    It's the most ridiculous thing. I have cousins who I havwnt spoken to in years who have reached out because my facebook posts have included articles about suicide and depression. That should tell me I'm not alone, right?

    But I feel more alone than ever. The friends I used to talk to everyday when this relapse started, I don't hear from them anymore, really. My little sister, bless her heart, has been checking in but a lot let so and I can see she wants to live her life without being brought down by me and my shit. She deserves to. My other siblings, they have their own lives.

    I usually spend the day at my sister's where I hang out with her toddler and cook sometimes but I can't do that today. So, I'm at home, all alone with almost nothing to distract me from these thoughts.

    It's not ok to be like this. Who I've turned out to be isn't so good. I'm a mess. I'm not ok.

    Sorry you are going through this.
    Maybe its a good thing that happend with your friends. Real friends would have stayed with you. So keep moving forward. Maybe talk to your sister? Tell her how you feel?

    But, I mean,I actually am alone. No boyfriend or husband or kids. Friends and family have their own lives as they should. I know the answer to this would be to get my own life but it's just not so easy for me. And, even when I did have a life, I still felt alone.

    I realize this all sounds really selfish and self centered and I'm sorry that's who I've turned out to be. But I just don't want to feel alone anymore. It's a feeling - I'm sure you guys know what I mean by that..

    It's not self-centered or selfish at all. Depression is an actual illness and it's very, very real and persistent. I'm sorry you are going through this. I know it doesn't help, but there are others that suffer too, although when you're extremely depressed that doesn't matter and you still feel alone. That's the ugly nature of the illness, unfortunately. It causes you to have to be by yourself all of the time, even when you don't want to. It's like being alone in a crowded room and that horrible feeling ever quite goes away. Here, at least you have people to discuss your battles with!
