I feel so confused and depressed about everything. I'm losing touch with reality. I'm 17 (turning 18) and I just left school last month, all my friends have went their ways (Honestly, I haven't had a real one in almost a year) and I have no one to talk to. I haven't visited this site for a few months now but I need advice and more than that I need friends. I have anxiety and I've never been properly diagnosed with any sort of depression but under these current circumstances I tend to spend a majority of time mildly to heavily depressed, at it's worst I lose the will to even move.
I'm out of sync with daily life, I spend nearly every day inside and it's driving me crazy. I've been told by everybody that this is all a phase and I don't doubt that it is, but I need to know what steps I have to take to get past it. It varies throughout the day (I tend to get heavily depressed around evening and it may or may not persist depending on how well I can distract myself) but right now I'm as lonely as it gets.
If anyone has been through this I'd love to hear about your experiences and beating it. Embarrassingly, I still can't send or answer PMs on here and I'm not sure if I'm allowed to put my email here, but for the time being you can talk to me via this thread. Every advice you guys can give is welcome. Thanks.
