thought maybe I should start a new thread as it does seem to have become a bit fragmented, as 'Messy' said lots of different conversations going on and I do not mean to ignore anybody, there are just so many stories here it's a bit overwhelming and I don't know what to say... depression is an anti-social illness, it makes you selfish. Tornkay, I hope you are finding a way through your tough time at college, loneliness is a huge factor in depression, joining clubs etc that you are interested in should help you make friends but it might just take a bit of time.
Surreyboy, I hope you are getting on ok with your change of medicine. Sorry to hear it is making you so drowsy. I think I am feeling a bit better, thank you... I started to see a counsellor this week, and I felt it was a really positive experience, so nice just to talk to someone and she seemed to understand where I was coming from, and thinks there are some changes I can make which will help me deal with some of these demons! Are you seeing a counsellor?
And for everyone who has posted on this board who feels lonely, I think it is common to all of us here and although we are all strangers it helps to know there are others in the same situation, hopefully there is some comfort in that.
