These thoughts I have are unpleasant
I don’t know how to make them go away
My sadness has taken over
I don’t know how to fake a smile
The scars I’ve tried to hide are seen
My body is being consumed by emotions everyday
When will the pain go away
I can’t think straight
My mind is blurred by depression
Nothing can help me at this point
I can’t even help myself
I’m hopeless
I’m gone
I’ve tried
I’ve tried numerous times
I’ve tried to chase what I’ve wanted
And then
It disappeared
Right in front of me
I saw my happiness get taken away by so much
I don’t know what to do anymore



My apologies for being so late getting this. There's no excuse.

It saddened me to read your submission. I hope since quite a bit of time has passed since you wrote this that you are doing much better.

Please know that depression is treatable and there are so many options available to you. What have you tried up to this point? Assuming you've tried healing in some way, why don't you think it worked out?

The reality is that you are powerful beyond measure and you can change the course of your life. You can heal your pain and go on to live a fulfilling life. If you can find a part of you that believes this then hope is not lost.

Don't give up on yourself, Jillian! Get the support and professional help you need so that depression doesn't win. Instead, you are the victor!

Be brilliant,
