Too hard on myself

I have been through a lot.. overcome some things that take some people lifetimes.. I'm a month or less out from a program where I came off the last psych med that I became dependent on. I feel like I am ugly, useless, and like I'm a waste of time to talk to, I don't know where this comes from. I have no friends right now. They all kind of left me behind when I started my journey to get off my meds. I haven't started seeing a therapist yet I'm going to try to get one asap.. but they usually don't help. I'm not sure what to do. I gained some weight I was up to 264 and now I'm 256after about 2 weeks of exercise and diet. I just feel like there's no point to anything because I feel so alone. I don't know why I feel so alone or what to do.

I don't buy that, Alex0393, you are not a waste of time to talk to, I have read your posts and you know how to express yourself and make it sound interesting. Maybe you experience low self esteem and I believe Cognative Behavioural Therapy is effective in dealing with that.

You say you have no friends, well there are 7.5 billion prospective friends out there, you just have to get to know some of them. You have managed to get yourself off meds and you've lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks, you have self discipline, not everybody has. Before long you will get to know new people and make friends, of course you will, just give it a little time and things will come your way, just watch for the opportunities when they come your way. Like they say: tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life!

sorry to hear youre going through this right now. as jeff said, ive also seen some of your other posts and you sound like a thoughtful intelligent person. its great youre exercising. that usually helps to lift the spirits.

Your so much better then you think ,keep pushing to do your best ,if any of those people were your friends they will stand by you no matter what... Things will get better it just takes time . Im going thought my struggle myself with anxiety and depression I have driving anxiety also and I sometimes feel like giving up but i keep pushing for the best and im doing ok but i have faith that it will get better not sure when but my plans is to keep trying until i get thought it. I will keep you in prayer.....

Never give up, for all the ones that sacrificed to allow us to have the opportunity to get better, and ourselves because you deserve it. Cheers :)
