And the lightning did crash

The road it split asunder

Two paths made available

The walk of familiarity, down faded streets of internal torment and outward farcities

The path that stopped abrupt a chasm with no end in sight

Equal unwelcoming feelings pervaded the decision

No backpeddling available, bridges burned bodies left to rot

Choice is the only freedom of the individual

The embrace of the unknown or the amity of misery

So tired and so far from home.

February 20th, 2017by WhyIsThisHappening

I’m almost 19 but I don’t really know that I’ll make it to that point.
I’ve made it through a lot in less than two decades. A natural disaster left me homeless at age 6. My first instance of sexual abuse (that I was old enough to remember) was at age 9. I’ve been suffering from severe depression, anxiety, and flip flopping between BED and self starvation since age 12. First attempted suicide at 14. And lost my father at age 16. A few months prior to that, I met the only person I have ever found who offered unconditional support and genuine love. Things were …

Struggling to get my life together.

February 20th, 2017by Premonition

Let me first say my thoughts are on the racing side today. I can’t get them ordered, and I’m going ramble.

First I have Bipolar II Disorder, and I’ve dealt with depression since as young as sixteen years old. Motivation is the hardest thing to come by these days. Now I’ve been in recovery for a year and have started to search for a job. I’ve had a few interviews, and one was super promising, but after a background check decided not to go through with it. That was disappointing, and little worrisome but I’m trying to move one. The trouble is this, I’m struggling to …

damn it.

February 20th, 2017by Orion

Can’t think of a good title..

Anyhow, the consensus is that life is so fucking god awful that I can’t even kill myself to help out.

There’s so much awful shit going on.  Where do I begin? Oh. Well, my grandparents both have cancer now.

 My parents have been trying to help by sending healthy foods to them when they have been devouring shit food all their lives.  But they still sneak around to other family members and let them buy them junk food..( I can’t help people who don’t want to help themselves.) They’re waiting on a

5AM BPD/Love/Sob

February 20th, 2017by Elliot97

Do I get up and disappear while she lays beside me, sleeping beautifully? Even if she did no wrong I can’t force myself to believe she hasn’t, If I disappear maybe she’ll find someone better and worthy. I was always told anything said or thought after 2AM should be ignored but it seems to be my wisest moments. I don’t know how or why I think this way, I wish I didn’t. I wish I was ‘normal’… I used to say consistency is key in my previous relationships but it seems the only thing consistent in my life is sadness, suicidal thoughts and total destruction …

Ironies and Contradictions of Modern Life.

February 19th, 2017by Black Holez

Anyone find it odd that our modern world is filled with people who are depressed and had enough of the suffering they are going through? In the past, people who suffered from depression were rare, they had an intact family, had people around them who knew the word respect, men acted like men and women acted like women and rarely were people using each other and being assholes (because if you did, you would immediately get killed). Now we live in a fast paced world where we are surrounded by toxic people who would bring each other down in order to prop themselves up and …

My story

February 18th, 2017by tfeb55

On the surface I think I am like most young and modern Canadian men: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I was determined to make happen,  I come from a pretty normal background: My mom and dad were never married and broke up when I was two, I still see both parents frequently, I lived a good life I always got what I needed and most times wanted if I put some of the money forward. But really that’s where the normalcy ends I didn’t have alot of friends growing up which isn’t something I really complained about

Some Joke

February 17th, 2017by velveteennightingale

I’ve gained another 3 pounds.  What the fuck?!  I saw this really thin girl today, and I felt horrible.  I asked my family why I have been gaining, and they said, “Don’t worry about it; you’re really thin.”  So annoying.  Like always, whenever I see any other girl, I think that they’re pretty and I am so, so ugly.  I haven’t cried for the last week and a half, just felt dead, but yesterday and today I cried.  I cried falling asleep, I cried when I woke up, I cried when I realized for the billionth time that I am nobody and that I can’t …

Mah Story

February 17th, 2017by Killstead

Here I am. Another night, another thought; like the nights before, and like the thoughts before. Only difference tonight being a Google search and bumbling into this website.

Well, sigh. Here goes.

My story starts about 18 years or so ago, back when I was 12. I wasn’t actively thinking about suicide before this time, but they put me on the mind destroying drug Ritalin and the rest is history. It was Xmas eve, and I had made a super potent spicy drink for ‘Santa’. Well, my naive little mind thought I had made the drink so strong that it was going to kill my mother. Of …

A bad teacher

February 16th, 2017by lxmyrick

So I have a teacher that is a true monster inside.  She is very rude and think that she is better than everyone else, has no respect to any students, and she think that she can do whatever she wants. Also as a teacher of one of my classes, she doesn’t teach and gives a textbook with us with no help, she doesn’t help us students with anything and says it’s all in the textbook, we can’t talk at all to get help from each other, and we can only work on this class during class.  So because of her lack of being a teacher, I am …

The Cover

February 14th, 2017by lonelygirl645

People may view me as outgoing, kind, obnoxious, bitchy, annoying, funny, weird, loud, extrovert, smart or stupid. That how I am in public. In reality i’m lonely, broken, hurt, scared, shy and quiet. No one knows how I truly feel. I don’t trust anyone because I’m always betrayed. I am broken and won’t ask for help.

Fuck this life

February 14th, 2017by lilxtina

9 hours sleep in 3 days. I’m losing my mind. I’m so freaking exhausted and severely depressed. Haven’t eaten properly in weeks. FUCK.

I can’t function. I’m at my wits end.

I’m so over this life that took away my only reason for living. It’s so unfair, so goddam unfair.

I’m alone, I feel so fucking alone, there is nothing left for me here.

On the value of contingency planning

February 13th, 2017by R-36

Before we begin, some background. Last year, I graduated with a Master’s of Science in biology. This was made possible by a loving mother who brought me to Canada and financial support by its government. During this time I have managed to forge real friendships backed by common experience and mutual understanding, a first for the shy kid who would always find solace in his books. In short, I’m pretty privileged: healthy in mind and body, with a support network, and a small investment portfolio. I understand if you can’t sympathize with my situation. I won’t pretend that I know the challenges of having been …

The 2 Lost Souls

February 13th, 2017by completely_lost2

Today has got to be one very hard day… All i seem to think about is the death of my girlfriend and daughter during childbirth. Their watching over me i believe. I want to have them next to me. You guys obviously know the reason i am depressed. Let me go into detail, I was watching my girlfriend, she was 16, give birth to our child. I was in the hospital room and watched the whole gruesome death. She was already in labor giving birth too Arial Hunter on 4-20-2015. Ella was laying saying “i cant, i cant, i cant” i was holding her hand …

Hitting so hard…..

February 12th, 2017by EvilOni22

From time to time I still find myself overwhelmed and just wishing all was over. I fear this will never fully go away. It’s been building up for sometime now. Longer than normal, stronger than normal. Ever so slowly imploding. Back to drinking myself to sleep cause I really don’t know what else to do. Even that has it’s limitations. Work is what I use typically. Just focus on it day in day out. Let’s me simply ignore or avoid what I can’t handle or can’t control…….that’s becoming me now though.

It’s been almost a year since I’ve had a full night of sleep… but the past two weeks have been even worse. Night after night after night of just nightmares and no matter what I do they won’t stop…. Granted I’ve always had nightmare/night terrors as a child, I just assumed they’d go away.


The sleepless nights are driving me crazy or should I say crazier than normal. Between the non sleep, relationship issues and the depression/anxiety and thoughts of death I feel like I’m going off the deep end. I feel like I’m losing a battle no matter what I do and have no one …
