I like being alone. But not like this.

I can’t describe the kind of loneliness and pain I am currently through. I can’t talk to anyone about what I’m really feeling. I literally have no friends to turn to. I just got out of a 3 year relationship. My first relationship. And as gay guy. It’s been 13 weeks now, and I’m still struggling to cope. We didn’t end things badly. He broke up with me and asked if all the things he mentioned was true or not and I agreed. We both decided it’s better. We still care so much for each other but ae don’t really talk. I stayed with him for those 3 years and now I had to move back to my hometown with my parents. Now my support system (parents) are not that great. They don’t know how to deal with someone going through what I’m feeling. We can’t discuss it. Ever since o was a child also. Nothing. They also don’t fully accept that I’m gay and they think it is a choice. So I just sit with my thoughts. Alone. Going insane. I’ve been praying to God to help me every night. I’m seeing my psychiatrist next week after waiting for these past 12 weeks. Finally. Someone can finally sit and listen to my story. I hope he can help. Because I feel lost. And and also I’ve been diagnosed with severe depression, anxiety and bipolar since 2016. So it’s total hell for me. #Nofriends #breakup #heartbreak #lonely #lost #Someonesaveme #BipolarDepression #Anxiety #Grief

Having a bit of an emotional breakdown

Could you share some cute pet photos, memes, quotes or anything that might help a little ? Thanks so much if anyone can, or to keep me in their thoughts.

#Insomnia #Exhaustin #OCD #ADHD #Autism #Anxiety #anxious #Fear #Nofriends

I am really exhausted today. My sleep patterns were already out of wack, but 2 years into this fear pandemic has messed my internal clock even more. It’s been 2 years I already have hardly any friends, the few I do have I hardly get to see. It’s near impossible to meet people and make new friends when people are still living in a lockdown like lifestyle. This has all contributed to my #Depression and lack of 😴. It seems to me that this style of living is doing more bad than good. This isn’t living. Like said in WallE I don’t want to survive I want to live! This whole fear pandemic is not mentally healthy. It’s no wonder that people are having more anxiety, lack of sleep, fear. Is anyone else going through this?

I am so exhausted today. And anxious. I just feel worn down physically and mentally. I am lonely I don’t have many friends and the few I have I rarely get to see. This adds to my depression and exhaustion. I’m ready for this Fear and lockdown mentality to stop. It’s doing more damage psychologically than it’s worth. The eternal isolation is draining me. Being stuck in a fear pandemic has messed with my sleep schedule.
The fear that is exhibited is by others is making me anxious 😥 All this has left me drained. On top of that I’m starting to feel like Ambros Monk from the show Monk. I didn’t have agoraphobia before covid but I feel like I’m developing it, and I hate it! I ask for prayer 🙏


I need help

Im paralyzed. Autistic spectrum, ADHD, ANXIETY, manic depression, OCD

Both of my grandparents passed away with a month of each other this past Dec. They were like parents to me as both of mine are dead.

I lost my job at the same time and I’m losing my home. I’m trying really hard but it’s been becoming increasingly difficult to manage my symptoms. I’m on Adderall and lexapro. Ive tried anxiety meds and I’m waiting on the next one - my dr has been on vacation for 3 weeks. He out a week of every month. I have no health insurance but trying to sign up for a clinic nearby.

I just need help with the day to day. I can’t get anything done because I’m managing myself trying to get unstuck. i feel paralyzed everywhere.

I have no family now and I have no friends anymore. I live alone and have no outlets and I can’t live like this anymore. I just need a real friend. Or some direction. Thanks. #help #Autism #ADHD #lost #nofamily #Nofriends


Can someone help me #unpack this? ALL Honest POV welcomed! #friendshipstruggles

So I have this really random, possibly extremely shallow, idea to only have female #Friends that are not straight or more on the same sex spectrum than I am.

Here me out.... I’ve sometimes seem to find girl friends that were not really my friends... (healthy friendships have came and gone but those ended mostly bc of me) like we could hang out and have great times but it was chitter chatter behind my back and always making me seem as if being me came at a cost to them. Mind you I’m an easy target bc I avoid confrontation bc I don’t know how to control my anger once it released. (long story....)

Anyways back to the topic: making friends with girls that like the same sex or more attracted to the same sex. See I wouldn’t have to deal with the insecurity for trying to be chosen... sounds sad right but it’s a start for me anyways. I have #Nofriends after deciding on what I can and cannot deal with in a friend.......

So I would like to invite everyone who reads this to share an idea in the comments! Please no hate and respect their POV. #LetsTalkAboutIt #Advice

Is it an stigma or embarrassment?

I barely have any friends or well wishers left. My grief, trauma, depression I’m practically nursing on my own. The loneliness of dealing with it alone is even more excruciating. Even to talk about it is embarrassing and enervating and even to those few I have shared don’t respond in any meaningful way. Indeed they themselves are at a loss I guess and also I think people feel very unsure, confused and embarrassed to commiserate with an afflicted me. My acute depression, spouses ill health and to make matters worse, a painful separation is seen a stigma and it’s less delicate and easier to ignore such folks. Of course with deep sense of hurt, rejection and a sense of vulnerability, I seek some empathy, encouragement and vindication. But none so forthcomes. I reckon power as a mediator, as an arbiter in relationships is never far and any overt empathizing and proclamations made so makes us feel vulnerable to even an aggrieved and wreckeds’ seeming guiles and manipulation. Don’t know how many others feel similarly - struggling and barely coping with the horror of combating grief and shock in complete loneliness with none to provide any support or succour. Like in the photo, I feel like this building falling apart and none to sit with. The empty chairs says it all.
It’s so embarrassing and even undignifying to admit ones vulnerability like this and cry out! 😢 #Loneliness #Grief #Nofriends #severeanxiety #Depression #SuicidalThoughts


Worst Day Ever. #relapsepotential #hurting #Nofriends #why ?

Yesterday I got verbally attacked by 16 people inside of an enclosed medical office because individuals around me were not social distancing and another person was blaring politically divisive media from their cell phone without headphones and I simply asked very, very, politely for them to put on headphones and for the people going to and fro to please understand that I'm immunocompromised and on humira and a caretaker of senior citizens. I ended up being escorted outside by security as 16 people threatened to beat me down in addition to many other despicable displays of inhuman behavior. It's been over 24 hours since all of this happened and I've almost relapsed three times. I feel so alone and so worthless. The security guard at the medical office was not doing his job, he is intimidated by the population that attends this place, it being a methadone clinic; and so he just walks around looking scary from opening to closing time. He apologized to me after everything was said and done but the facility manager took no responsibility and just told me to come at a different time during the day so I could avoid violent demonstrations from people who refuse to follow the rules. I don't have the energy to go into too much detail about what happened but I would say if I had time to: 9 out of 10 people would say that what happened was despicable and easily avoidable. The worst part about it is that being an addict, stuff like that really affects me. Just imagine 16 ex-cons and all kinds of other angry looking people screaming at you, treating you as if you were less than nobody when you are sick and just trying to protect yourself from further illness. I think what made it the most painful was that about 20 years ago my first husband beat me to a pulp in front of all of our mutual friends and everyone just stood in a circle and watched as he pounded me on the ground and spit in my face until I was a bloody pile of spit and scabs. Yesterday really opened up that wound it felt very similar, nobody stood up for me I had to fend off all these people by myself and I can't shake this feeling of worthlessness and wanting to use. All the best, Julia
