Feel totally alone and lost

Today I just feel totally numb, all I wanna do is sit and cry. My family aren't helping at all, my mum is making me more stressed and worried and she just doesn't understand she takes it completely personal and I need her to be there for me. My sisters no help she just snaps at me and sides with my mum and my dad pretty much just talks to me when he has to. I have nobody to talk to I don't wanna burden my friends with my problems. I just wanna scream and run away and be on my own for a while. I don't feel like myself anymore and I feel like I'm at a loose end :(

Awe I read your post and I'm so sorry your having such a rough time. What's going on? I'm here to listen and I will try n help u as best I can. I know how you feel believe me. I'm suffering from severe health anxiety and it's been a rough road.


Hello there, sorry your home support system is not helping. I think for our families it can be frustrating because they feel helpless. Family is an important support system, but it is not the only one. I hope you know that there are people here wiling to listen.


Feeling alone can happen when we are anxious or deppressed, even in a home enviroment.

You need someone to talk this over with, maybe a relative who you are close to, it will become easier when you talk about it.......there are many help lines you can speak in absolute confidence, and if persists please speak to your doctor who can help you......GB x


Hi 2Sara1. I just wanted to say you are not alone feeling like this. I have felt this way due to anxiety and depression and was recently getting okay when I found out the man I loved passed away and now I feel so lost and alone again.

It got easier from the anxiety over time and just talking to a friend helps. If you have any close friends talk to one of them. If you want to talk to me or someone on here then do. You are not alone, please believe that.

Hi there please don't feel alone there are folk on here that are willing to help. Sorry your family are not there for you. Don't feel you are a burden to your friends. If they are really true friends they will be willing to listen. A problem shared is a problem halved after all. Also seek help from your gp they may offer meds or even counselling or both. I know that's it's not easy trusting someone with how you feel but it's sure worth it in the end. My family are not there for me but I have great friends support without them I don't know where i would be. Feel free to drop me a line if you wish sometimes talking to a complete stranger helps.

I try and do at least 3 things that are productive every day so I've something to be proud of when I'm feeling crap.

Big hugs
