Feel Lost and Alone


I have zero family support and my friends have no idea what I’m going through. They are really associates and they have problems of their own and I don’t want to bring them down. I’m a product of child abuse all forms of abuse. I have drank a lot lately and it wasn’t helping me. It was only hurting me. I can’t afford therapy and it is very hard for me to sleep at night. I have four jobs and I am going to nursing school. I’m raising two teenagers on my own. I meditate, work out, journal, draw, listen to music, read everything I can think of to love myself emotionally. I can’t sleep at night. I don’t know what else to do so I thought I would try these online support groups. If anyone has ANY suggestions on how I can love myself emotionally other than what I’m already doing or knows someone I can talk to for free about it that can help. Please reply.

Hi,actually i don't know who you are but it's okay.i would like to tell you i'm also a person like you.when you feel alone you can do whatever a thing which makes you happy like movies,vedios etc.drugs are not a solution.think how valueble you are.

Thanks Sashu I don’t know you either. But you officially have a online friend for life☺️😇 I try all those things sometimes they help distract me. They never really help reach me. But I fake it until I make it as I heard someone say lol. Thank you for replying

It is a terrible feeling, loneliness. I am going through the same type of problems so I do understand your pain. It is very hard to understand how we can be in so much mental anguish and no one seems to care. But most if the time we let our pride get in the way when trying to find or ask for help. I am an extremely proud person and any signs of weakness are taboo. At least that is what I thought. The truth of the matter is most people have no idea of our pain because we are so good at hiding it for fear of showing weakness or burdening others with our problems. True friends and caring family will help if asked. Just simply opening up to them although a frightening thought is the most important first step. Now please believe me when I say "I do feel your pain". But you have made progress already by joining this group. What you can't find from friends or relatives to comfort you through this sad journey you most certainly will find that comfort and love and understanding here. I pray for your healing to begin now. Know that someone does care.🌞

Awwwe thank you❤️ That means a lot. I won’t find any comfort through family. My friends most likely not. I have already found comfort here and continue to. Thank you for your words of encouragement I needed to hear them. Trying to function..... I have a final this morning. Wish me luck!
