    The best description I've heard of depression: "Depression isn't when things go wrong and you feel terrible about it. It's when everything is going well, and you still feel terrible about it."

    The worst thing about having depression is the fact that you have to try and be a "Different You" in front of loved ones so that they stay happy...while you just rot away slowly but steadily.

    It’s so hard being a deeply feeling person in an incredibly unfeeling world.

    Linkin Park honestly has helped me so much with my depression. Just hearing Chester's vocals and their lyrics just brings so much light into my life. I am forever grateful for Chester and Linkin Park for getting me through every day. He said it best "The skull between my ears is a bad neighborhood."

    As crazy as this sounds, him just talking about the reality of deep depression really does help. It shows us we're not alone.

    Even when im around people that SHOULD know what depression is like, i still get pretty much the silent treatment.

    The worst thing about depression is feeling guilty for being depressed because you know you shouldn't be.

    I'm 53 yrs old. I'm not suicidal. But each night when I'm ready to fall asleep I hope it's my last. Then when I wake up I start my day disappointed with the knowledge that I have to get through another day. I do my very best to not bring anyone else down or even address my depression. I laugh and make jokes as a mask so hopefully no one will see what a mess I really am. I tried meds, different ones and different dosages. Tried therapy but I always got the feeling the therapist was talking to someone else. We are not the same as anyone else. Each person is unique, and each depression is unique. The four therapists I tried seemed to want to liken my issues with someone else's issues. Listen, I know I'm not alone. I'm not looking for a comparison. I'm looking for a way out. Show me. I won't kill myself. That's not an option, though I must say there's been many a time I've considered that route. But if natural causes could visit me in my sleep, my family would not have to ask why.

    The ending that reads, if you feel like this you are not alone”...completely misses the mark. I can be in a room full of people...and I am still, always alone. Depression is the loneliest place on Earth.

    Telling a depressed person to be happy is like telling a paralyzed person to stand up

    Very few people take depression seriously even when it is happening to someone that lives in the same house, shares the same meals, goes out with you to take a cup of coffee. They often take it as a period of sadness that will go away. But sadness is only a symptom; when we are depressed we lose interest in almost everything. We can't take pleasure or happiness from anything. We can't find a way out to our problems We dislike everything about us. We feel we don't deserve to live. Everything hurts you. It's an open wound that hurts every day, every hour, every minute, every second of our existence. And we just want to stop the pain.

    A friend of mine said to me that depression is like a cold: you have it for a while, and then it gets better. I said 'No... it's more like arthritis: you always have it, but some days are less painful than others.'

    People say you are not alone. They say that, but when things get dark, people don’t stick around. I am alone. I have tons of people around me, tons of family, but that is what depression does when it sets in. I feel nothing. It is a complete abyss. I am so alone.

    Had to do a double take when he spoke about envying sociopaths because they don't feel anything. I literally said the exact same thing to my therapist. It's scary to hear that same sentiment from his mouth, though I can tell he was in a much worse place at the time. RIP.

    I have clinical depression and have suffered from this for 35 years. I go from feeling physically and emotionally numb to feeling everything. Sometimes I just want to fade away but I can't as I have a family and responsibilities. Sometimes the only way to heal from your mental scars is to confront the monsters that made them. Know that you are enough, you deserve to be loved.

    "Crawling in my skin, these wounds they will not heal" Damn it Chester. When he said "im just going to go lay over here and die" I felt that in my core. Ive been so blessed in life yet Ive always been so miserable. I try to take DMX's advice and find meaning in the suffering, but I just can't. If you tell people these things they say shit like "you'll get over it " or "just give it time" I dont want time, I want to be happy and alive. Why cant I be happy? Why do I allow myself to get to the depths of despair and self destruction? I honestly don't know what Im going to do, but one thing is for sure I WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING. THESE WOUNDS WILL HEAL.

    Unless you have been there, you have no f--ing idea how awful this mindset is.

    I feel this. I'm on medication and seeing a counsellor now, quit drinking, and I'm just barely treading water. Doing anything is still a struggle. I'm almost 40 now (elder millenial here) and it's brutal seeing where I feel like I should be able to be, but can't be. If you're like me, don't be ashamed to go on medication and seek professional help, because the shit does not get better on it's own. At least I've stopped it from getting worse.
