    i may sound stupid or pathetic for crying and being depressed over this. But I can't stop missing my boyfriend. I'm currently laying in bed crying my eyes out feeling that pain in my stomach tears that I've been holding in all day to release at night. I have this hole inside me that can only be fixed by him. I can't feel better. I've tried and I've tried and I just can't get him out of my head. I...

    Struggling

    I just am having trouble with seeing my life going anywhere. I have been depressed for a while and from multiple things that have happened don't think my life will get better or will go anywhere. Everything in my life is blowing up right now and knocking me farther and farther into a blackhole. I don't see a way out, can't take it much longer and just want to sleep for a long time.

Even every morning, I just...

    I need closure!!!

    0
    I'm 16 and am depressed. I'm not sure about my sexuality and the guilt and suppression of my feelings has caused me to be very lonely and to lose all my friends. I don't talk to family and am very closed off because they have made it very clear that gays don't belong in this family. I am highly attracted to guys but would like to date girls to please my family and to see if I am really gay. I'm...

    What do I do?

    I don't know what to do anymore, this is the second person who has died that I knew in the last two months. I can't believe he's gone and had cancer, I'm broken down and I was pretending as this never happened, but it's getting to me, I'm so sad and hurt by this. I don't know what to do or be ok with this. Can someone please help me?

    Worried about depressed ex

    1
    I am not sure what to do about my depressed ex boyfriend. A little over a year ago, my boyfriend and I broke up (he broke up with me). He and I remained friends, against the advice of most of my friends. They saw how much I still cared about him, and didn't want me to get hurt. He has been depressed pretty much the entire time I have known him, and I tried to help him as best I can. He has had...

We were also very poor, getting kicked out of our house about once a year and moving at least 15 times in my childhood, including into an attic and a one-roomed shed with a bucket for a toilet.As a child, I got really depressed from being...

    Grief

    my best friend died suddenly Sunday night. I just talked to him Saturday (week from today) to confirm plans for this week because I was on vacation. I don't know if it was natural or drug related. I pray it wasn't intentional. I loved him beyond compare. My husband didn't like him so I'm angry at that resentful for his constant disapproval making seeing him difficult. I'm angry at myself because...
