I used to be a happy individual with my parents and a had a good home until my parents passed away, house fire and tried to commit suicide off and on to escape my pain. I got no friends nor Family to talk to. I was forced to get therapy but they don't help me at all besides make me miserable. I do not have will power to be living times. I admit I'm suffering heavy from depression

We are super organisms who evolved so much over the years that we grew to question our own intelligence, i don’t even want to tell you the chances of you reading this message right now, after all, you are that one in 200 million sperms who managed to make it

Cheers for the Video! Sorry for butting in, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried - Lammywalness Erase Depression Guide (google it)? It is a smashing one off product for beating depression fast minus the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my friend at last got astronomical results with it.

Thanks for the Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you thought about - Lammywalness Erase Depression Guide (probably on Google)? It is a good one of a kind product for beating depression fast minus the headache. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my mate after a lifetime of fighting got cool results with it.

Dickson Leung
come on guys, nothing is worth the sad, just keep your perspectives, nothing in life really matter except ur happiness. life can be a simulation but ur feelings are goddamn real, so just deny any shits that fk in ur way. be a happy fk and do whatever that please u, u only live once, so make the best use of ur time, let go of those stupid social norms, social standards and maximise ur happiness, thats life!
This did not help me
Maybe i should get checked out

I am currently suffering from depression severely since as a kid.
Boz Gurd
I'm 27 and I'm severly depressed. When I was 13 my mom died and then I became depressed. My father remarried after a month my mom died and didn't care about
my feelings at all, he never does. I've never felt close to him, he's like a stranger to me. I live with my grandma. At the age of 22 I became a drug addict (pills). I still use them but not on daily bases. I'm almost always in my room and have suicidal thoughts very often. I feel mentally crippled. I'm totally messed up. I wish I was never been born at all.

I’m not sad, or suicidal or anything, but I️ feel nothing. I️ have no emotion and when I️ do get sad I️ cry for hours over nothing. I’m also usually tired and hate doing anything that involves getting up. I️ also have rly bad anxiety... does this sound like depression?
well i been going through depression due to i have been going through chemotherapy for Leukemia for the last 5 months. and i don't have a job or money and i find myself doing the day crying for no reason i have very little money i created a go fund me page but no one gave one penny i would like to go and shop and buy something nice in hopes to make me feel better but nothing ..

I try to be happy, but I hurts to smile. It's awkward to laugh. I feel like getting further away from my friends more and more every day. I wish I could stay happy, but I just can't. Many don't know this about me, but I have a small but powerful case of depression. I get stressed more and more everyday from my grades from school. Please don't be like me. Just smile at your friends and family, or even just other people you sort-of-know. I don't want anyone else to go through what I do. Remember my story and make change in your life.

I'm very very sad... I don't know what to do.... and I think I'm depressed..... I don't think that the world is being fair with me.... I know the problems might be a punishment for me from the world... but why is it every day???? I'm feeling really sad.... I'm just happy when someone makes me happy... but after of that.. and after they leave... I'm back to my sadness....

Depression is an illness of the mind.If the first instant of negative thoughts are not overcome,then the depression seed is planted!Living in a third world country might help,as one struggle day by day just to survive.No time of luxury for negative thoughts!

Never thought of depression as a real disease until I dated a girl with bipolar disorder..

There are a few factors in remedies for depression. One plan I discovered which successfully combines these is the Martos Magic Method (google it if you're interested) it's the most helpful plan that I've seen. look at all the extraordinary information .

Nope, the basis of depression is not biological . You are mistaking correlates for causes.

Fun fact: People who scream out and say they have depression don't, the people who do are actually the ones who seem the happiest because they are trying to stay happy by acting happy.
I don't even know anymore
I remember I had my first suicidal thoughts in 3rd grade and started making plans in the 4th grade. I was too much of a pussy to do it though
Ed Sweet
