    and I want to go to the doctors to find out, but I'm so scared...I don't want my family or friends to find out if I do, maybe my friends but not my family..they'd just make a big fuss. Or make it seem like it didn't matter. Also, I wouldn't know what to say..because you have to...

    It's terrible really.

    Sometimes it is like my mind is racing at a million miles and hour and I just cant stop it. Sometimes I feel so empty that it hurts and I just cry and cry and can't make myself stop. I find myself so distracted in class, and most of the time I'm thinking about the ways I would...

    let's just jump right into this,

    I have had suicidal thoughts since a very young age. I never go through with it because I think of the hardships my family is going through. My parent's have been on the brink of divorce probably ever since I was born. My mom quit her job. My oldest brother got sent to prison...

    It just hits me like a bat

    and I am just sad and I don't know why my parents ask and I don't know what to answer them with because I don't even know. I just feel like crying.

    So i believe that I have depression

    and anxiety(its been for a couple years now and I've researched both a LOT) and it's contributing to my self-harm problem. I used to self-harm because I was bullied, but after that stopped I was left with this dark feeling inside. Like it's always there, but when I'm around...

    My dad was diagnosed with clinical depression

    when I was a teenager. I've always wondered if I do too but I don't want to be suggestive. I don't really want to find out if I do because of the cost. I don't have health insurance so the doctor visits and medicine would add up. I'm only 25. If I have it then I'll have to...

    I went to park yesterday

    and spend some time alone, sitting and watching random kids giggle and play. I also love the feeling of fresh air that touches my unpainted face while the wind blowing through my hair. I then realized that since 2011 until now, I've been exhausted psychologically...

    I have no idea if I have depression

    or not but my parents sure do not like the idea of it. I left my brother home alone for a quick second so I can drop by the pharmacy to get some medicine for my mom. I didn't want my brother to come because it was cold and I didn't want him to catch a cold. My parents found out...
