Am I alone?
I get a funny feeling,
it comes from deep inside.
I get all mad and angry,
wanting to go and hide.

My doctor calls it depression,
my dad says it's just me.
But the thoughts and feelings,
no one will ever be able to see.

Some say I'm psycho,
some say I'm just weird.
It's like I'm a different person,
and the old me just disappeared.

I get really edgy,
I want to commit suicide real bad.
Then I get a headache,
followed by feeling sad.

I wish I could get help,
I wish it would go away.
Maybe if I keep praying real hard,
it will some day.

I think this poem is written very well...gets your point across...sounds like a chemical imbalance to me...but I am not a doctor...I would certainly have it looked into...suicide is NOT the way out...Bless you ...Kacee

I hear you - you have described this feeling amazingly well.
I also suffer from clinical depression and it took some work to find the right medication. Keep talking with your doctor - there are so many types of meds and your unique nervous system may not respond to some of them. What I take works so well that I function totally normally - whatever normal is!!! Don't give up - things can get better - keep after your doctor and maybe see a pyschiatrist to be absolutly sure you're on the right meds. Depression is a medical problem - its not well understood by those who've never had it. Hang in there!!!!
