I Have Become A Recluse And Am Having Trouble Connecting With People.Hello, I'm a 26 year old college student. I've always been a little bit of a loner but 4 years ago I had a few friends and a job. Life was pretty good.
Today I'm unemployed, and have an apartment on my parents property to live in. My day consists of going to school then coming right home. I no longer
have any friends other than my brother and his wife and I've picked up a little bit of drinking habit. I spend an unhealthy amount of time on the internet and
do little else. My last friend joined the marines years ago and the last I heard he's living in California.
I've tried plenty of different anti-depressant/anxiety medications thinking that was the reason I was shutting people out but I quit taking them and realize
i feel just as good (or better) without them. I go through periods of extreme fatigue, and I'm often too tired to interact with anyone in my classes (the days
I'm even able to show up for class).
This sucks, and I really want to have a life again.
