    I can't listen to the OneRepublic song

    'secrets'. My mom committed suicide four years ago, and at night up until about a year ago I would listen to that song over and over again at night because I couldn't sleep. I went days without sleeping, and I started listening to it during the day. Days, and I'm talking maybe...

    I was very lonely. I've suffered from depression

    for a long time and could never get over the feeling that I was never meant to live in this world in the first place. I felt like I was worthless, which I really am to the only people who matter to me. I felt just so tired and beaten down by this world. I felt that no matter...

    I guess this is a follow up to my other story 'These are my confessions.' Within it, I say how I have tried to commit suicide... and I guess I'm writing this to enable people to understand what drives people to try and take their own life. Within my life, there is a lot of...

    All of the times I attempted drowning. I never was hospitalized and no one knows. I have been bullied for a long time and I just chose that I wanted to die. I went underwater for so long that when I finally realized that I was about to die I honestly thought I might be dead. It...

    I was in a deep depression phase in my life,

    it still goes on till this day, but I just had to realize that the more I dread life the less I'll live it. I try to make the positives count. I feel my antisocial-ness gives me time to think to myself . I keep striving to out branch depression each day.

    I killed myself on my sixteenth birthday.

    I am 17 now. I am still dead, but how can I be typing this right now? Simply because I am the hollow shell that exists afterwards. I am the body without soul, nor spirit. I am dead, yet I am alive. Welcome to the world of suicide.
