    I'm a 14 year old male, and I've been struggling with depression for about three years (I think it's three). At first, it wasn't that bad; it was just general sadness (though I was only sad at night, laying in bed). It progressively got worse to the point where I would have...

    It makes me angry when people reach out

    for help with this and no one cares to give them a hand. People these days are cruel and selfish and need to wake up and look around them. Because there are so many people in need of help. And to deny them help when they reach out for it, it damn cruel.

    There is nothing I would NOT do for you. In the quiet moments when butterflies sail through your Tummy. I will be there. When you need someone to stand in the gap for you. There is a glimpse of hope. Just look close enough. There is more than an atom, There is energy and you own...

    A twelve year old friend of my niece hung

    herself from a tree. She got bullied at school, had low self esteem etc. Last thing she tweeted was that she was going to put on her shoes and finally do it... What is wrong with the world?

    I get a little angry when I read comments and some of the stories posted in this group. It's a great idea, yet many pick and choose who to help, who to believe and who to actually think that maybe they do need a little help. Any cry for help, whether it be in a gesture of...

    I agree too ... I understand

    why people commit suicide. Major depression is not cure-able its manageable with anti depressants but it takes too long to find the right one for you that works. In the meantime you are suffering and being judged by others who don't suffer. I'm 48 and ready to die. I hate...
