    Almost

    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...
  • 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.
  • If i ever did therapy , i strongly believe that my therapist , after a while , will have to admit to me that life isn't for everyone.
  • Hello, I'm so scared that you will all hate me.I have been taking antidepressants for years. None of them work. I just lay down all day. I don't take care of myself. I know that I should, it's just so hard.I don't eat much. Even that is too much trouble.I accidently sat on my hubands spectacles yesterday, made a right mess of them, I pretended I didn't know anything. He loves me but sometimes my...

    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...
  • It really spoke to me, and I hope it will you guys too. It is from the book "The Language of Letting Go" by Melody Beattie (which is a great daily meditation by the way).ACCEPTING OUR BESTWe don't have to do it any better than we can - EVER.Do our best for the moment, then let it go. 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...

    My depression is starting to hit me again and it feels like it got worse. School started and it feels like I'm going to be a failure all my life, I wish I was smart enough. I don't have anybody to talk to anymore. I can't tell my friends because most of them never answer me. I feel so alone. I don't want to feel this way anymore.

    Relapse....

    I realized I haven't been on in a few days. Not that anyone knew. Anyway, I went to a rehab facility for 5 weeks and just got out a few weeks ago. I've been doing great and it was so worth it! However, the last few days I've been having suicidal thoughts again. I want to break this cycle but I can't help feeling worthless and that everyone would be better without me. When I went to the facility,...

    After having a good couple weeks I feel like I hit rock bottom today. I needed to get out of the house and I went to to the casino and lost absolutely everything in my account. I have no excuse because I knew what I was doing was wrong but I didn't care. I just kept withdrawing and blowing it faster and faster. I didn't think I was gonna hit a jackpot or anything either. One of the best...

  • Lately I have been feeling better overall. I've been taking my medicine, making myself be active, walking away from negative events that will dampen my mood, making more time for myself, and generally just doing my best to fight depression. And I really feel like I'm doing a good job with the progress I've made. But I have a boyfriend now who doesn't really understand depression. He will comfort...
  • I know it may sound silly, but I care very deeply about this subject. My Auntie died before I was born in a snow-machine accident and ever since my family has been absolutely traumatized. I got to a point last school year that I believed the only way to be happy was to die and be with her, becasuse I thought she was the only one who loved me... I went through a lot of shit last year, boyfriends,...
