How wonderful! I am soooooo very proud of you! PLEASE keep up the great work! Yes, I know it IS work to not harm yourself...folks with depression and/or anxiety know all too well what an effort is can be to get thru a day or even a minute at a time! But my oh my how strong a young woman you have proved to be!
I did peak at your posts on the depression board just now, to see what's up with you of late.
I am sorry that you found your "friends" to not really be friends at all. Sad to say, there's a LOT of that in this wicked old world! Better you find out now, rather than later! You can find real friends though! Are there hobbies or activities that you enjoy or would like to try? For example, photography, cooking, art, etc. You could take classes and meet other folks that like the same things you do! Or you could volunteer to read to elderly or children. The libraries usually love to have volunteers!
Do you think you might enjoy a part time job? If so, you'd likely make friends with your co-workers.
But whatever the case, you can and I truly believe, WILL make new and better friends!
I'm glad you visited here on the A/P forum. I know I don't come on the depression board anymore...I don't even come on here as often as I should...! But I'm trying to do better, cuz everyone's been so supportive and kind to me here and I want to return the favor! ;)
Keep in touch now!
