    I've tried all of the things I said I would try and nothing...

    I've got myself a job (even though it is voluntary, it's getting me out of the house and giving me purpose).

    I've taken up a hobby.

    I try to make sure I wake up in the mornings instead of sleeping all day.

    I have cut out the people from my life who made me feel like shit.

    I have tried to make a handful of new friends.

    I am trying to do 'normal' things like socialising, going out for dinner, drinks etc.

    I am taking my meds.


    What else can I do? What else do I do?

    It will probably take time Patsy. Alot of the changes are recent. Your mindframe needs to change, kinda like the diet thing, its a life style change...ya know?

    Im so proud of you for trying :)

    You are so strong Linds, I dont think you even know your own strenght.

    Im sorry, ive been needing your attention lately, but I am here for you wholeheartedly!!!!

    I think you are amazing!!! Truely!

    *Sadly, my wall of text was lost due to a faulty internet connection - but you should know, I wrote for a solid 10 minutes! But now you only get the summary*

    That summary being - try something different. You chose a hobby - maybe it was the wrong one. You got new friends - maybe you still need better friends. You got a job - perhaps you need a career change!

    In short, maybe the changes you've made, while a solid step in the right direction, just hasn't gotten you to the downhill side of the hill just yet - keep trying different activities and social events; even try doing your OWN events instead of just tagging along with others (Sleepovers/Rock Band/Karaoke Parties are for the win!).

    Also, keep in mind that just because something is "normal," doesn't make it the best thing to for you to be doing. But, just make sure if you do go with something more unique, its isn't so unique that it creates a seperation between you and others. Uniqueness can be both a saving grace and a undesired curse; the more you know.

    You have made great stride in changing yourself for the better..Give them time to become routine with you.. Reputition is key to making them succesful..I'm glad to hear you are getting out and not isolating.. Trust me on that one.. It really sucks..Keep socializing..Make more friends.. Some of them are bound to become Good Friends..People you can trust not to hurt you..Just keep trying thats all anyone can ask of you.. Take Care!!
