I am 40 yrs old, and have being suffering from depression and anxiety since I was a child. I have being on medication and counseling for a long time; but I still feel feel very sad, stress, anxious and frustrated. I don't have much of a social life cause I don't have but one friend and very little family. Plus, I also have some medical problems with my spine, including chronic pain. I work everyday, and try the best to do a very good job; but I only talk to a very few people at work. I want to do better in regards to social skills and friendships but it's so hard. Any tips, ideas or suggestions?

  • I would suggest you start to make friends at work and that way you can at one point become friends outside of work. I would pray about it too, I will pray God sends you comfort and he also send companionship.

  • Thank you Lenney!

  • It is just awful having mental illness, isn't it? I applaud you for working every day. That is a great accomplishment for you. Hopefully you will learn to trust some coworkers and can mingle with them. I have very limited friends and family myself, so I can understand how you may feel. I've also had BP, etc. since I was very young. I am now 42 and feel it gets worse with age. Sorry I have no advice, but I want to let you know that I do understand. Take Care.

  • Thank you
