expecto patronum

Depression sucks.

I have no control over my emotions. I will be angry for two minutes and then sad again. I will be happy for half an hour and then emotional again.

So far all I've done is lay on my bed and watch episodes of Chopped.

I'm just waiting for it to pass.

I haven't felt "fine" in over 3 years. This relapse makes me feel as though I haven't made any progress at all.

I'm not sure why I'm being so candid about my depression but I suppose if someone else who has depression reads this, we can feel less alone. I have been only told a few people. Unfortunately in the last 3 weeks most of these persons have disappointed me.

I have severe trust issues I think. Nobody is infallible. I thought I chose friends carefully but turns out not really.

But really my behaviour is pathetic. Reading about Daul Kim. Listening to MCR. It is as though I'm imitating myself from 2007. Next I'll be wearing studs and guitar earrings.

I just wish...someone around me could understand what it really means to be depressed.

You know the internet is where people express themselves. But everyone complains. So when there is a serious complaint, a serious plea for help, for sympathy, it goes unnoticed. Most people just dismiss it as a plea for attention. We aren't heartless, it's just so many have grown immune and de-sensitized. I'm desensitized from reading things like this  being told over and over again.

Just so much pain.

It's pretty bad this relapse though. Tumblr and Colbert aren't helping and I always thought they would remind me this world is capable of greatness.
Still numb.

I'm the same way you're not alone. It's hard for me just to wake up in the morning.

I'm a 36 year old male and I'm in the same state of mind. I wasn't always that ways, but, years of being beaten down emotionally has taken an extreme toll and if it weren't for my children I would never get out of bed either.. The worst part for me is that I constantly think that no one will like me or accept who I am or I'll think I can't get involved because I can't afford to be hurt emotionally again. But, if I don't take a chance I'll never feel happy again.. It's a never ending cycle that's hard to break and feeling alone is the absolute worse feeling ever.

you were not alone and you are not forgotten, elisa.

RIP Elisa

I feel the same way. R.I.P. Elisa we still remember you. :( Hope more details are found in your case because the whole thing is just really mysterious.

It's difficult to read all of her posts because she reminds me so much of myself. Will I end up dead in a few years, never to accomplish anything I truly wanted?

Unknown said...

Please don't die. the world is not all bad as it seems. There are still people out there who care. I care. you can accomplish anything you desire this may sound crazy but i believe in you. if you ever want to talk about anything you have on your mind please feel free to email mE.

Hello there Elisa... i have go through all your social media , scroll until the bottom end, see your instagram pictures and read your tweets... so sad to say this but you are my reflection. We're the same age if only you were still here(how i wish). we're in the same stage of depression, same situation even. i dont have friends too in real life,Elisa. Im a hermit too, since i avoid human interaction in real life most of the time and i make friends mostly from internet like tumblr and twitter. Im a tumblr kid too, glad we're the same in this ^_^ i like to write my thoughts there, just like you. Rant about how hard life is. And how sad i am. And im hiding my tumblr too from people i know,i dont want them to pitty me and find me that pathetic. They must think "lol, get a life,go to parties, make friends, have fun" but just like what you said, its not how depression works. It might be easy for them but its so hard and almost impossible for us. i used to have small circle of friendship in real life with some people but they turned out disappointed me, just like what your friends have done to you too. And i dont know since when i choose not to trust in anyone again and prefer internet friendship. you know, im at that point where im no longer feel embarassed when my sister or parents say "dont you have friends?" I'll immediately answer i dont have any. My only friend right now(i think at least since i graduated from college a year ago) is my boyfriend. He's the only real human i interract with beside my family. And he's not always there too, so its not a big help to even have him because he is a 'normal' person who have many friends, 'life', and not to mention he's loved by many people. Its weird to have a strange feeling to ur own boyfriend but it happens to me sometimes. However, even to a person who very close to me,i feel far behind and left out. it is very heartwarming to read all your writing because i do feel less alone and i even feel familiar with all the words, the atmosphere, Even the sadness and the joy you've shared on your writing. But its sad that you're not here anymore... to know that you were all alone to go through this is killing me.. i would like to be ur best friend, but our path didnt cross earlier. im so drown to you,Elisa.. wish you would know that. And i wish in another life we can meet and be friends. Someday in another life, we wont feel this way anymore, no heartache, no pain, no loneliness, we will be mates and i promise i will never forget you until then.
With love, Anja

Im sorry for my bad english(for everyone here who might read it), warmest hug from indonesia ^^

She is died people
Someone killed her and took her phone so just get over it (i think someone killed her because she couldn't open the water tank metal door and one person alone couldnt so the person that wrote this post is not her it is the person that killed her.
If she was dead when found someone put her in the water tank of not someone drowned her so just please don't say that it is her)

thank you

This post was written in 2011, so it was written by her and not some strange unknown "killer".

It breaks my heart read all your comments, I've suffered depression and bipolar disorder and I know how Elisa feel and how you feel all, you are not alone and ask for help , express yourself , find help, do something to get away from this monster called depression, it's possible, I swear

We don't forget u Elisa

Unknown said...

She died in 2013

Unknown said...

I do not know you and I found your video by chance, I then found your blogger via Wikipedia, as I read through your posts I see the pain you had been through, you were really struggling to hold on and I know how much it hurts, I wish I had been there but unfortunately at the time I was in a youth center and I did not know you, I hope you have found your peace.

Caitlin said...

RIP, i know what its like to feel so hopeless, if only you could have gotten through it, i hope you have peace of mind nwo.

Im sorry but is this girl retarded??? Not elisa the comment above...

Elisa, I never knew you, but I feel a kinship to you reading your posts. The world lost you too soon. It feels voyeuristic and inappropriate to read these posts, but I can only hope they stand as a memorial to who you were in life, and the terrible reality of depression and mental imbalance.

And in the case that Elisa's parents or friends still monitor this, I am so sorry for your loss. I am sorry for the morbid interest of the Internet community. I am sorry that I came looking for more, looking for Elisa's mind on display. I wish I had known her, because she seemed very genuine, which is rare to find.

I hope you find your peace. And I hope she found hers. Just know that despite the inappropriate curiosity, she can be seen as she was in her writings.

You were smart. You were vulnerable. You were a risk taker. You were an introvert. You were expressive. You were beautiful. You were young. You caught someone’s attention. You didn’t deserve it. Rest in peace.

anucha said...

R.I.P. Elisa you must be in heaven by now. Or be doing something interesting in another world may be, if so I wish you the best. Better mental health and be free.

Unknown said...

Sweet Elisa. I never knew you, but I can tell you had a beautiful soul and a kind heart. You didn’t deserve what you went through- whatever happened there. RIP.

I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because lifebecame meaningless to me because I had Herpes virus, thesymptoms became very severe and bold and made my familyrun from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gaveup everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because thedoctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs butthey never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me makingit worse. I was doing some research online someday when Icame across testimonies of some people of how DR Ebhotacured them from Herpes, I never believed at first and thoughtit was a joke but later decided to contact him on the detailsprovided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent mehis herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after twoweeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptomsdisappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I wasNEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DREbhota because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep ontelling the world about you. If you are going through samesituation worry no more and contact DR Ebhota viadrebhotasolution@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348089535482.he also special on cureing 1. HIV/AIDS2. HERPES 3.

(Galatea) Ya know the story about Elisa Lam, the girl in the elevator who was hiding from something. Then she went out to talk to it, and she started waving her hands weirdly. So, I wanted to ask what did she see or what was she running from?

[ Elisa Lam Elevator footage ]

A: Golem!

Q: (Galatea) It looked like Gollum?

(L) It's a Jewish monster.

(Pierre) Made from mud.

(Galatea) It was actually a mud monster?

A: Close.

Q: (Galatea) Must freak you out to see that!

(Perceval) Did she herself climb into the water tank?

A: No

Q: (Perceval) How did she get into that water tank?

A: Spacetime distortion.

Q: (Atreides) But a golem is an instrument of revenge created by someone to kill or protect somebody else. So, if it's a golem, who sent it and why was it targeting a Canadian Chinese girl in Los Angeles?

A: Target practice. There is a reason that Galatea thought of it at this moment.

Q: (L) So, we're talking about some kind of thing that blows open realm curtains?

A: Yes

Q: (L) And things come through?

A: Yes

Q: (Atreides) So nobody sent the golem after her?

A: Not specifically.

Q: (L) So, it's just kinda like mothman or something.

(Approaching Infinity) A golem is this Jewish myth kind of thing, and they said target practice...

(L) Don't get stuck on the Jewish myth thing.

(Approaching Infinity) Yeah, but we've talked about energy weapons, and target practice. And Mossad...

(L) Golem, Kabbalists...

(Chu) And two girls missing due to spacetime distortion...

(Andromeda) And funny enough, me and Perceval just watched an episode of the X-Files about a golem a few nights ago.

(L) Oh my god!

(Andromeda) And last night it was about an airplane crash due to alien interference!

(L) Okay, creeped out now... Well, we're gonna...

(Galatea) Wait, when Elisa Lam was moving her hands in this really bizarre way in the elevator video, why was she moving her hands like that?

A: Trying to persuade the creature to leave her alone.

Q: (Perceval) Is something that only she could see?

A: Yes

Q: (Perceval) So, it kind of like created some kind of alternate reality around her, or she was transported into a parallel...

A: Partly.

Q: (Galatea) It was attuned to her specifically.

(Perceval) A bleedthrough, yeah.

(Atreides) So, what did the golem that's not a golem want from her?

A: Energy.

Q: (Galatea) Does that golem live in that specific place, or was that a one-time thing?

A: The location has useful energy patterns for such purposes.

[ Information on the hotel Elisa Lam stayed at: _ ]

Q: (L) So basically, there are just people who have these things and who like sit in their little control booths or something, and... I mean like all these missing people in this Missing 411 book... Somebody is just frickin' playing with the human race!

A: Yes
