You think depression is a choice?
Well, honey,
Do you think I choose
To feel worthless?
To feel empty,
To feel sick to my stomach because I think too much?
To feel broken,
Constantly confused...
To feel hopeless,
Stressed out,
Angry at myself..
To feel suicidal, sometimes without knowing a reason?
To feel the need to lay in bed all day,
Without moving a muscle,
Because getting up would just make me want to fall back down?

Depression is never a choice.
You don't choose depression.
Depression chooses you.

We don't need ignorant people to choose us, too.
Please stay strong. <3 Anyone suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, any mental disorder of ANY type.. please know that I am here for you. :) Note me if you're feeling down. Note me if you have to, i'm almost always here!! ^_^

I feel like you feel me. My parents are always saying it's my fault I hurt myself an I choose to be depressed. They constantly act like I'm doing it for attention or for fun. They don't understand that I honestly do hate my self and my body and my mind and I seriously so want to get rid of it. This makes me feel better just feeling like someone understands that.

Not many people understand depression and mental disorders. It's amazing how people simply cannot understand that others are broken. Hopefully someone that does not have this disorder say this.. and hopefully they learned something from your writing.

yep. exactly. but still when im being depressed i get told to 'get up and get yourself together', 'come on stop being a drama queen', why are you so emo all the time?', 'whats wrong with you? why can't you just be happy sometimes?', and so on and such.

but anywho, thanks again for capturing the truth so well! ^u^
Love you and your poetry!~keep up the good work :)

Well actually, yes, you did choose to be like this.  No one controls your emotions.

Really, twerkomatic? If that's how you feel about it maybe you should "choose" to lose both your hands in an accident, at least then you can't type this crap and add to the problem. Ignorance is a plague, and you make me sick.

If no one controls your emotions, then neither do you - your comment is contradictory, and you're not helping anyone by saying that it's their fault when it just isn't.
