    I'm 21 and I spend pretty much all of my time in my room. I've had depression for years and it feels like it's to hard to go on any more. How do you cope?

    I practically live in my room. :unsure:

    I've gotten used to being alone, although still feel lonely at times.
    The internet helps :) Don't know what Id do without it..

    Are you on any meds for your depression? :hug:

    Fortunately I have a condo to hide away in, but I still isolate. Most of my time since February has been here in my condo nest. I also use the internet as a connection. (my therapist hates this) Do you at least have another room to sit in?

    I don't really deal with it at all. My isolation is my own doing - it's the only way I feel safe. I just keep myself very busy at home (get lots of hobbies, read a lot, watch a lot of movies).
    I've made a few friends online though and I suppose one thing the internet does do is give you a way out of your seclusion if you want it, you can go out and meet people offline? Although that's not very easy when you suffer from anxiety issues.

    i think taking the chance to be around 3d people should be considered an adventure of the utmost neatness...look at it as the goonies..finding that old pirate ship in the bowels of that rigged cave.Someday we will make it to the treasure.:blink:

    If it weren't for the internet I'd still be completely isolated. I met someone online who I meet up with every couple of months and that's all really.
    Guess it's good I enjoy my own company. But hey, if you want to make an online friend I'm just a PM away. :smile:

    I can't cope, but jacking off and music help for a short time.

    You don't volunteer.
    You get dragged away from your bed in the midst of night by the casting directors (AKA, the Life Nazi's).
