Depression Gets Me In a Lot of Trouble.

People consider it a weak state of mind & figure they can take advantage of you any ol' kind of way. People do & say things to make me depressed ON PURPOSE! They're so evil & sadistic. They don't care how you feel. They think you're crying for attention & misbehaving. Not the case.

I failed lots of tests & missed lots of classes, like missing a WHOLE week of school because I don't have the energy to get out of bed, & people think I use it as an excuse, but I don't. & so no one cares. I can't tell people about my depression because they'll say something to make me feel worse.

It's a struggle to get out of bed most days, & I feel mentally cripple. I can't even think correctly.

I understand completely how you feel. I've been suffering with depression for a few months now and I found it very difficult to go to college and work and its very hard to get people to understand. You're never alone. I believe noone can truly understand depression until they experience it. Remember that there are a lot of people out there who can help you. Are you on medication?

I know how u feel.i deleted my account for that and thisis my new.u know something?people just say what they think.we cant always run away.we should learn and try to be happy.many hugs*

i know how you feel because that's the same thing I am going through. People just don't get depression they think it is pyschological or you are just imagining that you have it. Be strong and get as much help as you need. You should try counselling it helps after a while and try going to your GP to get anti-depressants. I was on them and they did help, I am going to get more this coming week. They are not as bad as everyone claims. And remember I'm always there to chat and help you whilst alo helping myself. take care x
