Hi everyone. I've come on here as I've been feeling increasingly anxious, sad and isolated over the past year or so in particular, and I am struggling with bereavement along with perimenopausal problems among other things. I seem to have got myself into a rut in which I can't seem to trust people or make new friends anymore. I feel like everyone I meet their lives are just so different to mine and that they think I'm a freak! At least they would do if they knew what my life was like!
