Top 10 Worst Things About Depression

The Top Ten
1 Attempting suicide

Please, don't kill yourself. Life has much more to offer.

I've thought of suicide before. I felt, and usually still feel, like no one cares about me, like no one loves me. But I know it's not true. Please, don't commit suicide. I promise with my whole heart that there's someone out there who cares about you, who would give the whole world for you.

I'm not ever going to even THINK about doing this, even if one day for whatever reason I suffer the worst depression in the whole world.

I tried slitting my wrists before to end the pain of rejection. Those weren't very fun times...

I've lost count of how many times I've tried to hang myself.

2 There is no promise that it is going away

Its really bad cause I can't do it on my own. I tried to get better,but its only getting worse. I really want to talk to someone,but I feel really ashamed.

3 Just about anyone can get it
4 It can lead to more severe issues
5 Loss of interest in things

I used to love reading and going outside and creating things. Now, that's just a distant memory.

6 It's too common
7 The pressure

Ugh, hate the pressure so much! It just makes my anger bubble up so much that in any second I'm liable to snap someone's neck

8 It can affect the people around someone who has it
9 It decreases motivation

Learning new skills are much harder...

10 The sad emotions
The Contenders
11 The feeling that no one understands

No one even understands what it is like to just be bothered by many things. To have many weird habits and interests. To be slow and incompetent compared to everyone else both physically, academically, and socially. To want and need to be alone for long periods of time to function properly and feel calm. To not have a desire to live and get better. To have depression so badly. o so badly desire A WHOLE OTHER life and want to be A WHOLE OTHER person with WHOLE OTHER relationships and just forget this current life and live the dream life in peace.

I know there are people with worse lives, but it's just how I feel. Call me stupid or insane, but it's just how I have felt for many years and still feel this way to this day.

It's a terrible feeling. I've never told anyone about my depression. It's overwhelming. I wish I could share my feelings with others, but I'm too scared. I don't trust anyone to keep my secrets. It's not like they'd care, anyway.

It sucks. It really does

12 Low self-esteem

That's me on a daily basis, I act like I have high self esteem when in reality I don't...

I have no self-confidence whatsoever.

I've always had a pretty low self-esteem but depression can completely destroy your self-esteem and make you hate yourself

13 It can change a person's lifestyle
14 Losing interests
15 Sleeping
16 Hopelessness

I definitely feel hopeless...

17 Insecurity

A year ago and this year, I was bullied. It made me feel very insecure and I fell into depression/bipolar. I wanted to attempt suicide, but when I did that, I stopped and felt how life was. It was beautiful and I will get over this. I still have depression today but it's not as bad.

18 Anxiety

This is me. I can't trust anyone.

Very horrible emotion

19 Bullies

The bullies only make it worse for you guys. This is why I hate bullies.

20 It is difficult to come to terms with it
21 When others call it a phase

There are "phases" in which someone loves some unexpected music or something, and they act like something is drastically wrong. Then they treat feeling like you'll collapse under all of your hardships, and losing any sense of hope, as a "phase", and do nothing about it. Seem right? I think not.

"Huehuehue the reason your so depressed is cause it's a phase cause you listen to that metal music huehuehue! " No, it isn't. It's not a phase it's a serious problem

22 It can be difficult to open up to others
23 Loss of focus
24 Being told you're just attention-seeking

People say I'm "fake depressed" or goofy and immature. They then say that I'm playing victim and that there are people with worse lives and that my life is just fine and I do things just fine even though I don't.
