Unhappy Friends. - April 27th 2010, 07:48 PM

So yeah, yet another thread in a sea of self pity.

Basically I have no friends who give a fuck. I don't hang out with anyone in real life aside from these guys i just fucking sit with in between courses so that I don't look like a fucking loner. My best friends were all online, but they constantly make me feel like shit, when I told them I was sick of it, they were like "k?". So fucking lonely, I'm on anti depressants and I still get massive downers cus I feel like no one would even care if I blew my head off. It's basically impossible to make friends in 12th grade, every "group" is already built and no one really is open to new people. As for online, I don't know, I have a hard time finding people who have similar interests, so it gets old rather quick. I just wish I had friends who would treat me like a person, and at the same time be interested in what I have to say, I have severe social anxiety and don't know what people generally converse about so people most likely find me bloody boring.

Sitting alone at home playing video games by myself, watching tv, and hell, even sleeping all day, is getting really boring, I'm slowly sinking into a really bad state of mind, I am considering suicide again, my grades are slipping, I have nightmares any time I try to sleep. Just don't want to feel so lonely anymore.


Self pity will not rescue you.
Sometimes we have to save our own lives,
not because no one else cares, but because no one else can.

Life for you has been less than kind
So take a number, stand in line
We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
But how we survive is what makes us who we are.

Dreamed up the maps, give me the charcoal and the paper
We invent paths they cannot see, and they're too scared to walk


Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It's only after you've lost everything that you are free to do anything.

I'm kind of going through the same thing with my friends. Grades and such. Pm anytime. I know it may seem like they wouldn't care if you blew your heads off, but that it probably more wrong than you think. I know that hurts people beyond words. It's not a good option.

I know the feeling of being lonely, and it sucks. My social life is basically online.

I live in a small town so I don't have this option, but have you considered going to a youth centre, or joining some sort of activity, such as band, sports, etc.? I don't know what your interests are, but this might be some options to get out and meet new people.

And perhaps you should talk to your doctor, mention the problems with the antidepressants, and possibly get into therapy to help cope with some of these feelings better.

There aren't any groups to join, I have indeed looked, I haven't just wallowed in pity while this got worse. I suck at sports, don't need yet another reason to feel like I'm inferior to everyone. My last resort was my online friends (group of 4 friends whom I've been hanging out with for a year or two now) but i realise more and more that they honestly couldn't give less of a fuck about me.

I've been moving from one anti depressant to another for about a year now, and I've just finished seeing my psychologist, I was better, but the whole no friends thing got me really down again.

Hey,

I understand the stress of feeling alone and not having many outlets to turn to; I'm in a similar situation. Please feel free to PM me anytime if you need a friend.

I understand the no social life thing since my life is exactly like that, to get me through it i just say another year of high school and then im off to collage where i can start a new life for myself. One where i actually have friends and actually get invited to partys.

I can really relate to what you're going through. My friends have been treating me awful and I have been by myself a huge amount of the time. I'm also a senior but finally decided to start joining clubs and am beginning to meet some new people. I know it's hard but you're about to graduate! Soon you will be moving on to bigger and better things and you will meet a lot of new great people.
