New Emotion Support Topic
I was thinking that it would be a great idea to add "Jealousy" to the list of Emotion Support topics. It's really common emotion, so I think it deserves it's own topic instead of being put in the "Other" section if anyone wants to talk about jealousy issues.
One of the many things that fills me with happiness is... music! I love music of all kinds. Each song has a special meaning to it. When I listen to music, I can feel the rhythm and the lyrics and the emotion flowing through me. I can feel the words that the artist sings, and it's an incredible sensation to allow music to flow through you. Even the saddest of songs fill me with joy, even though they can sometimes make me cry.
This is my favorite song, shared with me from my boyfriend (which is what makes it so special!). More than that though, this song has a good beat, and the lyrics inspire a lot of hope in their own way. The song reminds us that even though someone is gone, it's not the end. As long as we remember someone, they'll live on forever.

RE: My depression is getting worse
I'm so sorry to hear that all of this has happened to you Crystal. It's really unfair when people hold high expectations for you that you have a hard time reaching. It can put such an unbearable amount of pressure on a person. In my experience, you won't be able to change your parents behavior unless they choose change themselves, but from what you've written, I'd assume you've already tried speaking with them about how you feel.
As for your weight and image problem, try surrounding yourself with good friends that will say good things about you. You really don't notice it at first, but once you start hanging around with good, confident friends that have strong morals, you'll notice a difference in your thoughts. I used to be really worried about how I looked myself. Once I met my boyfriend though, things really changed. He's a wonderful guy that showers me with compliments every day, and, despite the fact that I'm still a little self-consious about my appearance, my confidence has improved a great deal.
Dealing with depression is one of the hardest struggles there is. I know because I'm right there with you. I've only joined the site recently, so I'm only going off of what's written here, but just try taking 5 minutes a day to go over all the positive things (no negative ones!) in your life and focus on them. See if that helps you to improve your emotional state any. I hope this helps, and if not, shoot me a PM. After all, ears are meant for listening, and sometimes a good long talk can help relieve some of the stress.
There's nothing that I can think of at the moment that would encourage a growth in the number of members. I'll think on it though and get back to you.

You should also try Earl Grey tea. It's just black tea with a little bergamot orange. The bergamot removes the bitter taste that black tea has.
I'm a coffee drinker, so the bitterness in black tea doesn't bother me so much. I recently decided to quit drinking coffee though, hence the herbal teas (no caffeine!). I could definitely give it a try though. It sounds good. Thanks!
RE: Social Anxiety
Yes, it really does take a long time to adjust to interacting with more people. For me, I find that the best ways to keep myself from getting too nervous are to take a deep breath when I start stuttering or get my words twisted, straightening my posture before I start speaking again so that I'm not slouching, and making eye contact. When all else fails... well, I just smile and nod, lol.
RE: What did you eat last?
Lipton Green Tea with Citrus is my favorite kind of tea to drink. Recently, I've been trying some tea with herbs in them that my aunt gave to me. They're suprisingly good.
The last thing I ate was a cold steak that was leftover from dinner last night. x.x
