    Hi, I'm singularity. I'm a 20 year old university student from Australia. I study chemistry, biology, philosophy and psychology. I've suffered from depression since I was about 15. I used to cut myself, but I stopped that a long time ago. I've been prescribed antidepressants (sertraline and venlafaxine), but their effect has been varied. There are tonnes of things that bother me, but at the present my biggest problem is that I'm basically socially isolated. I just feel like I'm sub-human for being so isolated. I don't know if it's because I'm depressed or if it's because I'm just different, but it's very rare for me to meet somebody that I enjoy being around. I've only found four such people and now they either hate me or are un-contactable. I recently met somebody that I really liked, but I've just found out that she's moving to America that puts me back at square 1. There's so much more to say, but maybe it's too much for an introduction. Basically, I feel absolutely awful. I had to skip some of my lectures today because I was thinking about certain things which seriously upset me. So I caught a train to some deserted place and just cried. I just feel like swallowing whatever pill I can find with a bottle of gin. I don't know what to do. That's the present and past 5 years in a nutshell.

    Hi and welcome.
    I'm also a Uni student and I can relate to the isolation felt in Uni. I'm also currently dealing with social alienation issues at the present. Feel free to MP me if you feel like you need to talk!
