    Confused

    I don't know what to think anymore. I'm so uncertain of everything. My mind is playing tricks on me. I have no idea what's going on in my mind. Depression has taken over every part of my life. It's taken over my thoughts, emotions, and actions. I feel like I've fallen off the...

    I am sad but it's a pretty selfish reason.

    One of my good friends went to this pool party, and I knew the host really well. Except, no one really invited me and there's pictures everywhere on Instagram on how much they're having. I feel left out but i think it's kind of selfish of me to think that they ignored me. But I...

    I can't remember the last time I was truly

    filled with happiness. You know that warm buzzy feeling you get when you're really really happy? I'm already on medication and counselling. So what's next? I just want to feel some of that happiness again.
