    I feel nothing, and then too much.

    I've been laying in bed for almost 3 hours now, staring at the cieling. I don't know why I do this, why I just lay there doing nothing, thinking nothing, and feeling nothing. I have things to do, I'm a busy person and I'm still in school, but I can't bring myself to do anything, I don't want to...

The test made it...

    So through the entirety of my high school life I suffered with clinical depression excluding the first half of the first year there, approximately. Wallowing in self pity at any chance I had, rarely feel satisfied with legitimate accomplishments and isolating myself away from the people that...
