Well I'm pretty new to the forums. I can't say I'm suicidal, but I'm going through an incredibly rough time right now. I'm pretty much wiped out by depression, and finding myself nearly unable to work, and I'm starting to get worried I might lose my job. The problem I'm having is that nobody outside my work environment wants to talk to me for any more than about a week. Both online and offline. I'm almost certain that I'm not saying or doing anything wrong. But everyone just throws me away, or gives me the brush off. It's gotten incredibly painful, and I really need someone to talk with online for help. I've also got some really difficult issues I have to deal with in my home life. I really can't afford to go to any therapist or anything, since I would be looked down upon at my job for doing that. I'd be immensely thankful if there is someone out there who would be willing to chat with me.. I'm more than happy to chat with you about your problems too.. This seems like one of the few places I've ever found where people are not ostrasized for emotional needyness.
