I have struggled greatly with depression and anxiety. I was wondering how you develop friendships and intimate relationships. My friendships have fallen apart because I have to cancel plans often. I have no partner. Feel so alone. All my partners leave and I was diagnosed young.
Ugh I feel you so much right now! I’m going through a divorce and I’m definitely not proactively making plans right now due to the intense pain. Hang in there!!
I have had this issue too. I have had a couple of friendships for a while. It really isn’t how many friendships you have, it’s the quality of those friendships. I also have anxiety as well. Sometimes we just need someone to talk to, it doesn’t matter if it’s over the phone or in person. Do you have any outdoor activities you like to do? I saw you posted you like to ride your bike, are there any biking groups in your area? Being a part of a group can help with the loneliness because you don’t have to make a commitment. You can go if you are feeling up to it or not. We have a couple of hiking groups where I live. I have gone with them because I can go if I am feeling good or not go if I’m feeling badly that day. I hope this helps.
I don't have much to give in response to this question, but magnesium has made a huge difference in my anxiety and depression. Make sure u are only taking the recommended daily dose though. Just a side note caffine was causing a lot of anxiety and it took me a while to realize that. I gave it up as well and it helped considerably. Hope u start feeling better soon.
