  1. I've suffered from social anxiety most of my life. Though I have a job, I absolutely hate it and everyone treats me as a joke there. All my life I feel no one has ever really gotten to know me because I'm so anxious around people. I've been going to a variety of therapists (including ones that specialize in social anxiety), and have been on Lexapro since June, but nothing seems to be helping. I feel like life is passing me by. I can't get a girlfriend because no one really wants to get to know me. The last one I had was 6 months ago, but she just used me as a rebound. Unfortunately, that was the first girl I really fell for. Even now I still think about her even though she moved on to someone else long ago. I don't know what else I can try to help things get better. Sometimes they get better for a little while but I always end right back up into this hole. I tried church last night but felt completely out of place. Suicide is a constant thought. Help?

    hey, if you think your alone in your thoughts, this place can prove you wrong. if it gets too much to bear, i can suggest a couple things that really tow me back down to a clear mind, just give me a shout, but i'm sure everyone else here will have better advice to give you
  3. I appreciate it, really I do, but I just need a purpose to keep going. I keep thinking that if I can find some reason to keep going, maybe the other problems in my life won't seem quite as important. My family wants to help, but I fear they're about to send me to a mental hospital. I damn near put myself in one last night.

    well, if it helps, i made myself a goal that did me pretty good after my 1st attempts, although i guess i have to rekindle it a bit. its almost unattainable for me, but i know when i hit it, if i ever do, which i will, i'll have done something worthwhile and memerable. helps me, but it might not for you, i'm not so sure. mise-well give it a shot though. :biggrin:
