    Do you not have any family?......You would be supprised, people do care, It amazing when you so low, you think that way..... I was like that all the time, thinking I am getting on peoples nerves, so I would isolate myself, it was easier.... okay you may loose a few friends on the way, but the ones that stay are true friends, I live alone, as I lost my husband 3 years ago, and I only started to greive 9 months ago... I don't have many friends, as I was looking after my husband for many years those friends weren't real, as now I am on my own, you don't see them, but hey, they aren't friends...... You will hsve plenty of people on here, that will talk to you.....Hilary  smile

    I came on here tonight, because I knew i would feel lonely. I have no one who really understands what I am going through right now. But I am sure some of you do. I think you made the right decision to talk here.

    I feel the same way. It's just me, 61, my husband 68, and little dog, who's16 years old.

    We have no immediate family nearby. I have depression, anxiety and panic attacks. I'm struggling with the process of getting used to new medication, Venlafaxine, XL, after years on Paroxetine.

    which stopped working.

    My husband has an inherited condition called Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiactesia, or HHT as it's known as.

    He has nosebleeds nearly every day which do stop on their own, but has had to be taken to hospital by ambulance at least once a year.

    He understands and does his best to be there for me emotionally. Sometimes, though, it's not enough and I feel bad about that. I can't help it.

    All this, as you can appreciate does not help my mental health at all. There are helplines, but sometimes I find it very hard to phone them when I'm struggling. All I need is a cuppa and a chat with somebody.

    I'm sure a lot of us feel the same way.

    It's very hard, even if you do have family or people there. If they can't or don't understand what you're going through that's just as bad.

    More needs to be done to help people like us make connections with each other and other people so we don't feel so isolated. Isolation is a cruel state and far to many people are stuck in it, whatever condition they have.

    Sorry for the ramble on folks. It just all came out like that. x

      Hi Chriselora,

      By you writting all this down, is like talking to someone, it's gets it off your ches, I type down alot the way I feel, it is good therepy, also it can make you cry, which releases a lot of anxiety, it like sycotherepy, which is good.... your right there should be more help out there.... i have been many months feeling really bad, in the end I either got the help privately, or hung on in there myself, had a couple of good days lately, I hope they stay, don't know in my case whether it's due to cutting down, but not shaking today thank God, and I think he does help us, sometimes you have got to get so bad, that you do appreciate the good..... Hilary   smile

    Dodons, I'm going through the same and what I'm doing is being very humble and clearly saying to people I trust, even when I don't know them well, but something in them make me feel they are good people. I tell them I'm in need of someone to talk to and if they're receptive I talk in a way that I don't go straight saying everything at once. I start with informal subjects and go from there. I went to this couples' house near mine I've always thought might be good people, knocked on their door and just said that I was not there to sell anything or ask for favors, I just wanted to talk to another human being. They received me with open arms and we're starting to build a friendship. In moments like this you have to be humble and as human as you can be. There are good people out there, believe me.

    What you do is type it down and we will answer ! Here for you Dondon! The fact you are asking for help or someone to talk too is good, I bottle stuff up and dont speak of anything which boils over (thats not what to do) take care wink

    Sometimes you just have to wait. Save it all up for the therapist. Get more therapy sessions. A lot or people are so busy doing nothing and have nothing to talk about. Find out what people near you are interested in so you can build a friendship. Or become a listener. Do you want to talk or be talked to or hold a conversation?
