I Am Alone Iin a Room Full of People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 170 People

    I Feel Like That Almost All The Time.

    I have never, not even once, in my life felt like I was "included." I can get along fairly well with people when it's one-on-one, I can be engaging in conversation with someone, I can be a pretty charming date. When it's just one other person, I can bring my walls down. But...

    Wow.. Where Did You Get The Name For This Rooom?

    A couple of years ago, I had posted this line from a poem I wrote back in high school, and I think I had posted it under a different user name. I was sitting in the auditorium in High School and wrote down precisely how I felt. My poem started with I am alone in a room full of...

    Nothing

    No feeling, No love, No One, Just a shell of nothing........I have people around me but yet they seem so far from me. Nothing seems to ease this pain. Nothing I do makes a difference. Nothing, just the four walls staring back at me. NOTHING is what describe me..... All alone and...

    Life Changing Moments

    I remember being 15 when my whole world turned upside down. I was a very angry and confused child. Hating the fact that I was in foster care but yet knowing that being there meant I didn't have to suffer daily abuse at my mothers will. It was Oct 86, I had run away from the...

    Why Do I Do It to Myself?

    I think I have reached the decision to just not go to parties or out with groups of people anymore. Whenever I do I constantly think "why did I say I would come, I could have been having a nice evening alone doing my own thing". Part of me tries to be outgoing and...

    Crowded..

    I joined this group not because Im saddened in a group, or that I feel depressed or anxious when Im surrounded by people. Its more of a feeling of not being able to connect, or not wanting to. When I meet someone I either feel instantly connected, or they become a gurgled noise...

    Some days I get so frustrated.... I'm trapped inside my head, having these irrational thoughts, maybe black thoughts, maybe a little pschotic thoughts and I feel like i'm about to explode with frustration. I walk into a room full of people and i scream at the top of my voice...

    The Monster With-in

    I feel as though im in a fog. Floating above the scene as it unfolds. I see me as a scared little girl hiding from the monster. The monster I call mother. She is drunk and mad. Wanting a whipping horse. I'm shaking watching all this unfold. Wanting to reach out and save myself. I...

    Now And Then

    I can feel so unique and different from family and others that I will single myself out by being silent or reclusive. I know my self-esteem is low and it is going to take a long time for it to become high enough again to fully put myself out. I feel I am making progress through...
