Depression, Loneliness and Poetry

In the depths of despair, where shadows loom,

Depression's weight, a relentless, heavy tomb.

Loneliness aches in every silent cry,

Cruelty of the mind, where hopes seem to die.

Yearning to escape this desolate shore,

To find a sanctuary, to hurt no more.

In solitude's quiet, a respite I'll find,

A haven from torment, for my fractured mind.

To break these chains and finally be free,

From the grip of despair, from cruel misery.

In solitude's solace, my spirit will mend,

A chance to escape, to heal, to transcend.#Depression

I’m so angry and sad

BPD can be lonely just like my multiracial background. I feel like I just fit nowhere. My family has been my greatest torture. I think I’m too intense for everyone, even myself today. I know people say challenges are what grows character but at this point erase my brain and let me start over .

I’m new here!

Hi, my name is Dani Stone. I'm 55, and have been learning to live with multiple health issues for 15+ years now. It's a lonely journey, but I can say I've learned to advocate for myself, I have a strong support system and using my Horses for Equine Therapy has been a life saver!

I’m new here!

Hi, my name is EffortlessSeahorse3. I'm here because I've suffered from clinical depression probably since a teen and that's a long time. I'm very lonely and continue to have depression despite being medicated. I'm so tired of it all!!
