Looking for people to talk with

Hi everyone,

I'm dealing with pretty severe OCD plus agoraphobia & depression, and I was isolating myself for a couple of years, trapped in my head. I started doing ERP with someone over the phone in March, and a couple of months ago I started calling people as an exposure. Now I am realizing that one of the only times I get any relief from the obsessive depressive thoughts is when I am talking to someone. The problem is that my friends are not used to talking to me all the time. Any more than once a week and I feel like I'm intruding. I don't have a huge amount of friends and so I don't want to be too pushy. Plus everyone seems so incredibly busy. So I am figuring, why not reach out and try to connect with people who are struggling with similar issues, and maybe develop some more friendships. Maybe there are people in a similar situation as me who would benefit from this. Plus I am thinking that if being engaged with people is what it takes for me to stop obsessing, maybe I should stop fighting it and sort of go with it. I have a huge amount of time on my hands, and a real willingness to connect with people. Thanks for taking a look at this.
