What's New in Loneliness

Trying to cope!

My best friends death anniversary is coming up, and I just feel so lonely and sad. I feel like I can’t talk to the people around me about it. #MentalHealth #Suicide

3 sushi pieces and some Cheetos

Hi guys, ate today, macaroni and pasta for lunch, then almost nothing for supper, and no company, so a bit sad, this Saturday afternoon, so would love a chat with a friend, no lawn party since i've been in this town comin on 10 years now, instead loneliness and SI, I know I'm not the only one, I like to roam with my feet, almost that down now and no roaming, find myself in sombre places, what about you, maybe I will put a graveyard scene on, love, btw I have pumpkin pie and whip cream, if you'd like some


I’m new here!

Hi, my name is Shay. I'm here because life is difficult sometimes, specially connecting with people and finding the necessary support. Sometimes I just want to talk, but loneliness hits and I feel I have nowhere to run. I hope I can change this for the better in this platform where people get together for a common goal.

I have been very low and lonely here the past few weeks, I was hoping to find a pin pal. Someone to help keep my spirts up and the darkness away.

On my mind

Most Of today, i felt sad and lonely because i dont have anyone outside of therapy i can trust to be there when my mental health is being weird. Between the disassociation and emotions fluctating extremely throughout the day, it's hard to tell what i feel a certain way.

For instance, i'd react to a trivial thing like a customer being upset with me at work As an entirely earthshattering Moment. I'm not kidding, receiving feedback from management about a complaint made me cry too long. It was catastrophic.

I also have severe abandonment issues, so i worry about losing my friends constantly. And when they're not able to give me the attention i need because they're dealing with their own stuff, i get teary-eyed. And i feel more isolated.

I don't know how to fix this. Depression is the last thing i need right now. Working through trauma can be difficult, so i get overwhelmed and exhausted easily. I just feel so alone. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorderBPD #Depression #Anxiety #MentalHealth #struggling
