[Video] Is It Possible To Hide Severe Depression For Years?

Is it possible to have long term depression, even major depression but have nobody notice? I do all the things I am supposed to do: cook meals, get the kids to their activities, do the requisite volunteer work, and keep track of everyone. Yet I have felt like I am dying inside for years. I think about suicide constantly. I don’t know if I could do it. I don’t know if it would be...

Alone on my Birthday

Yesterday, I had my birthday. At first, I invited some people over to have a party, but then I changed my mind because I was anxious about what people would say and if they had a nice time.

Confusing Feelings

I don’t know how I feel; my feelings and actions are confusing to me. Okay. So this is probably going to be long and confusing for everyone reading this. I have a hard time expressing my feelings, and maybe it’s genetic because apparently my mother is the same way.

Depression, Bipolar & Bad Thoughts or Interests

I am 20 years old and since the age of 12 I’ve changed from curious to strange. I dropped out of high school at 11th grade, never worked a day in my life, and have zero friends.

I see things...
