    Hi,
    Google has everything lol. Im 23 and never been socially accepted, i was a late bloomer so in school so everyone ignored me because of it. I have alot of suicidal thoughts and tired od'ing twice, once with penicillin and once with 96 caffiene tablets (i know lol). I spend 90% of my day in my room watchin TV and sleeping. Im getting pretty annoyed now, i want to be able to go out and enjoy life (ie, laugh, love and cry etc). Please someone help me.

    Hello Palm,
    I know how you feel! I have been a isolationist for 15 years. I have come to terms with it. I have been able to venture out of the house a little at a time. What you need is a good therapist.
    I will never get rid of these feelings, I just live with them. I get suicidal every now and then, I have learned to live with that also. My therapist says that if that is where you are comfortable then so be it. Nothing says you have to get out and socialize.
    Get yourself a good therapist and let her/him teach you how to cope!! Trust me it makes a big difference!! Good Luck...:chopper:..

    Try signing up for a social activity, it helps when the people around you share a common interest that you can all relate to, it gives you something to talk about. I met some nice people last year when I went to get my diver's license, a friend is on close terms with all the guys on the track team with him and so on. Like anything, if you're nervous about taking the plunge it helps to do it in small steps and build up until you feel you're ready for bigger things. I'd say a gathering of people you already know have something in common with you is a good place to start.

    Hi paulm. I think you need to try spending some time outdoors, like going for a bike ride or even just going to the mall. Spending most of your day in your room must get boring after a while. You have to meet new people and try different things. :hug:

    Hey Paul, I can relate to how you feel. I spend 100% of the time in my room, I never socialize with anyone.I have been to N.I before , I have to agree with you its a depressing place(im from the south). Have you tried therapy? Are you on any medication? :hug:

    finding something to do is tough, i typically use that as my excuse to not try when i'm feeling defeatist, but as you know the internet has everything. lol try looking up local events, groups, etc... pick something you are interested in or think you may be interested in and google it. see if there isnt a group of people nearby who share your interest. maybe start small. find a local chatroom or forum for that topic. get to know some people from the safety and anonimity of the internet. from there try to hook up with some event for that interest, maybe even go with some of the people you've been chatting with, that way you dont feel quite so socially alone or awkward.

    Hey, Your doctor should be able to refer you to a therapist. Don't suffer in silence, be honest and tell them how you feel. The south isn't much better:laugh: but there is much more help services and support groups for depression etc. :hug:
