Please help me!

I am extremely depressed and my anxiety is very high. I live on my own and I feel very alone and isolated. People don't understand me and they judge me.I have got no friends to go to or to call. I am very frightened! I would appreciate it very much if anyone can help me. I feel very worthless since I don't worth anything to anybody and got no perpose in life. I don't see a reason for me to be here at all. I am very sorry if this upsets anyone. I don't mean to upset anybody.

  • Debbie445, you sound like a beautiful person who is feeling lost and alone in fear. Please talk with us. You are never alone on the forum. We all understand what it is like to live with high anxiety. We do care and support each other. x

  • Thank you for replying. It means the world to me. One other person replied but the site won't let me reply to the two of you together. I think I was pressing the right reply button but I don't know. I have never done this before except when I did my first post when I was joining but I have never done a reply .

  • Debbie, you did just fine. In order to reply to another person, press their reply button and it will send it to them. There are so many of us on this forum. Both men and women of all ages, so don't be surprised if you get a lot of replies. Anything special you would like to talk about? I know how it is to feel scared and alone. I learned a long time ago that unless the people around you understand anxiety issues, they are not going to be around for long. It's just the way it is. What they can't see, they can't understand. You took the first step of not being alone anymore. I really welcome you to the forum. x

  • hi. You've come to the right place, I feel worthless to its the depression telling us that, which isn't helping the anxiety and vice versa. You'll get a job that's right for you, hang in there.

    we'll all be you're friends here keep in touch sending hugs x

  • Thank you for replying.. I don't know how to reply all of you at the same time so I am going to have thank you all one at a time. I can't work because I am disabled. I just stay in the house all day with nothing to do. I just stay in bed all the time. I can't sit or stand for more than ten minutes without been in a lot of pain. I have got no distractions what so ever.

  • Debbie445, for whatever reason you have ended up in a cul-de-sac and it is time you reached out to other people. You need to get to know other people and eventually make friends. Most of us make friends where we work as we spend a big chunk of our waking life there, I don't know if you're working or retired but maybe if you changed your job and join some organisation that employs lots of people. Or if you're retired do some voluntry work, maybe working for a charity.

    Debbie445, it's clear from your message that you are in a position to offer much to the world and the community you live in. Life is a great adventureand you should look at it that way, so I say again: reach out and enter your own, there are things in life that interest you so try to build a new social life round those interests. The first step is always the most difficult one but once taken the next one is easier. I wish you the success you deserve in building a better life.

  • Very well put!

  • Worthless is one of those words I have often used during times of bad depression. I used to feel like I was the only one on the planet not getting along in life. Not doing anything. It took a lot to realize that everyone even you and I have a purpose in life. And if ya need to talk feel free to message me if you want. :-) :-)

  • Thank you very much. I am new here and not very good with technology. How do I message you?

  • Thanking you all for replying. I just figured out how to talk to you all at the same time time. Funny I actually did press the comment button before but it didn't work. So I thought I was doing something wrong. Sorry.

  • Debbie445, I understand about your disability, but remember that the internet is your window on the world. There are thousands of people out there including us on this forum, you must have common interests with so many people. So I still say: reach out to them and get to know them.

    May I ask if there is any chance of improvement with your disability?

  • Debbie445 Hi Honey People Who Judge You Don't Have To Live With What You Have They Judge Because They Don't Understand What U Go Through. It's not very nice to have anxiety and panic attacks and I don't like being alone either it scares me because it takes over your entire body and mind.I've downloaded a app on my phone called anxiety and it's a women talking with soothing music in the background and she actually calms me down as she's telling me to breathe slowly and she reassures u my counsellor told me to try it glad I did I àlso watch telly or read a book I know it sounds daft but I shout at my anxiety "come on do your worst" if anyone heard me they would think I'm going mad lol.just remember darling it will pass however long it lasts it will pass and your not on your own we r all here going through the same thing we've got ya xx

  • Debbie my heart goes out to you. I'm on disability too and live alone, isolated. For decades I've lived thousands of miles away from any blood relatives, and that's after a dysfunctional childhood of not growing up with parents/being thrown around diff. states/relatives. My faith brings me some comfort, do you have any interest in church stuff? whether yes or no, just know I'm praying for you and everyone here . don't know if it's appropriate or even how to do it, but if you can private msg people here maybe we can exchange phone numbers to talk. i get panic attacks from feeling all alone, and last year had a breakdown from loneliness/obsessive fears of growing old alone a homeless bag lady,, and ended up in a hospital inpatient at psych ward. So believe me I know how awful loneliness is. People judge me too. i'm thankful for a few friends, but no one can really relate, and everyone is too busy to hang out or even talk regularly. So most of the time i'm alone and hate it. If i can find out how, do you want me to private msg you my phone #, or do you want to msg me yours? Blessings
