Unhappy help! - January 17th 2010, 04:49 AM

so its been a really tough week for me... im not quite sure why. Maybe because i'm back at school and i just feel like a freakin outsider. I've realized that my friends are not my friends and i just feel outta the loop whenever we hang out. I think to some extent im just having a 1-man pity party. but im tired of always feeling alone. . . ive been here before about a year ago and took some friends medicine and got better for a while but then the medicine stopped working. I can't go to a shrink bc i cant afford one. but i feel like a lot of my loneliness is rooted in my deep trust and confidence problems. pretty much writing on here is the most ive ever talked about how i feel to anyone, even close friends/boyfriends. i just cant bring myself to trust anyone any more at least enough to truly open up to them because im afraid taht they will A)think im crazy b) do something to destroy that trust and hurt me.

any ideas on how to deal with this because at this point im about ready to give up because this is no way to live

I know its hard to trust people and to reach out but I think you should try again. Is there anyone you might feel comfortable enough with to tell them how your feeling? Because talking to someone about how your feeling would help alot. It would make you feel less alone and as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.If you think your friends are not being as friendly and supportive as they could be, maybe it's time to try and meet some new people. That might help aswell.

Stay positive and take care.

Well hello there =)
First of all, I'm sorry your feeling so lonley. Feeling like an outsider is a scary and uncomfortable feelings. When you say your in school, is that high school or college? I know that colleges offer free and confidential counsling serivces. Normally, they work with a psychiatrist as well if medication is ever seen as necessary. High schools generally have school psycologists. They are basically like therapists, just with a higher education. Either way, they are free. They can help you through your trust issues. Usually trust issues are deeply rooted in old and long kept hurt. Its important to get this hurt out, it is one of the only ways you can begin trusting again. I'm a firm believer in the saying "those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind." If you have true friends, they will understand your feelings. If they arent, then they are not the kind of friends you need to have. It may be hard making new friends, but having friends who truely care is an amazing feeling. Look into therapy. It has helped me so much, I swear by it!
If you ever need anything, PM me anytime and I'll be sure to answer it. I'd love to help. =)
Take care.

Re: help! - January 18th 2010, 04:11 PM

just wanted to encourage you to reach out for help to people in your life because it sounds like you may have a mental illness such as Depression. Many Mental illnesses like depression are treatable with medication (many companies will help you cover the cost if you cant afford it, and the generics are cheap), therapy (there are many places where young people can get therapy for a low cost), and lifestyle changes such as eating balanced meals and getting enough sleep. It is however very very hard to go it alone. Your life is valuable, and with treatment things CAN get better.

Ask yourself "If I was happy, how would life be different than it is now?" It may be hard to imagine if you've been in emotional pain for a long time, but try to write as much as you can about what your life would be like. Then try to pick out the things in your "happy" life that you actually have control over and can work towards. Something like winning the lottery isn't realistic, but there are probably going to be several things that you do have control over. Make them specific and realistic goals.

the only thing you can count on is change, so why don't you stick around? This too shall pass. Things get better, things get worse, but it won't be this way for ever. Don't be afraid to ask for help. your life is valuable.

You're NOT alone.

and all the sciencewe have to offer has failed them,
when worst-case scenario comes true,
clinging to hope is all we've got left.
