Were you bullied?

The thing is, that I searched for something to cure my depression but every time it failed so I just gave up the hope and the search and I dont see anything that could help.
I wake up every morning depressed and all I can do to get through is try to focus on the positives, it's not easy and it doesn't always work, I too have try to look for cures, all to no avail, I think the best that anyone can every do is to find ways of managing it.

Atleast you have some positives.
Well I let my depression just do it work I guess.
I lost the fight and the war against it.

I'm unemployed, single and have no friends, I'm very isolated right now, but absolutely anything that I can latch on to no matter how smalll or insignifcant it is I will. My life is all about little victories.

I hid away during my teenage years, all the way through my twenties due to anxiety, depression and low self esteem, and now in my mid 30's I'm having to play catch up. I was in a relationship but got dumped 3 months ago, but have started to try dating again, I've also got in contact with an organisation who support people back in to work, and I plan to keep pushing myself. I think I'll always have depression but I'm not going to let it have a strangle hold on my life.
I've also discovered this place, and it's full of kind people going through similar things that I'm going through, they always have friendly advice and words of support. Your not on your own, whether you want advice or just want to vent, you've got this place to come to.

Hi everyone. I was bullied it feels like all my life. I would say it started in middle school up until now at work. I was always shy and quiet a passive person, and being overweight doesn’t help. I tried fitting in being social but with my depression and anxiety and also being a introvert, it doesn’t work. I find adults act just as bad as kids and teenagers with people who are to themselves. At work I’am courteous and polite but rather not hang with other coworkers and I guess that find that not normal. So I get looks and giggles and talked behind my back. My therapist says how do you know there talking about you! I know. People in my office building that I don’t work with directly give me funny looks. I know I have a nervous twitch and I gets worse when I’am anxious. I hate small talk so I try and keep conversations as short as possible. Most people are just cruel I feel!!!

I know what its like to be passive, introverted and try to make friends and socialise with people, because of the many years I was bullied I often get paranoid or take negatives out of situation where no such thing exists. My problem is that I'm better at socialising 1 to 1, in groups situations I often get lost in the crowd. As for the people in your office have tried talking to any of them on their own to see what they're like away from the rest, you might find them to be pleasant company when not amongst the rest of their peers.

I’ve talked one on one and for the most part it’s ok. But when they get around a group there comes the comments and jokes. So the next time they say hey what’s up or want to talk then I see them in a different light.

Yes I was bullied in high school. Sometimes (bizarrely) by boys who fancied me. Mostly because I was quiet and shy though. And I think some were jealous because I was clever and had good looks I guess. It really still affects me to this day, I struggle to keep friends and trust people. I worry it could happen all over again when meeting new people. I avoid people because of it.

Trust is always a big hurdle to overcome when meeting new people, it's like taking a big leap of faith, I recently got messed around by someone I thought liked me, but they couldn't care less about me, I just console myself with the fact that there are decent people out there, I just haven't met them yet, there's billions of people in the world, there's bound to be some nice people out there.

Are the comments and jokes directed at you specially or is it a case that they're having a laugh and a joke and would like you to join in with them, a bit like when close friends tease each other or indulge in a bit of friendly banter.
