I know how you feel. Try listening to Friendimacy / by Shasta Nelson on Audible, Google the Friendimacy triangle- Positivity, Consistency and Vulnerability. I had to learn how to be a friend instead of always being in crisis mode. I stumbled upon the book a few weeks ago. Hope this helps.

And I doubt COVID has helped any. It is hard to know what to say. You feel alone but you don’t want to meet new people. It is challenging to see a solution. Have you even spoken to a professional to discuss option?

You might want to try reading a book called "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. This book has been around for decades. There are even Dale Carnegie courses, but they are expensive, so I settled for the book.Reading is not enough; you have to do.

This really helped me when I was at a low point in my life in my mid 30s, due to depression.

My doctor prescribed an anti-depressant and got me some therapy. All of these actions helped me to start feeling normal (or close to it) for the first time in my life.

Best of luck in finding happiness.
