwed up, I'm stupid and selfish, I have no real friends, I hate everything about myself, I'm so pathetic, and I'm so pessimistic I can't last a minute without one negative thought. My mind is overwhelmed with these thoughts. I barely have...

    Wish I Knew

    I want to say I have depression, as crazy as that sound sounds, but not in the sense that I want depression. I would like to for sure be sure that's what I have but on the other hand I cant be sure. I have suffered so much loss the past few years but done so much for myself it...

    This is difficult for me to share. I have literally never said the words aloud, never talked about it with anyone, never voiced my thoughts. I realize there's a chance that not talking about it may have caused me to make this issue worse in my head, but somehow I don't really...

    I am 12 and for the past year

    or two I have felt awful. Like there is nothing happy in this world. Like I'm not good enough or that I'll never amount to anything. There are times where I can't laugh or smile because I am so upset about literally nothing. And I haven't told anyone, not even my parents. I'm...

    Well I started cutting my wrist

    when I first got my heart broken by the guy I really loved. He didn't give me a second chance at all and then I stopped after that. From then on, I've been feeling all lonely in school, not smiling as much as I have for months. And I strived so hard in my studies and sport just...

    I was diagnosed with it back then,

    really early but I'm not sure now. I don't like to think I do but sometimes I just feel that I might but I don't let it get the better of me.

    I get these few hours each day,

    where I'm really depressed. Other times I'm just sad or maybe slightly happy. I really don't know why. Nothing happened. I just think of every single thing in a negative way, even if I know everything is good, kinda. I don't know what to do? :(
