So it's PERFECTLY fine for you to sigh and gripe when I don't move my things off of the kitchen table within two seconds of you asking? (And I'm not really exaggerating. If I'd been counting it would probably be around ten or fifteen.)
But then, when I sigh after explaining something for the fourth time that you still don't understand, I'm a bitch and a bad daughter and 'HEATHER, don't DO that, it's RUDE'--hahahahaha. Hah. HA.
I see how it is.
You fucking hypocrites.

I know this feel.

...thing I found on a website LST gaveth to me. I've bolded the ones that I have.

Symptoms of depression


Everyone experiences depression in different ways, but there are feelings and behaviours that are common to depression. Some of the symptoms a person may experience include:

marks dropping
acting aggressive or disruptive (according to my teacher, but... he's being an asshole lately, so IDK)
having negative thoughts or feelings about themselves
taking more risks than they used to
withdrawing from friends and family
losing interest in things they previously enjoyed
having difficulty making decisions
having trouble concentrating
feeling irritable or angry
feeling helpless or hopeless
feeling anxious, nervous or restless
feeling sad or "down"
feeling guilty

changes in sleep patterns (e.g. having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep or wanting to sleep all the time)
changes in appetite (e.g. not wanting to eat much or wanting to eat all the time)
feeling more fatigued or tired
using drugs or alcohol to cope with moods
having thoughts about death or suicide


If I have four or five or more of these symptoms, I *may* have depression. So, um, joy.

Almost everybody feels like this at some point.
It's frustrating, isn't it?
Depression is internalized anger. My suggestion would be to write, draw, talk to a friend (or us) about your feelings often to get it off your chest. Externalize that anger in a safe place, like a notebook.

Yeah, got this from Heather.

I'm going to act like it's nothing big.

I feel like I have this like...emptiness in me. Like, for some reason I can't be happy. I can laugh at jokes and smile and truly mean it, but then there's this one thing tugging on my heart. It's like....I don't even know. I mean, I have wonderful friends and family (even if they get on my nerves sometimes), I'm trying out for the dance team next year, I kind of know what I want to be when I grow up, I'm doing pretty good in school.

CALEIGH, Y U NO BE HAPPY?!?!?!
