    It comes and goes but not to the extreme that it did before I started taking 500 meds. Now I just take turns playing zombie and staying awake. I think we need some sadness though to balance us out. Crying is a great way to vent and good therapy as well. I want to be sad less but...

    What if I will never find my happy again?

    Today is my birthday and I am miserable. I want to go out and have a good time but I forgot how. I just lay in bed pissed at myself for not being more fun. I wish I knew how to change. I'm not sure how much longer I can live like this. :(

    I'm scared of life. I think about the countless number of days ahead of me and I feel trapped. Trapped living. Trapped in my mind. I feel insane. I'm dying to get out. Dying to be free. I wish it it was all over. I wish I had the choice to end it all. Why don't I have the choice...

    Emotions are the product of our reaction to the

    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'm tired of always being sad.

    I know it's a choice but sometimes you just can't help it. It's like you'll have everything but you know that there's something that you're missing. And it makes you sad cuz you can't figure out what it is.

    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.

    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 just want to cry. I hate being fat

    and I'm too lazy to exercise. I hate being lazy but I can't get off my fat *** to do something about it. I'm not happy. I have small moments of joy that fade quickly. I'm tired of being me, I wish I could get out of bed and enjoy life. where did I go wrong?
