I Just Need Someone To Talk To...

none of my friends talk to me anymore. they all left because i've shut myself out. theyve given up on me because they dont know what else to do. i ant talk to my parents because i dont want to be a burden and upset them. im alone and i need a friend who wont judge or leave me because i NEED to get better. i need to.

i'm always here if you'd like to talk, i have depression too and understand a bit of how you're feeling

I understand a bit how you feel. Depression is fabulous at getting a person to isolate themselves from others. I've been fabulous at this as well. It sucks, but what I've learned over the years is that my "true" friends love me, and will always love me, regardless of the lack of time I communicate w/ them, etc. <br />
<br />
But, at the same time, there's a great balance in sharing a mutual friendship involving open communication about what's going on in each others lives, versus simply overwhelming someone w/ how horrible you are feeling. I've found that my friends who have never experienced depression have a hard time understanding or offering support. <br />
<br />
This is where there's great value in finding support groups w/ people who have experienced what it is we are going through.

Im looking for someone as well. Drop me a line if you want, I also have depression.

I'm here to listen. Go ahead and talk.
