    Age 25, Twice Divorced

    I've never really been alone before. As a child I was an outcast - like many - but I had a few friends that came and went, and always had family. I thought I was alone, I thought that's what I was feeling, but it wasn't so. After High School I joined the military, which of course...

    I came home this summer to get away from my own

    home. To actually try and function with my parents. The first 14 days went okay. After that I was miserable. Depressed. Anxious. Paranoid. Scared. Last week felt like a year. I couldn't wait to get away and move back to my own house. I've been in my empty house for two days...

    False Hope

    I am turning 16 in a month, and I've been struggling with depression for a long time. I am an athlete, involved in art, and in advanced classes (doing pretty well, but still feel stupid compared to everyone else). I don't have family issues, but we're kinda tight on money, and I...

    My Loneliness Will Be The Death Of Me.

    I'm 22 years old. I've never had a girl interested in me and I've never had many friends. I was never even remotely popular in school. I'm severely depressed, was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, and have been on medication for most of my life. I met my best friend in high...

    Thinking you've made a connection with someone

    and become close friends, then to all of a sudden have them completely ignore you without reason is a horrible thing. When you're already insecure it makes you over analyse absolutely everything you do and causes a severe lack of confidence. That happened to me lately and I...

    This doesn't apply to me much anymore. It's hard to be lonely with so many people to chat with on here now. =p But yes... 99% of my depression in the past was due to isolation and loneliness. It was due to my social anxiety, or the end result of it. I didn't have any friends...

    How do you go on living,

    what's there to live for? How do you find meaning and purpose in your life, have something or someone to live for when nobody cares and appreciates you? No one takes the time to tell you how much you mean to them. No one takes the time to be there to listen and support you...

    It seems like a stupid reason to be depressed

    considering that there are 7 billion people on Earth, but I can't interact with them properly. They don't seem to like me. I try to like them... but they are less and less human as the years go on. I'm a Creep. I'm a Weirdo. I don't belong here. I need help... I need love
