Not sure how to start off this.. Hi I'm Aaron; 19 years old, and living in Michigan. Out of high school, but not working. I found this site on my 'every few days I become horrendously depressed and think if life is worth it' binge. After an hour of browsing it made me remember how big the world actually is, and I'm not as alone as I thought. I've hoped for a long time I would find a person or even people to open my inner thoughts to. My depression that started when I was 12 makes me unmotivated to do anything, and gets worse everyday. Not being able to communicate with my friends and family, locking my thoughts in my mind; never saying more than I have to in responses pains me everyday. I want to be someone completely different than myself, but how can I change when I cannot even ask someone for help? I'll leave it at that for now, I don't want to have people reading a novel of my own thoughts. :\ Greetings to everyone again; I am grateful to those who have read this, and cannot wait to divulge my thoughts with those who wish to talk.
