I need someone to talk to

Hi, I'm new here and I really need a support group to talk to because I am starting to relapse. I cannot handle it anymore. I was just diagnosed 3 weeks ago and I have no reason to live. I spend most of of my time alone, trying to understand why I even bother. I destroyed so many friendships and other relationships by withdrawing myself that I don't know how to make friends. If this doesn't work, I figure I might as well stop taking the pills because I don't know where to begin. I feel so alone.

Re: I need someone to talk to

I really feel for you. Do you have a family to talk to? What about your old friends- could you still contact them? Just because you've withdrawn yourself doesn't mean the friendship is destroyed. I am sure if you said that you needed to talk they would listen and be helpful, and even help you restore some of your past friendships.

Don't stop taking the pills. It may not seem that they are helping but consult a doctor before doing anything drastic like that.

You could try counselling or theropy of somesort, I'm sure, which could help to some degree. Speak to your doctor if you decide to and I'd advise you too anyway with you feeling as you do.

Take care. Hope it works out for you.

Thank you for your advice. I really needed someone to talk to. Sometimes everything seems so overwhelming. It so hard to talk to anybody who hasn't had or has someone affected by schitzophrenia. I am truely in your debt. Thank you

Reflection,
How are you doing? I'm new to this board. My mother suffers with schizophrenia but it is controlled by medication. Whenever she's gotten off of her medication things have REALLY gone down hill. Taking pills isn't so bad. I have anxiety attacks and I take a pill to keep them from happening. I am so thankful for that pill! Are you going to see your friends again? It's not good to cut yourself off from them. I hope you'll post again.

Re: I need someone to talk to

It's not easy to deal with. You must keep your mind occupied all the time. I know. Have you ever had any life threatening injuries or events in your life that caused a trauma. Even if you don't admit it, these things will play games with you. We can talk more if you wish. I have been diagnosed with Major Depression - Anxiety - Paranoia - PTSD and Schizophrenia.
