Unhappy Could use some help... please read - September 10th 2010, 07:38 PM

I can't talk to any girl I think I might like. I have never had a girlfriend. I don't know what to do with myself. I don't think I'm afraid of rejection and I'm confident just not in the right way I think. I have had breakdowns because of this and one even in high school in a hallway when I was talking to a friend. I am a caring person but I usually come across as cold. I see a psychologist and am on anti-depressants but neither is helping much. I'm also on a med for add that i think may cause some of my emotional numbness but I am afraid to stop taking them because I hate the way I can't bring myself to do anything about the way I feel. I don't know how much longer I can live like this...

Hey there. I'm really sorry you're having such a rough time with things.
Have you talked to your psychiatrist about how you've been feeling? Maybe he/she could recommend a different medication than one of the ones you're on that might help with the numbness? I have been on a certain anti-depressant before that made me feel very numb and I hated it, but I switched and that one I'm on now doesn't make me feel that way. Of course it's different for everyone though.
I'm not so great with talking to people in general, so I don't have a ton of advice about that, haha. But maybe you could start by trying to make friends with girls, instead of thinking "I'm attracted to her"...? Like, maybe there would be less worry about rejection if you just try to be friends first. I don't know, maybe that's just how I like to do things. And honestly, there are girls who find it really difficult to talk to guys they like as well, and those are the girls who usually fall for the semi-awkward guys. Don't lose hope, it's not like you'll never be able to talk to someone.
There's someone out there, and things can get better, you just have to work at it a bit. I really think maybe talking to your psychologist might help though, maybe you could switch a med or something that could help.
I hope things get better for you. If you need someone to talk to, I'm a good listener (even if I'm not so great with the advice-giving!) PM me anytime.
Stay strong.
