Hello, I really need someone to be my friend. I am feeling so lonely and i dont have any friends at all. I am all alone all the time and my social phobia is to blame for this. I have been unsocial most of my life, even as a kid, but it just got worse with time. I am 23 now and have no friends at all. When i say this i really mean it. It doesnt mean i just dont have close friends, it means none at all. Thats one of the reasons i have been depressed many times in my life. It has been on and off and in stages. I never go partying, i never go to pubs and clubs, no one calls me. I am unable to get closer to any of my classmates, i think thats becoz i am so unsocial and they can feel that, no matter how hard i try to hide that. Its so unbelievable hard for me to talk to people, i am extremely shy and it takes all of my courage to talk to new people. It just makes me desperate and i dont know what i should do and say, i am just completely lost. So i am always trying to avoid meeting new people. I am just sick and tired of my situation. I so wish i can find some people on this site who are in a similar situation. Please if u want to talk, PM me. I am so desperately want to meet someone who i can share my thoughts with! If u have some advice i would appreciate that too. Just dont tell me i gotta go and talk to people even if it makes me feel so bad. I have tried that lots and lots of times and my anxiety never gets any better.
