Sometimes I Feel Like I Want to Give Up

I hate feeling that empty, hopeless, "whats the point" feeling.  I want to feel real laughter and believe in dreams.  Even when I smile, sadness is still there.  Some mornings I just don't want to get out of bed.  Often, if I can get away with it, I don't.

I am on medication, which helps, but its no cure.  And I often feel like I am the only one who feels this way.

Depression is debilitating. It is such a terrible feeling. Please take care of yourself, be kind to yourself, always, in any way you can. Love yourself.

You obviously have never experience depression or you wouldn't say that. <br />
Depression takes control. It leaves us powerless. It is not our life. It is not our choice. We cry because the tears come out. My marriage is ending after 25 years because my husband is tired of me crying. I love my husband and would do anything to be able to have a conversation without crying. It is not something that is controllable. If it was, nobody would suffer from it. We don't want to be depress. We just are.

HAHAHA! the only one!!!! Not even close.<br />
