    This definitely sounds like anxiety/depression to me also Co dependancy, I know because I have this also.then what happens you start over thinking things and convince yourself that there actually true. Talk to your docs again if your medication isn't working.

    Take care xx

    Hi ,

    I can so relate to this...Around 18 months ago i had an episode of depression my doctor said i was highly stressed and prescribe me some statraline. I did start to feel better after a while so i stopped taking them. In the last few months i seemed to have developed a constant anxious feeling and i always feel worried and paranoid about thigs. I automaticaly feel people dont like me and they think i am weird. Even my closest friends i believe do not like me anymore and can see me as a bad person. My confidence is really at rock bottom at the moment and i do feel i dont belong anywhere or fit in, i used to be so bubble and care free.I only feel comfortable when i am at home. I am going to the doctors again to discuss this, i was hoping this would be another short term episode but this appears to be going on too long..I have only just come across this website but it is comforting to know i am not on my own.  

    Thanks for listening
