    I can relate to you with this. I do things with friends, but can't wait to be home and be alone.

    I used to have a lot of "friends." I don't put that in quotes to be bitter but just I don't think the friends I had were really friends. I never really let them in, though I probably convinced myself I did.

    Anyway, I always couldn't wait to get home and be alone. And when I was alone, I couldn't wait to get out and be with people again. Tortorous cycle. Either way, having lots of friends, or having no friends, makes no difference. You can still be happy or unhappy either way.

    There's been threads about location, having money. Ultimately. Feeling suicidal is not dependent on where you are, how much you have, how many friends you have, etc. It is not dependent on anything external.

    Anyway, yea I know how you feel :hug:

    Everyday I feel like that. I ignore the emails,phone calls/messages and even not answer the door when they come by....I'm a recluse....in hiding yet prefer it.

    wow I feel the same way, I want to think that my friends and I are just a poor fit but it could just be my inability to open up :hiding:
