Feeling Alone

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I have recently split up with my long term girlfriend because i have issues with paranoia depression and self harm

my issues collectively have reduced my self esteem to a point byond non-exsistant, and i constantly feel alone,

i have lost all but 2 of my friends because of these issues and i find it hard to talk to people to try to make new friends, i constantly feel alone and unhappy even if im with people, and im sick of trying to hide it,

i want to get help but i dont know where/how to start

    Hi there TheFlameofHatred :wave:

    Welcome to the site and well done for reaching out! There are lots of people here who will understand where you're coming from.

    It sounds like you've been having a really hard time recently and lost some really important relationships and through all of this you've forgotten how important you are. What do you like doing to make you feel good? Are there any activities that you could join in to really boost your mood? Sometimes when you get stuck in a rut its an effort to get going but once out the door, things are often easier than you imagined.

    Perhaps it would help to read up on self harm or depression? There's loads of info to check out on the site, or if you prefer to talk to someone how about trying the samaritans?

    Whatever you get up to keep posting to let us know how you're getting along and take care:)

    Yeah that sounds tricky. Are you at college or working at the moment?

    What are your concerns about antidepressants? Could you talk to your GP about them? Perhaps you'd prefer to try a talking therapy? There are lots to choose from to suit everyone.

    finished college for the summer a few weeks ago, and im working my butt off to find a job but as of yet its been fruitless.

    an old friend of mine when on AD's and got alot worse and im scared the same will happen to me.
    and im a bit scared to open up to my doctor because i dont like admitting i have a weakness. which seems stupid when its written down....
    i shall have a look at the link about talking treatment and see how that looks.

    AD's have changed loads recently though, its all SSRI's now rather than the older hit-and-miss stuff. I think exercise is one of the most important factors in overcoming depression.

    you mean jogging and stuff? or like team sports?
    jogging could be a good idea
