    I Am Physically Alone.

    I have lots of great people here on EP.  So, I am not alone as far as not having anyone to talk to, but I am alone in the physical sense.  I have spoken about two sentences aloud today.  No one has touched me in days.

    I am extremely tired of being alone. Loneliness truly sucks. Being alone with my own thoughts too much has definitely started to eat away at me.
