WARNING: This is basically not for anyone who hate's reading about everyones problems.

I grew up without a Mother, but was raised well by my Father. My Dad was busy fighting forest fires and left me with his Sister; at one point I was abused by a babysitter she left me with. At the age of 12; this incicent really began to take its toll. I remember feeling very sad and lonely all the time; I felt like I couldn't relate to anyone becasue I had such a negative outlook on life. I thought everything would be better by the time I got to college but that's when I began having symptoms of Anxiety; I was living with my ex Boyfriend at the time. His ex began harassing/threatening/stalking us as soon as we started dating; this really made the Anxiety uncontrollable and to a point where I needed medication to make it through the day. After two years together my ex decided to end our relationship 20 minutes before my Aunts funeral over the phone while 8 hours away; the same Aunt who took care of me when mybiological Mother couldn't. I was more sad and hurt when my Aunt passed then I was when my Mom passed; I was 16 and she was struck by a vehical on Toronto's Highway 401. I feel like if I let out the shit that's been making me depressed; someone will read this and either understands or can relate to. It always made me feel good when someone would appreciate what I been through or thank me for sharing my story because it would inspire them to appreciate their life more. I'm 22 years old now and it was about a month ago when my Aunt passed and the break up happening; I'm still very upset by the whole thing. I don't want sympathy or a pity party; I just been battling depression and I feel like getting all this out will help me beat it.

    You are right about that. Writing about it, giving it the light of day does lesson the impact. From what I read, I feel there is much more that has to see the light of day. Whether you journal on blogs, or forums, or in a diary at home, your writing will help you not only cope with the issues, but will be the beginning of your healing.
