    I just want someone to share my thoughts and feelings with. I need to be physically and emotionally close to people. I'm seeking of living on this Island. I've heard all the "go out and meet people" solutions, or "go join a club" but I don't know where to start.

    I've started to think that it's not worth going on like this.

    Hello Desolate,

    Welcome to the forums!
    I'm glad you found us :)

    How long have you been feeling this way? Have you ever sought professional help?

    Well, I don't know what the problem is. I see myself as easy going, intelligent and funny. However, I think others seeing me as the opposite. I'm in my late twenties and I moved four years ago to a new city for work and it's been downhill since then. For a couple years I fell back on the belief that it was normal for people who move to find it hard to meet new people, but now I just see it as a problem with me. I hate going through life wishing things turned out differently for me.

    No. I'm dead afraid of being put on medications.

    Why is that hun?

    As an alternative you could try therapy?

    Yeah therapy sounds better. Re: the meds - I've heard all types of things about how addictive they are and the dependence you build on them.

    Is depression a product of your environment, or is it the other way around?

    If you want to make changes then sometimes you have to risk putting yourself out there to meet new people, what sort of work do you do & is there a "social" club for staff or if not what interests do you have that others may share? .
    & as for your fears on medications ( I am now on a lifetime medication regime not addictive but just necessary) they can work but it might take a while to find what works for you. but if it helps you to just keep talking here then we are all ready to listen .

    I know how you feel. Doubt that there's one person on this forum who doesn't know how you feel.
    Do you work, go to school? Or how about volunteering? Those are some ways of meeting people. It can be very hard. I do not have a lot of friends as well. I'm glad to have friends here but I know it is important to have that physical and emotional closeness.
    We're here for you in the meantime :hugtackles:
