    Pointless

    I think I started becoming depressed around the age of 8 or 9 maybe. I don't know if you could even call it 'depressed' at such a young age. I just started getting periods of feeling completely hopeless. I'm 15 now and I still do. I starting asking myself what's the point? No...

    Hopeless and Sad

    I've been clinically depressed before - so much in fact that I tried to commit suicide. That was 6 years ago. What I'm going through now is different. I'm losing my job in June. My husband has already lost his. We can't afford our mortgage, so we're probably going to lose our...

    I Was Depressed

    A lot of people get depressed because of loneliness, homeless, longing for love, no friends, bad grades, dropping out from school, fired from work, accidents, etc. Every year that happens to all of us, each time we get depressed, because of what happened to us and our life. I...

    or not. I read about depression and how people can't eat or move or function/ socialize and that's not me- I'm outgoing even bubbly, and I can eat just fine. I mostly internalize anything I feel. I hate myself to an extreme level- my close friends have somewhat of an idea of how...

    I hate how I've been feeling lately. I feel so isolated and confused. Everything just seems to be so overwhelming. I can barely get out of bed in the mornings, and I talk to my friends less and less about how I feel. I don't want to admit to them that I think I need help.

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)
