5-14-2000.  The Start of Something New Journal.  22 Years Old.  It has been a real long time since I was really happy about anything.  I laugh at times but there always seems to be that cloud that always turns the bad side out.  Some would say that it is depression but I think no, me depressed, no that’s not like me.  When I see or hear about people depressed I think of them sad all the time, not being social and staying home.  Their face and body posture appear heavy and when they talk their voice is slow and low.  These qualities are ones not associated with me at this time and so the notion of depression is wiped out.  But, could this unhappy feeling I’m experiencing be the start of depression to come?  And if so, then how can I stop it before I’m the person above?
