DarknessThat's what depression felt like most to me... like it was truly dark and I couldn't see a way out. I was depressed for over a year and although I know some people are depressed for a lot longer, it felt like forever to me. I was cutting myself almost every day and I hated going to school more then anything because some of the people could be really mean... I lost heaps of weight because a girl made an offhand comment that I was fat. But I'm really glad that I managed to get past it, even though it didn't feel like it it would get any better.
If there are any people depressed out there, it sounds clichéd but it does get better.
