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

Limb by limb
Being ripped apart..
Limb by limb..
Trying not to cry..
My very last tears..
I rolled up my sleeve..
To show what's deep within..
I tore my skin..
To show deep within..
What lies underneath..
This terrible being..
That is me..
I have told you before..
To just stay away..
To not fall in love..
But you didn't listen..
To any word..
I have said..
Now you know..
That every nights the same..
Wake up..
Put smile on my face..
Act like nothing's wrong..
As soon as I enter my room..
Everything will come out..
I cry till I can't cry no more..
I cry so much that..
I fall asleep..
With cheeks..
Stained with tears..
And eyes still red and puffy..
She's had enough..
More than anyone knows..
She can't keep going..
With life like this..
And that she..
Is..
Me!

Depression - My Story
When I was twelve years old, my world began to shatter.  I imagine that when most people think of when they were twelve years old they think of the beginning of a new kind of world.  A world that invokes memories of independence and high school and assignments piled so high that you wonder if you’ll ever get through it all.  My experience, however, was very different.  Through my eyes, the world was slowly drained of all its colour and everything I once enjoyed began to bore me.  Slowly, I pulled away from the rest of the world and into myself.
My family didn't really notice any of the changes, the withdrawal, the quietness and the isolation I inflicted upon myself.  I’m sure that they probably thought it was hormonal, at least initially, and so I was left alone.  In that moment, it was good for me; in hindsight it was the worst thing that could ever have been done.  You see when I was allowed to be left alone for a long time with no

Silence is Not a Solution
The administration has instructed my teachers to chastise anyone speaking about the murders. like they never happened... like people don't kill other people, or that there is drugs and violence or over 33 suicides of people 13-21 every day in America, that someone didn't and would never try to harm someone else... Well it must be news to them that THIS DID MOTHER FUCKING HAPPEN and that we can be big boys and girls and already know that DEATH HAPPENS. 2 kids being murdered within a month of each other isn't something new. I'm not saying that we should freak out but pretending it didn't happen is the opposite of a solution. These two boys may have been killed for petty reasons but that doesn't mean they led petty lives.
    They need to be remembered for the people who Loved them, the ones that care for them, the ones that can sit there and say, "I remember this one time when...". These people need the support of there friends and they need to talk. I know because I've been th

I never thought things would be like this,
I would never have suspected the direction life would lead.
I never thought you would be the one to leave me.
Every day I awaken, hoping it will all have gone away.
Every night I cry myself to sleep and pray that things will have changed.
I can't believe that it's been so long,
I almost can't recall,
The way you laughed, the way you smiled.
All that remains is the shrieking beeps and rushing feet.
The cool of your cheek and the tears running from my eyes.
I never thought things would be like this,
I never thought you'd leave me.

Coping
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

Hey. I don't know, have I depression or not. I just feel a lot of pain in my chest. This pain destruct me and take away my power. My body collapses, it is alien to me.

Well, I hope that will gone someday. For everyone who feel the same.

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: fav.me/d9ypmcv

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
