A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

New pill will numb those feelings.

Having suffered with depression for years, even being diagnosed with fibromyalgia at one time, I'm no stranger to medication. But it really shocked me when my counselor told me that I could make a decision to either deal with the emotions and problems I was currently going through or take a new medication that would "numb" me.
I chose the new medication....I knew in my heart the problem would fade away.
