    When I was 15 I had a friend with severe

    depression. She attempted suicide many times and had an eating disorder because of it.. Over the course of 2 years I have helped her through it and today she is much, much better than she has been in a long time. I don't think she realizes how much I have helped her with...

    I'm so weird. I talk to people

    who are depressed and do everything to make them feel better, when in reality I'm struggling with it myself and need medication but they don't know.

    Because I know how easy it is to get caught up

    in it. It's not something someone could "just snap out of it". How we perceive what this conformed society perceives us can have a huge effect on ones mental well being and can go one way or the other.

    I Think It'S Important

    I want to help these people, because I have not been properly helped...because the reason why isn't always a reason...because WE are people, too...because there are people who don't know why they are depressed, and when someone asks, "I just am," is not usually an acceptable...

    Advice

    Many people have depression in the world, yet somehow no one ever talks about it. Most people don't know how to react when they learn a friend or relative is depressed, and they end up avoiding that person. But I want to point out that often, we avoid the issue ourselves. I've...

    The worst thing about depression is the fact

    that most of us dwell on what it is that's depressing us in the first place. if we can condition ourselves to think positive, positive things will come about.

    Fighting On

    You may read what I've posted and wonder how I keep on fighting, why I didn't kill myself already. I honestly don't know. Something stopped me from the one action you can never take back. Maybe it's because I believe that no matter how bad it gets, I'm here for a reason. We all...

    I didn't even know that depression existed

    until about 2011. But even then I still didn't truly know what it was. Sometime in 2013 I read a little about is as I was reading up about possible causes of sleep paralysis and night terrors. But I wasn't too focused on it and didn't read more into it. I feel pretty lucky...

    I don't really know why, but people often notice that many people with depression issues are attracted to me (not necessarilly in a romantic way). Because of this- and the fact that I also have depression, so I can relate- I would like to help as many depressed people as I can...
