    that my mil, in a memory care unit of a nursing home for her Alzheimer's, had a stroke. The **** keeps piling on and I'm already carrying an oversized load. I feel like I'm going to break, but also just numb. I'm grateful I have EP to vent on, but I think I might be taking a...

    With a long distance boyfriend

    and a shattered friend group. I feel so alone. I wouldn't mind having other strong women to connect with and message from time to time when needed. :)

    I feel like theres no one there

    for me. I'm hating myself a lot lately. I almost killed myself the other day. I look back on it and am glad I didnt. I've wanted to a million times but have never gotten that close. It's scary.

    Gone

    Listening to sad songs while in the shower, to cry all at once, getting rid of all the pain for a day. It happens every day, for you cannot see my ugly face when I'm alone in the shower, or my sorrow filled tears as they run down my face...

    Im insanly agoraphobic (scared of people;

    social anxiety) and slow to warm up to new people in person. So consequently i only have 3 good girlfriends who i can really talk to about stuff. But theyre always busy so i spend a lot of time alone with my cat. Gets a bit lonely but Mittens is a good listener :)

    I feel so forgotten..

    I used to come to Ep knowing I would have a friend to hear me out. But now everyone seems to have forgotten me. I feel terribly alone and unwanted. "Don't worry, I'll always be here" ... They said.

    It is hard to live alone.

    Especially when you are married. But, many military families live this way. They have no choice.

    I've been feeling very alone lately,

    I hope that putting my feelings out there will help in some way. I don't really have anyone to share my feelings with, I don't want people I know to know just how alone I feel. After the death of my son, it's almost at the 5 year mark, I shut myself off emotionally and pushed...

    I need to know I'm not the only one who feels this way. More than often I enjoy my own company more than the company of others. I'm called antisocial, but I know this isn't the case because I like people and I like socializing. I just like being in my own head so much more...

    Those moments when you have no one to talk too,

    so you go looking through everything to find at least one friendly chatter. Wish he wasn't always so busy... It sucks especially at night. Night is when you need that person the most. Night is where loneliness really rears its ugly head.

    I thought EP would help with my depression.

    ..you know, kind of anonymously talking to others who are going through the same thing. All it turned out to be is an app with 50 year old horny men and teenagers who's stories make me want to cry.

    because of work. I finally have a day off with her and she goes and hangs out with her friends and leaves me to do all the errands while she has fun. I'm pissed off and depressed. I just want to see her today. but that's not going to happen.

    as if I'm in an alternate reality. Everyone else's life is moving on. These people have friends. They have a social life. They do things together. Where did I go wrong that I am not just an outsider looking in?
