Social isolation

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi,

well i've been suffering from existencial thoughts for quite a while now. I've not left my house since quite a while. I just feel better if I don't but at the same time i feel miserable about it. I know i should go out but if i do i completely freak out and feel derealized. The thing is that i feel like im losing touch with life. I cant do a lot of things cause nothing makes really sense to me. I feel like my life is just a chapter. I live just to get over the day. But is that possible? I'm afraid of never having the desire of friends and doing normal things again. Is it possible that my brain forgets how to live and doesnt get desires again? I feel like what humans do doesn't make sense to me anymore. I'ld be happy about somebody responding

    Have you seen a psychologist or psychiatrist for an evaluation? are you on medication for your condition? If not you need to get an evaluation I think that you suffering from depression, etc. Only a specialist can make the correct diagnose.

      Hi smile

      I think therapy is the best... medication alone cant be the only thing. I didn't really try medication becausi i hope for a good therapy. It's just not easy to find somebody who understands..
