Just wondering

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi. I don't know what's wrong with me. I have always felt kind of distant, but recently the feelings have only become more intense. I just feel empty. Like I still laugh while watching youtube and stuff but like I don't feel anything on a regular basis. I took the depression test on this website and it said I was suffering from "Severe" depression but I don't know if that's true.

I have always felt kind of alone: I have trust issues and I get paranoid about stupid things, and I have always felt like I have no real friends. I don't think I do.

I don't like live in poverty or anything and although I've been bullied it hasn't been that bad really. I don't know why I would be depressed.

If anybody has any idea what's wrong with me I would appreciate feedback.

    Hi Dylan, we are all not experts on here, it sounds like you need a diagnosis maybe but a doctor would help you more. Good luck.

    yeah i get like that from time to time. I think its natural, have a look on the NHS site and speak with your Dr though if its becoming to much. Have a look at volunteering, i'm trying to find something at the minute.

    Not everybody is social. Some of us are lone wolf persons by nature. I read somewhere that if you can make one good friend in a lifetime that you are doing good. Often time friends like everything else move on or change. Adaption is the rule of existence. I just helped myself by saying this. At age 74 it seems that all prior friend have moved, passed on or found others to share words and ideas with. So is life. I had to stop driving and it is hard, I don't watch TV. Neighbors have there own needs and I don't fit in. They even took away the park bench that I sat on with my dogs. What has our culture become? Where are we headed when people become slaves of the wealthier and those in power who lack empathy.

    Hi Dylan - it sounds like disassociation. Sort of numb. Tired of others. No real sunshine in life so numbing oneself to it. Have you consulted a doc at all?
