    No one sees, no one knows. I can no longer bare the pain that is put on me. I'm past breaking point. I've went over the edge in which there is no return. I thought seeing people that used to make me happy and content would help, but it didn't. Every time they looked at me, I...

    Go to the mountains, quiet

    and peaceful. I can hear the sounds of the beasts and birds. I can smell the fresh, clean mountain air and take a deeeeep breath. Ahhhhhhhh, exhale alllllll the stress and negativity in my world. Repeat.

    I keep thinking and I realize,

    I am not looking forward to anything anymore and I don't even want to live anymore. If I could give someone my life I would, that way they could enjoy it. Cause I know I never will.

    I can't do this, I can't keep up this charade.

    I'm not happy and I hate everyone. A smart man once said, "Depression is a demon, and even when you think you've gotten rid of it; it's still there always waiting for that low point." Mist truthful words ever.
