Loneliness

A few months ago, I broke up with my ex. That marked just about the 100th thing that hasn't worked out for me in the past couple years. My parents got divorced, was in a mentally abusive relationship, was essentially homeless, got robbed, joined the military, hated it and returned home just to find out my girlfriend was talking to her ex again. And suddenly, here I am with little friends and single as ever. I just feel like I don't really have anyone, and when I reach out to people, they rarely reply to me. I feel worthless sometimes. I feel like most girls just ignore me, too. I've been diagnosed and prescribed antidepressants, and every day is a struggle.

I’m sorry things are so difficult for you right now. When it seems so many thing are going wrong in life, depression has a way of taking over. I know things seem hopeless right now, but you are doing something about it by getting on antidepressants and you are reaching out to us as well. When I get really depressed it helps if I journal and write all my feelings down. My counselor tells me to write three good things that happen each day as well. She has also told me to do one fun thing every day. Walking or exercising are also helpful. I hope you will try some of these things even if you start out slow and do just one thing. If you are able to go to a counselor that would be great, the right counselor can help tremendously. Depression is difficult but with the right medicine and a good counselor it will get better!

I have the same issue with “friends”. I legit have no friends anymore and idk why. I agree to write in a journal. I have found it calms me down. Instead of bitching to a friend I’m writing it down and find a little piece of mind when I’m

Finished. I’m also on an antidepressant and ever since starting it, I’ve felt a lot better. Still have my down days as will you, but it gets better. I would try to stay as positive as you can . I recently went into amazon and saw they had a lot of books on anxiety and depression and thought about reading some. Not sure if you’re a reader but you could try that.
