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.

Advocacy for employees in the uk?

I need support at work as I feel I'm being treated in an inequitable way in relation to my Bipolar disorder by my Employer, and Trade Union. I work and live in the uk.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Two places iv tried say employment stuff is out of there remit...

Can you not be an employee when you have mental health?!
