I'm new here

Hi I'm just feeling really low and upset. I always tend to have these moods which have being going on for a couple of years and I just don't want to feel like this anymore. I know the reasons for my low moods and upset is my mom passing away even though It's been 8 years Its the only person I was close to and I'm not close to anyone else in the family. I don't have anyone to talk to about my problems or just everyday chit chat as I'm not close to anyone and have distanced myself from others which has resulted in me having social anxiety as I get nervous around people / groups as I believe all eyes are on me. I sometimes don't talk to someone unless the other petson taljs to me first ( it sounds really silly). I feel like I haven't achieved what I want or I'm at a place in my life where I feel happy I just feel drained, emotional upset and sad. I've had counselling in the past but I still feel the same way I do. All I want to do is feel better about myself.

Hi Lou,

Hope you are keeping well, I can't relate to how you must feel about your mum passing which I am very sorry for, but for the social anxiety I would consider talking to your GP and maybe asking about 1 to 1 or Group CBT. This helped me so much when I found it hard to walk past groups of people, talk to people and just socialize in general, I met some really lovely people that were all in the same boat and you realize you are not alone. It helps change the way you think about certain situations and helps learn what the triggers are (of which you already know)

I wish you all the best and good luck
