  • Each moment is so hard for me right now. I can't get my brain back on track with antidepressants and therapy. I've tried for 7 1/2 months. I'm tired of fighting to feel alive. All I want to do is sleep. I feel so alone as if no one understands me.

  • on June 27th this year. I took 23 very strong sleeping pills, I got so sleepy and unaware of my surrounding. I was so dizzy and lightheaded. Once I would lie down and no be able to get up. My life was fading. I closed my eyes and instantly went to sleep. Everything was grey around me, and a mirror (this was no dream, it felt different) appeared I looked into it. I was in a black bra and...

    Tonight I almost committed suicide bc a girl basically said I was creepy pervert and it hurt so much. It hurt so mich because I have been "that guy." You know the one. The weirdo nobody talks to cause they think he's a perv or something. Yeah, hello! I'm that guy you've judged, along with what feels like half the world. To be rejected not only by people I was attracted to but by people in...

    Denial

    Last night i couldn't sleep. I kept thinking about myself and the situation in which i am. I somehow came to realize a lot of things. I have been struggling fiercely with keeping my sadness hidden. And at times i would give up the struggle to conceal my true feeling and so i'd tell a friend about it. But i'd wake up the next day and realize i've gone too far. Seeking out help for my depression...

If we have to reo it, we can do our best in another moment, later. We can never do more or better than we are able...
