    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 don't want to do anything at all.

    I never went out without wearing make up but the last few days I don't even want to get ready to go to work or go out. I started not wearing make up to go out. I don't want to chose clothes to wear, so wearing the same clothes. I'm just so sick of working long hours for the...

    I broke my ankle last month

    so badly that I had to have surgery. Since then, I've hardly seen the light of day other than that which comes through my window save for when I have a doctor's appointment. For the most part it's been tolerable. I'm heavily medicated to counteract the pain and I mostly just eat...

    I feel very unhappy, like a failure,

    and like there's no hope in my future. I'm mostly happy though well at least around people care about. People usually resort to cutting themselves, suicide, or drugs. To those three things I say what's the point. Suicide will only cause sorrow for your family I care about them...

    I Feel Like I'm Experiencing Depression

    I'm not exactly sure if what I'm feeling is "correct," but I'll give some background information. I'm 18, in college at a highly respected school, and pretty much have everything going for me. I was a straight A student in HS and graduated 2nd in my class. But before graduation I...

    I don't even know if I'm depressed.

    I don't know what I feel. I just feel.... Nothing. It's like I don't feel what I should be feeling, I feel less than what everyone else does. The only real emotion I feel is anger. I feel like I'm stuck. Like my emotions are stuck. I absolutely hate talking about anything...

    My Eyes Exposed Me!

    I'm not complaining, but I'm just tired of how much complicated my life is! It is not a normal life, it is not stable, it is not easy, thousands of issues are in my mind, and I'm so lonely, I have no one to turn to! I was thinking today about how I stopped being happy for a long...

    I'm Finally Getting Help

    This year was my freshman year of college. I had a complete and total meltdown during the second semester. I became withdrawn, not going to classes, not even leaving the room except to eat (and even then only sometimes). Finally, my family became worried and called the school. I...

    Feel like I can't control myself.

    I keep doing things I know aren't beneficial to me, but I like the momentary pleasure they bring. Sometimes I do things I don't care for just to avoid the important things I ought to be doing. Why bother doing important things anyway? I'm hopeless, a terrible investment that won...

    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...

    How To Trick Your Mind

    Hm. I feel hopeless and empty too much.

    I feel like crying but I can't bring myself to it. It's not being sad and morbid I feel, it's just the hopelessness of humanity and how I'm repeating the same life the majority of people do. Birth, work, die. Makes me feel pointless. When I try open up to people I just get...

    Maybe it's the way she made me feel alive.

    That's the conclusion I've some how managed to boil out. Whether it's true or not is indifferent, but nevertheless I'd have to do more reflecting to confirm that anyways. There are a lot of things in life that are mediocre, love shouldn't be one of them. I think that's why I...
