Over the past couple of years, this has morphed into a depression journal. I suffer from daily, ongoing depression, and I write about it here because, for me, writing is the best form of therapy. Depression affects every aspect of my life, so this is still in many ways a personal journal as well.

I rarely ever add anyone because I write only for me, but feel free to add me as long as you don't mind reading about depression and will not openly judge me. I write candidly here, and all of the negative aspects of my life, my weaknesses and depressive tendencies, seep through. I welcome with open arms those who are also suffering from depression; often one of the biggest forms of relief is simply knowing I'm not alone.

Other words that describe me besides "depressed":
Alyssa, perpetual student, nocturnal, loner, writer, gamer, collector (mostly of toys and action figures), beer lover, caffeine addict, runner (on good days)


"I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then." - Lewis Carrol, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

"I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited." - Sylvia Plath

"I want to overhear passionate arguments about what we are and what we are doing and what we ought to do. I want to feel that art is an utterance made in good faith by one human being to another. I want to believe there are geniuses scheming to astonish the rest of us, just for the pleasure of it." - Marilynne Robinson
