Welcome to our group! Feel free to join if you were once a victim of depression, or are currently are one. Those with any form of depression from general depression to Bipolar depression to depression caused by other disorders are welcome.
We will also be happy to take those who simply find this interesting, support those with the disorder, as well as those who just wish to submit art related to the group. We will try to make you feel as welcome as possible!


2017 Update.

Hi everyone,
It's Red-Wallflower here, I've been a contributor for many years, possibly about six years and I've lost count of how many years of my life I've suffered from depression and other disorders - almost all of it - BUT that's another story.

For those inquiring, The founder (thedevilsbride2) appears to be inactive and has been inactive for quite some time, However the group is still active and you can feel free to share and speak among yourselves, share your emotions through your artwork and make new friends - You are never alone in your struggles, sufferings or recoveries!

If you are in a crisis situation, please, please, get help immediately - there are organisations in this world that can help you, possibly better than we can, but we are a social support for you when we can. Please google search a organisation in your country or area that can give you emergency aid. You are important and beautiful!

Much love to all of you. x

Breathe in air
deep and slow
close your eyes,
but don't let go
Grip the blade
then let it fall
erase the pain,
erase it all
Feet in contact
with the ground
pitter, patter,
all around
mirrors shatter
broken glass
shattered image,
shattered past
numbers, numbers
all the same,
all relate
to weight and shame
darkened views
from hooded eyes,
salty rain
from crying skies

Life Between Fear and Love
It wasn't about getting him to stop hurting himself.
It wasn't about helping him understand that what he was doing was wrong, either. It wasn't about showing him the constructive aspect of life. It wasn't about giving him another way out. Nothing ever is that simple.
People prefer these kinds of tragedies be second-hand knowledge, arbitrary and diluted enough so that they can push it away with a simple "too bad". He was no tragedy, although he was treated and perceived that way. And also he was not wrong in the way he thought. However, he vividly saw something no one else was aware of. He was so intensely conscious of a presence that no one else could identify themselves. It was about fear and knowing fear closely and intimately, embedded into the world he saw. Here was life in its full expanse and he did not know what to do with it.
You'll have to understand that, with fear, there is no right or wrong, black or white, justice or chaos. True fear is so much more than that, so much more

Pitter Patter, goes the rain.
Her cry, filled with pain.
Where is he?
Where did he go?
Didn't I see him? Just a minute ago?
He was here, and now he's gone.
And now a thought begins to dawn....
He's left her, he's moved on.
She loved him, he loved her too.
Or so she thought, and in her mind, a plan begins to brew.
She'll get back at him, oh yes!
She will, she'll make him pay.
She'll even kill.
He took her heart.
She took her life.
And now that man has lost his wife.
He didn't leave her, he hadn't moved on.
He was too late....and now she's gone.
Pitter Patter goes the rain.
And now his cry is filled with pain.

Hello!! I don't really know if I have depression but I think I do.. BackstoryI guess?? I had a Dog named Maggie and she was my world.. Then she bit my brother 2019, November 20.. So we had to get rid of her..He had punched her in the face by the way, and I still blame it on myself! I heard some noise but dismissed it! I heard the door slam I DISMISSED IT!!I was to lazy to look except when I heard her bark and he started crying!! Thats when I knew she bit him!! Its my fault she's gone! Long story short, we no longer have her and I've been really missing her.. The thing is she always slept  right near my door and now when ever I go to sleep its so hard to see her not there.. Or not whining to be let out of my room in the morning like she always would. Its hard to even see anothers dog and not be jealous/ not cry.. I usually smile at school so noone worries about me but its getting to hard and I'm starting to get tired of it. I feel as if noone at my school really likes me so I try to change and make others be happy with me but I feel like I only have 1 really friend.. I feel as if I'm a outcast and don't belong anywhere either.. Its getting hard to hold on but I know if I die now everyone in my family would be heart-broken so I can't give up yet. I guess I cope with it by crying every night. Thats mostly why I've not been posting on my acc for a while, I've been too tired to think of anything. I've wanted to cut my hair because I want to be me but I apparently can't because I still need to act like a girl.. I don't really know if I can hold it in much longer. I'm so jealous of all the girls in my school who are pretty and popular and have so many friends. Then again, I'm not really even pretty.. Or popular.. I feel like everything I do is wrong.. So yeah, I guess that was my vent! Pretty stupid huh?..

Hello there ..can't find the mayijoinbutton on the phone app...just wondering if you have room for a ddepressionistic bipolar maybe- schytsophrenic...
My depression is so terrifying everyday is a bloody fight. There is a continual stream of tears down my fave have one year left to becoming an adult and to me depression is like swimming. Those of you who read this will understand. You're swimming in murky water and you can't see and you're trying to swim but you can't even see the surface because of these weights on your ankles and you need to breathe but breathingsimpossible when youxcan't even find the surface and then these mean carnivorous fish come and taunt you from the shadows and claw and bite the helpless you and you're running outof breath and then yyou realize its all pointless anyways so you just DIE because even if you could get out of the water there's no one up there that loves you anyways .

Anyways thats depression for me...I'm not the type to tell anything about myself but it's nice to know there's others. I would be happy ti give encouragement if anyone needs it just note me.

Hello all.
My grandma recently attempted to commit suicide, so I'm putting
together a get well/welcome home package that includes a big card.

My family and I would greatly appreciate it if others left some words
of encouragement for her to add to the card to show that she matters.

Details can be found in my journal here:

This attempt has left all of us devastated, but we are pushing ahead
and surrounding her with all of the love and support that she needs.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

I have been searching for a Deviantart group just like this for a couple of days now, and finally I find one; a group that isn't deleted or with no activity left.
As a teenager who becomes an adult sometime next year, I have been suffering with depression (without any chemical treatment, or even therapy) for some time now. About 3 or 4 years, roughly. Every day is basically an emotional turmoil, a never-ending battle for me that continues to persist. Although I hesitate to present a sob-story to you all, I still wish to show you my appreciation for this group. I would very much like to join, even if this comment is as cheesy as it is. I don't even care about official diagnosis from "doctors", no-one can tell me my own feelings. Even if I don't have depression, it sure feels like it otherwise.
I also want to say that, if anyone needs support or simply to vent, I am more than happy to oblige since I know what this illness feels like. You are not alone~ :heart:
I apologize for the rambling, it just felt nice to finally release this inner feeling after so long. xD
