Lonely

Posted , 4 users are following.

I don't like how I can be sat in a room full of people and feel lonely. I went for a meal with my boyfriend his family and friends and although my boyfriend was there I just felt empty and alone. It's a horrible feeling. Does it ever get better?

    Hi Chloe,

    Yes it does get better! I've been in that stage of anxiety/depression. It can be scary when it starts, how long has it been going one/how old are you?

      Hi Julia,

      I've suffered on and off with anxiety and depression since I was 13, although undiagnosed until I was 20. I overcame it though and now I'm 24. I can feel it creeping back in. I just couldn't shake the feeling of feeling lonely. Everyone was talking and laughing and I felt outside looking in. Empty and alone. It's the first time I've noticed it on a big scale.

      I've been experiencing this recently as well! It started 4 weeks ago but I can say that I have finally started to enjoy the things I used to. Don't let the feeling stop you from trying to go out with friends and family even if it seems like work. It gets better, luckily mine has only been 4 weeks so far and it's already started to get better. I'm planning on seeing a psychiatrist next week, have you thought about that? The lonely feelings sometimes creep up so I want to see what I can do about that.
