23 and Struggling

I’ve been struggling with my mental health since I was around 14. I’ve had about three suicidal episodes in my life. I’m always so anxious and sad. I take medication and I feel like it helps but socially, I’ve been struggling. I don’t have any friends I can reach out to. I recently started talking to a guy and we had a good connection but he just stopped talking to me. It hurts and it’s been hard to focus on anything other than the lack of people I have to reach out.

Hi Sarah, I have a similar situation. I have been fighting anxiety and depression for most my life. Meditation helps some. But if you want to vent to someone. I could use someone to talk to myself

Do you have social media, what about high school friends, you should reach out or say hi

Sorry to hear your struggles. Honestly I’ve dealt with the same thing in regards to being lonely and not having a lot of friends. I started getting involved in a church recently and made some new friends. I know it’s not easy, but just try and get involved with either church or some other kind of social circle and just put yourself out there and try to make yourself feel better by making some new friends.
