Writing and painting with gouache was the only things that helped me. Nobody could help me, except myself. I played with words and talked about everything I feel in some poetry. The colours and shapes on the paper presented monsters in my head and my other thoughts... And it was strangely good to feel them in front of me without dusk... Sorry for being too wide, but I wanted to write that ... well, writing helps :)
About a year ago, my older sister killed herself. I started to cut myself after that and everyone worried. They couldnt stop me from it, so my grandma bought me a journal for my birthday. She told me that it would help me face my sister's death. At first, I didnt write in it, but then one day I was bored and my parents took away everything sharp I owned so I begun writing a story. It didnt really involve what had happened to me, but it really helped take my mind away from it and eventually vanished the pain. I stopped cutting myself, I stopped going out into the woods at night hoping a cyote would eat me.To this day,I am still writing and I write every single day.I am now planning to become a novelist.
Yes, writing helps alot when I'm depressed or upset. Keeping on daily journal can help too. It's a constructive way to work through your feelings. sometimes a story or poem can be inspired from writing this way.
an escape from depression is forward away,writing easier,reading,becomes the weight of a book hurling through the air to the meeting of ms wall. pen is mightier than the sword. not all can write,but many can leave more than their mark;-]
Actually, I believe that the best that had came out of me, were born from feelings such as depression or anger, and even sometimes frustation. I've been writting for a year now, I started writting because I've lost the man I love and I still love. No, he didn't die, actually he is my friend, stupid isn't it? Well, I lost him because I used to be so proud that I denied loving him... Now I'm having the consecuences of my acts... So, the point is that almost everything I writte is for him, to him and about him... Because of what happened with him, I've started to have serius depressions and I was alone a long time, I didn't let anyone knew how bad I was feelling and it got worse and worse until one day I showed a storie to my best friend and she understood me in every way. She made me realize how wrong I was. yes, sometimes I get depressed by the same subject but at least I know I'm not alone. So, my best advice is, even if it is fine feeling upset or depressed sometimes and you pass your feelings on the writting , please don't aislate yourself, because lonliness is an horrible monster to figth against to. If you're too depressed, show your stories to someone that you can trust because holding it in is the worst desicion you can make... Please, don't make the mistake that I had...
Writing is hard work when writing to be read by others. If you write for cathartic purposes, however, that's different.. you won't share your writing with anyone so it doesnt matter if you misspell, make gramatical errors, ect. Depression is an awful disease that prevents you from caring about -anything- including writing or reaching out for help. So, fortunately, if you write to feel better, then you might not be depressed, you might just be feeling melancholy or a little emotionaly conflicted. Depression is an entirely different issue.
well, yeah, mostly. Sometimes it's to escape the world of homework and reality, that's why make favourite gonre is fantasy cause it's so unreal and all! But I love writing anyway, but when my boyfrend cheated on me (i found him giving a hikey to this slut called Joline :( >:@) i started writing the book im writing, and so now i got hooked, and im gonna send it to a publisher! I neva thought i'd say it, but
THANK YOU FOR CHEATING ON ME, MARK!!!
Hmm...I don't know. I think it was more a place for me to escape to rather than the actual act of writing. During what I think was when I was in the worst of my depression, I kind of retreated into my own world. I actually find that the song "Imaganary" by Evanescence fit's me quite well, with that. I didn't often write exactly what I was feeling. I started writing again about a year before the depression, So I didn't start because of depression. I think writing helped me a bit, though. I think.
My friend, Michele, gave me a journal in 2007 to vent out all my feelings on paper instead of on people & every year since then she's given me a journal to write in. It really does help and that way I don't have to hurt anyone, although I do sometimes, but mostly the writing is all I need. Whenever I'm feeling down, I write pep talks in my journal to myself & sometimes it works, sometimes I wanna punch someone's face out. Writing is a miracle worker, one word is worth a million more.
I've been stuck in a depression for quite some time now one of my docs recommended a shrink at the moment while my depression is worsening waiting for an answer to whether i have a mental disorder passed down to me I've been writing i wouldn't necessarily say it has improved my disposition but it has given me a way to vent escape reality and add some life experience to my novel its one of the few things that i get up in the morning for.
Dreams...Dreams are like a place where you can live out fantasy's and writing is the next closest thing to them and if dreams are actually reality and reality's the dream then I'm having a nightmare and my actuality is heaven
Yerh, pretty much!
I sometimes write diary. And it do really help me!
I've many bad moments, and then when it's too much, i read. Just read all my thougts down.
NOBODY may see it!
I've told mo mother, that if she'll ever gonna se it, it will be when i'm dead :i
I think yes. When I'm depressed, I just sit and write sad things. Killing the main character sometimes help ;)
Anyway, I'll never show it to anybody, so the world can forget about these stories. Sorry.
