From the : One of my best friend’s has depression. He doesn’t hide it anymore, and has expressed to his parents and friends that he wants help.

She has been the...

This isn’t the first time my father has done this. He’s...

I go to the gym, meet my friends, write stories, watch movies, go on dates, play games–basically, things that should trigger some emotions in me. Except I feel nothing. I think of them as something as a black-and-white movie, things I should do to have a “normal” life. Most of my friends are unaware, because I’m able to manipulate my expressions according to the situations....
