Featured: Who am I really?
CatharsisI didn't know I had depression until I turned around one day and found someone else in the same boat. It had never occurred to me that you could have depression and not know it and after sitting down with myself and having a good long think I came to the awful realization that it's been ten years. Ten. Years.Catharsis by Azael17
Ten years of being incapable of feeling the entire breadth of human emotion; only degrees of anger I couldn't control or understand, knowing that I was behaving completely irrationally and being unable to stop, driving away family and the precious few friends that had managed to find me and could no longer hang on to the maelstrom I had become.
It has been a never-ending rollercoaster traveling through a dream world where everything runs at quarter speed.

Please Read This, It's ImportantI’m going to tell you a story about an OC.Please Read This, It's Important by OcarinaLink24
This OC has a lot of diseases. She has one big disability, but the symptoms of this disability is actually other disorders. The list of things wrong with her goes: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, depression, OCD, irritable bowel syndrome, restless leg syndrome, tendinitis, migraines two or three times a week,extreme insomnia (if she doesn’t take her pills she will literally not sleep at allfor three full days), and a few other ones that I don’t feel like mentioning. She also has a few unrelated things: pretty bad allergies (enough so she has to take medication every day), acid reflux, suuuper low thyroid levels. Oh, right, and everybody drops dead around her, either being shot by someone mentally insane, or by natural causes, so she has a lot of PTSD issues. Once again, there are more, but I can’t think of all of them right
