Loneliness/Suicidal thoughts

sadandlonelyinspain profile image

Last night some stuff happened (family drama). Afterwards I was upset and angry but mostly I just felt very alone. I kept wishing I had someone I could talk to and hug in that moment but I don’t have anyone that I’m close with. I felt very, very lonely and it was one of those times when it doesn’t seem like those feelings will go away and I can’t stop thinking very negative things. I get upset easily and I don’t really have healthy coping mechanisms. I wish I could move out of my mother’s house but I don’t have the means to do it and I don’t think I will anytime soon. It’s very discouraging. I barely got any sleep last night and today isn’t going great so far, I hope tonight is better and that I’ll feel a bit better tomorrow.

I gather you are in Spain ?

What has made you so unsettled, How can we help. We are in the UK.

Do you have a Doctor you use out there ?


Yes I am in Spain. I should go see a doctor but I have major issues with socialization.

Make your Appointment, also a list of your needs and problems associated with your condition. Give a copy of the list to the Doctor, this will help you explain how you feel
