Trapped

I feel that i'm trapped because of my depression and social anxiety. I find it really difficult to talk to people and make friends so i mostly stay in my room, which is hell because it gets really lonely.

Hi I just wanted to offer you some encouragment there is a way out although it may not seem like it. There are alternatives like talking to someone you trust a good friend, parent, and or medicines that can help with that. I'm not just saying this I walked the walk<br />

I to, also understand about anxiety/depression and being cooped up indoors, i just went through the " ENTIRE WINTER" in that situation, it comes and goes with me tho, i'm dealing with alot in my life i guess, having the computer does help i have music and games to amuse myself, and a few caring friends and family. At the moment i don't have a job, a caring man is taking care of me. None-the-less even if i can count who really does care on my hands I am greateful. The VERY MOST important thing is "Your ALIVE" and breathing,, and you can always find a true friend out there whether it be, outside your front door, down the road, or internet road, just takes some looking to discover them waiting there for you. If you want someone to talk to i'm here i have nothing better to do and wouldn't mind a new friend.<br />

I know that one, I have just had to take a week off work because of severe depression. i have to go back next week but i just want to hide away. I have always been socially inadequate, unles I'.m drunk and then I can get maudlin. Also since my dad told me when i was young that I was untidy and not very attractive, together with growing upw ith a stunning younger sister , does nothing for self esteem. on a good day I can bslieve that I have a beautiful soul as do most people. We cant all be social butterflies, but have things to offer none the less.
