    Missing Friendship - Can anybody relate?

    Feeling a bit lonely today guys, can anyone advise? ❤

    Probably like a few of you on here lots of my 'friends' abandoned me 2 1/2 years ago when I got sick.

    I tried to stay positive as I had 3 separate girls who I thought were 'keepers' I've been hearing less and less replies from them over the past 6 months.

    Yesterday I messaged all 3, and none have replied. I feel even more lonely then before I messaged them.

    There's nothing worse than feeling alone, when having friends is something you want.

    I don't even know where to find anybody new. I find myself talking too much to anyone now doctors, nurses etc. Just because I don't have anybody else. It hurts.

    What is worse is that it's my 'best friends' and my 10 year anniversary since we met this month, we were literally so close this is something we would have celebrated. she doesn't seem interested. She was like my family but seems to have moved on with new friends, as she's moved to another nearby town.

    When she does message me im always hearing about a 'friend' when I ask what she's been up to.

    Messages used to be often but now it's always 'sorry I didn't realise I didn't reply' or 'sorry I didn't send a reply i typed' or 'I completely forgot to reply' daily now. Where she's obviously messaging others and forgets about me.

    I just feel at such a loss. I'm lucky to have an amazing husband but it's not the same as girl time.

    Can anybody else relate? Sorry for rant. Happy Sunday everybody lots of love xx

    Hi from the shadows

    I've been on this app a lot, always just reading, never posting.

    I'm sure I'm not alone, but I joined this app and others like it to try and find distraction from the crazy world that's in between my ears. The place that the bad version of me lives, and he's trying everything to bring me down.

    I'm slowly but surely trying to break the patterns of behaviour I've found myself in over the last several decades. I'm just thankful I've found things like this app to keep me stepping forward despite the inner voice trying to drag me back.

    I don't know if I will be of any help, but I'm promising to start posting and commenting more in the future. In the shadows is what my head wants and that's got to stop.

    Anyway...only came on to say hi 🙃🙈 have a great Easter everyone.

    Anyone to talk to?

    Hi, I’m Maisy a 19 year old from the UK. I’ve gone the last 3 years of my life understanding, dealing and coming to terms with my depression. I’m writing this in an episode, as I don’t know what else to do that’s going to make me feel some sort of relief. All I want is to chat to people that understand and/or relate to what I’m feeling. I wake up already tired, struggling to get out of bed, shower, feed myself, dress etc. Some days are normal; I can get on with my life, but I always come back to the same thought and consequently my downfall: the future. It terrifies me. I suppose its the anxsb that triggers the lows. I’ll overthink every thought about the future, analysis other peoples lives thinking ‘why can’t I do that’. And yes I know I’ve got literally my whole life ahead of me, which is a great thing, but also so overwhelming. I feel guilt everytime I stay in bed past 10 and that makes me end up staying in bed half the day or even days sometimes. My friends help me, however I know they don’t understand what I’m feeling or how my mind works. It’s so hard being trapped in your own brain, there’s been countless times I’ve wished I could have been someone, anyone else. I just wish for someone around my age to see this so we can help eachother together. Any suggestions on talk groups for young people suffering with mental illness would help. :) x #Depression #UK #Teen #lost
