    I just broke up with my boyfriend the other day

    and I have no one to talk to about it! I know I needed to do it but it didn't hit me how lonely I was until yesterday when I was driving home from work and couldn't call him like I usually do so we can talk about our day. I have a couple friends but we hardly even talk anymore...

    I've never feel this lonely my entire life.

    This is the time when I can use some hugs, kind words & encouragements from my friends, but they are all too busy with their own life.

    I just feel alone. I feel sad

    when I'm by myself. Is this because I do not enjoy my own company? I try to find out what's wrong but I never can. I just feel such terrible emotions most of the time without knowing why. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder so I'm pretty sure it's probably that...

    I'm sad, I'm lonely,

    and I'm generally depressed. Won't anyone talk to me? I hate having to ask, but it's better than sitting here spiraling deeper and deeper into my misery. Reasons: Still not over my breakup. No one to talk to.
