    I wish that I could tell those around me how I really feel, that each day at the moment is a struggle, I have panic attacks and can't sleep and find it so hard going outside my front door.
    I cry my self to sleep and sometimes have night terrors...
    I told my best friend the other day, how scared I felt when I was having a night terror and she laughed as she's never had one.
    I try to tell my friends that i love their company but I can't always get out and can't deal with the noise from bars and clubs but they don't understand and ask me after a while why it seems to them, am I being a team player... so now I've given up... I'm too tired to argue, I just want quietness and some sleep.

    It's hard, when you reach out and try to get help, you find out the people you thought were your friends don't really care that much about you. I had this happen to me a couple months ago or so. I cried out for help, and all of the people that I thought were my friends either made fun of me or said that they didn't care/couldn't help me at all. The only person I found was supportive was a friend I made on the internet, he didn't know me in person, and didn't know a whole lot about my situation, but that didn't stop him from being a true friend.

    My advice is try making a few new friends maybe, ones that you can relate to a bit more. It's hard to try to go through struggles alone, and having someone that knows a bit of how you feel can really help.

    If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me. :)
    Hope you get some good rest and start to feel better. :hug:
