    It seems the only thing I have to look forward to in my life is my upcoming therapist appointment ont he 20th of December. I'm so alone and it hurts so bad.

    I can relate. I am seeing my psychiatrist on the 29th this month and I really have nothing else to look forward to. I am lonely too, but at least you and I are not alone in feeling this way. :sad: I understand.

    Thanks for the reply... I hate that we have to suffer through this loneliness. I just joined these forums and it's almost too hard to type anything... it's like I have a lot of things to say but I just don't have the energy to say them :(

    Hi dusty9838.

    I've had a time without friends and it was very painful... just bad for my self-image/self-esteem. Lately I've been going to casinos and made some friends there and that makes a difference.

    How come you are lonely? Did you drop out of school, or do you not have a job (anymore)?

    You can do something about your loneliness, but it does take some work often.

    If you have the energy please tell some more about you. This place is perfect for letting others know what's going on inside of you. And you might even find some good ideas and definitely support. Take care.

    Hi Severijn,

    Basically this past year has been rough for me. I have no real issues with self esteem but it is definately hard for me to make friends. My girlfriend of over 10 years recently left me with no closure... she was someone I trusted and confided in and never thought this would ever happen... and I can't wrap my mind around it or come to terms with it. My one best friend recently got serious with his new girlfriend and is getting on with his life so it's not like I have anyone close that I can talk to about my problem. My grandmother who was like my mom passed away less than a year ago and all of this happening to me has isolated me tot he point where I can barely withstand the suffering I'm feeling.

    I've never felt so alone in my life and I'm 31 years old... I feel like I'm at the halfway point of my life and have nothing to look forward to except this depression and loneliness.
