    I don't know whether i'm depressed or not

    Hi, I need some advice. Ever since i was about 15(10 years ago) or so, i've been feeling down most days. I've been considering suicide on and off since about that age and attempted it a few times. I've not really got friends i can hang around with, most of my time is spent alone or with pets or...

    'Smile, it might never happen'

    Now I’ve never been one for smiling, I’m just not a naturally smiley person. If I had a penny for every time someone told me to smile or cheer up I’d be rich. And it boils my blood! In fact it’s nearly come to blows when I was a lot younger and quicker to react. What gives people the right to...

    Worn out by family!

    Hi All, Hope you're all having a good day! I'm literally at my wits end with my family. I don't know who to talk to anymore. I'm basically from a big family which to some can seem great, yet there is also the extremely stressful aspect to it too when you're from one that is just full of...

    Making friends?

    I don't have any friends and the only people I see on a regular basis are members of my family, but most of them are busy living their own lives with their own friends and partners and I end up spending most of my time alone. I'm currently unemployed and truth be told I'm finding life to be...

    Dead inside

    Sometimes I wonder if it's possible for part of me to be truly dead inside. Like my 'happy' side died and now my miserable side is on the edge, barely hanging on.

    Boyfreind doesn't get me.

    I've been with him for a month now, we haven't known eachother long but when I met him I felt like he was the one. I haven't been taking my tablets (I was on sertraline 50mg) for about 5/6 months now, I thought I was doing well. When I met him I was happy. I am happy with him he's the best guy I...

    I feel like I don't deserve depression

    And I don't mean that in the way that I'm too good of a person to get it, because I know it could happen to anyone (and I don't consider myself a good person). I feel like I haven't suffered enough to have it, I feel pathetic because I have it even though some people have been through much worse...

    I don't want to be bitter and cynical

    I want to be happy. I don't want to be an unhappy person who is miserable to be around. I don't want to be bitter and cynical anymore. I tried so hard not to become bitter, but it happened anyway. I don't want to go around with a sad face anymore, but I also don't want to be fake.

    A bunch of things....

    So, I'm 18 and an only child. My mom has been dating this guy for 4 years now. But there's one problem: he's married. I don't like that at all, but my cousin told me "Him being married is none of your concern" which I disagree with. Everyone in my family knows it's wrong to date someone else...

    My life is miserable, its depressing, demoralizing and harsh. I hate it and i wish i was someone else. God i hate my life. I curse it and i wish i could get away from it. I cry from the pain. God either does'nt exist or he hates me for some reason because it would be more pleasant to be dead.

    Money doesn't necessarily make you happy but..........

    Money doesn't necessarily make you happy. But if I am going to be miserable and anxious, I would prefer to have lots of it than none at all.

    I'm 26 years old, I'm an adult, I live alone and yet I keep getting the urge to run away! I just want to leave this mess behind and start again somewhere new.

    Having Some Trouble

    Hello, I recently wrote a six page letter just to put all my thoughts on paper. I dare not upload it here. No one wants to read a six page letter from a stranger. Perhaps I can give the general overview of it. I will try to be as concise as possible. ----- Short-&-Sweet History of Me: Had...

    Vent again, feeling down

    Sorry to vent, but I just need somewhere to unload my thoughts. I hope someone here has had similar feelings. Maybe it will help me cope. I think I mentioned last time I was here that I was a bit down and was going to make an effort to do better. I did, but sometimes it feels like I put all...
