I just want to be alone.....forever - March 16th 2010, 07:46 PM

I dunno...the past 3 years i complained about being alone, and when i finally accept it the people who are still around (all 3 of them) are close...yet i just want to be left alone, i dont want anyone apart from 1 mate in my life.

Ive been told i have depression by alot of people, i have no idea because i dont want to be one of those people who walk around and say "i have depression....attention please" i just want the world to leave me alone, i just want to work, come home, see my mate every now and again, work on my small buisness, go to bed, go to work and repeat.

It doesnt bother me anymore, and yet it used to bring me to tears and make me upset and angry, now i just dont care....whats wrong with me?

You've just become used to the idea of having a life with very few people in it. Which can be difficult to get out of. Is there a reason why you want only one friend?
The other people should respect the fact you want to be alone, but it is hard to except and they may wonder why.
As for the depression, maybe you are depressed, there's no shame in it and the people who care about you shouldn't change how they feel, many people go through it, but maybe you're just happy having one friend

I'm in a similar position now, but i'm one of the three that is still around & close.

Try figuring out the reason why you only want the one friend and talk to the others about how you feel

hope this helped abit.

PM me anytime if you want to talk <3

Hey Robin,

I know how you are feeling. It is the depression that is controlling you and controlling how you feel. It is the depression that is telling you that you don't need anyone and you want to be alone, it wants to isolate you so it can eat you up from the inside by itself.

I would advise that you talk to someone about this, make an appointment with a doctor if you can. They will know the best way to help you get through this. You don't have to do it alone, no matter what your mind tells you. Equally, not everyone has to know about it. It will be confidential as you are 18 therefore only the people you tell can find out.

You deserve to get help and support to beat this Robin, you don't deserve to feel like this. But to make a difference, you are going to have to reach out. The fact you posted on here shows that you do want help and it shows you have the strength to get it. Don't let this depression beat you.

Also, have you tried blogging? You could set up a blog (somewhere like BlogSpot) and just vent or rant emotions into it, get them off your chest. No one neccessarily has to read it but it could be a good release for you. Worth a try?

I'm here anytime if you need me.
Take care.
