    Housebound.

    These bad patches of health keep me confined to the house for months at a time, unless someone takes me out, and even then it just doesn't feel right. For years it was chronic fatigue. Now that has improved tremendously .........but I still get awful vertigo which makes...

    I Have Nothing To Look Forward Too

    I feel like life is absolutely pointless, I have absolutely nothing to look forward to, I have no good friends and I never end up hanging out with any of them.  The person I consider my best friend is very anti-social and doesn't like to hang out, and I just don't know what to...

    I Happened When I Wasn't Looking...

    It may be a function of age. A side effect of my social anxiety and depression. And losing my job 4 years ago didn't help. However, by the time I did lose the job, I had no coworkers I socialized. You wake up one day and you realize, YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS. The acquaintances I do...

    I Stay Home All the Time

    I don't get out of the house nearly as much as i'd like to. The trouble is that i don't like going out alone and i don't have many friends here to hang out with. It's tough for me to meet new people in person since i can be a bit shy at times. I like knowing people online first...

    Not That I Am Completely Socially Cut Off.

    I just don't have even half the social life I use to. Now my life is filled with case studies, housework, catching up with my partner and trying to relax. I do still see friends, just not nearly as much as a few years ago. - RDW

    Too Much Going On To Have A Social Life

    *sigh* Unfortunately, I am and have always been VERY social. I have been accused of being the "social butterfly" because I just love to meet and learn of new people, causes and ideas. I love to hear different dialects and languages and hear of other's differing and more exotic...

    Almost Forgot

    It's been so long that I've forgotten what it's like. The clubs, friends, fire pits at the beach, dinner parties, couples night out... boy it's been a long time. I'd even take a spa  day with my best friend. She once needed an escape so bad that she got a hotel room about 4...

    I've never been described

    as outgoing, but up until about three years ago, I always went and did things and had friends. I know much of it has to do with my depression, social anxiety, and my numerous other issues (god forbid) but up until lately I always managed my issues. Today, my social life consist...
