Hey, Life for me has always been challenging. I seem to cope by avoidance and denial. I would rather not know something that would upset me, prefer to be in the dark on such matters.* People are so mean, I just don't understand why. I am very sensitive, the smallest things can upset me and then I feel like getting the hell out of what ever situation I'm in. I'm only nice to people, but always get such attitude back, someone I thought was my friend said to me, they don't want to be friends, they have enough friends already. Ouch! This is the first time someone has said this to me aloud, but I'm sure this happens quietly all the time and this is so sad. I would have done anything to help this person out, yet I can't even make it on their friends list. All this happened a few months ago but I still can't get over it. I have practically no close friends at the moment, I get lonely all the time. Feels like people already have their own circles of friends and they are unwilling to let anyone else in. I'm on anti-depressants for depression and anxiety. I have also been diagnosed with social anxiety. I can manage in groups of people sometimes, I will feel totally comfortable at times, but if anything makes me slightly uncomfortable, well, it's all downhill from there. Guess I'll end things off there. This is my first post, so just trying this out. Hope this helps me sort through all my muddled emotions.
