    Marijuana Use and Depression

    I started smoking marijuana at the age of 16. I would limit myself to only doing it once a week until I was about 17 with a few months until my 18th birthday. Around that time I started smoking daily. It wasn't until I started using daily, that I noticed I didn't feel right. I can remember the day when I came into school (high school) and almost felt like I was high..even though I wasn't. I should have stopped right then and there, but I didn't. I continued smoking at least once a....

    Not knowing what to do anymore!

    I feel like everything is hitting me at once. I'm use to taking on a lot, but I feel like I cant anymore. Its getting to the point where I just don't want to do anything. The minute something starts to bother me my body just shuts down. I feel sick constantly. I know that this probably doesn't make sense to anyone but its just how I feel.

    I feel like I'm alone

    No matter how many people are around me I still feel so alone. No one knows how I feel inside, how hard it is to fake my happiness.

    I've been depressed for the past 20 yrs. It comes in cycles. The most recent is the worst yet. I don't see anyway out of the hole I've fallen in. Talking to family is not an option. No one would understand. Friends are nonexsistant. I am well and truely isolated. I can go days without saying a word and no one notices. I guess I just want someone to hear me. To acknowledge me. To prove that I do exsist. It gets harder every day to get out of that bed.

Not wanting the illicit drugs & active alcoholism around was the biggest reason knowing it would become dangerous for me to live around the amount of addiction that I did. Addiction, Mental Illness & Violence are a deadly combination no matter what as it affects & destroys families in many ways as that's why....

    Does anyone else feel this way?

    I feel like scared that nothing will work out, everything could go bad, I own a company and feel like its never going to do well even though it does.
