thanks. I suffer from Bipolar depression. The other trouble is I am in France and haven't been able to learn french. Its not easy socializing. That adds to the loneliness and creates disruptive thoughts. So I thght that getting in touch with people online would be of some help.

I am an engineer working in France. My job description doesn't require knowledge of the language. The group is mostly French . The groups quite welcoming, but since they
are all settled here they have their own family lives. Just hanging around is not an option.

I am 25 yrs old. I have lived on my own since my childhood days, parents have been around but not there. Been in not so great mood lately. The mind just keeps shifting from topic to topic and depressive thoughts come easily.

So I guess talking on the forum may be a good idea.

I think you were very brave to go to France! Is there somewhere over there you can go to learn the language?  as that would also help you to meet new people who are in the same position as you!

Yes I joined the French language class, but all of those were with families and little kids. It's just been the wrong time and the wrong place.

I think a French language class is a great idea. Once you have mastered a little French, you can start to practise in real life (With a group of peers of your own age) and slowly build your vocab up. If your in a small group, going up to the bar and saying "Cinq bière s'il vous plait" and offering the barman money is usually a good start! lol Also bear in mind that most French people can speak english. They will appreciate your a learner and make allowances.


Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
