I'm new to this forum, and a bit nervous but was wanting some help. Im 22 now and depressed, I was on citalopram up to last year ( I came off them in october). However things havent been going so well, I got made redundant last sunday as my work closed down and have now no friends at all. Whenever I had my depression for a few years, I cut myself off from everyone and drifted away from my friends, I havent really made any new ones, I get nervous talking to people and also (if this makes sense) I get scared of getting close to people because I dont want to get hurt or lose people. I feel like im on a very slippery slope at the minute, I just keep sinking lower and lower and to be honest, im really lonely...and now unemployed :-( do any of you guys have any tips on how to cope with this? Or even just how to simply make any friends?
