Hi, I just joined. Im 24 and I suffer from severe anxiety, I moved countries for a job and now I have no one to talk to. Ive been like this 5 years now. I try confide in people but my anxiety ruins friendships before they begin. I get irritable and needy if they don't message me back straight away, I revolve my whole life round that one person, overthink situations and end up pushing them away. I can't control my actions. All I want is friends but I keep ruining it before it begins. They think I'm a psycho and as soon as I mention mental health problem they stop talking to me. I just need somewhere to vent and get things off my chest.

I'm sorry. I moved overseas for a job but I live with family. I've pushed people away by venting too much and mentioning mental health problems. I understand the need to vent.Don't beat yourself up over your mistakes too much, but look at things from this moment forward. Try carrying a journal with you wherever you go. Write in all caps when you feel very stressed or angry. It's your journal. It should help with the need to vent. Also, I don't know if you're the religious type but prayer helps get rid of the feelings of loneliness because you know you're not walking alone. Best of luck with your new life! Poodle
