so this is a first for me. i'm just so overwhelmed with a profound sense of loneliness that i just am not sure what to do anymore. im not entirely sure of what to say here just that i have been really depressed for a really long time now. things seem to be coming to a head lately with all the time i spend alone. certainly not by choice i might add. i just thought i would come on here and see what others may have to offer in the easing of loneliness department...sad

Find something to do. Like going for a walk, or taking the dog for a walk, you can watch me cats go in and out of my china hutch and try and figure out how they go into it in the first place.? OMG... I can't believe them. Stop thinking about the lonelyness it will drive you crazy and that is where stupid thoughts come into play. Clean the bathroom, or your room, or the house or just clean something and if the lonely thoughts come into your mind tell them to go away.

Hi there, I know the feeling. I just joined these boards, so this whole this is a first for me too. And the reason I did it, I think, had a lot to do with being lonely.

By best friend has this thing she does. If I tell her I'm just not having a very easy time, and my mind is going to dark places, and I feel lonely, she tells me to take five minutes. Just five minutes. Sometimes, I watch the clock, sometimes I just estimate. After five minutes, she comes back and asks what I want to do. Anything. Watch a movie? Cry? Read? Go somewhere? Do nothing? Lots of times I don't have a clue what I want, so she keeps telling me to take five minutes. I've spent hours trying to figure out a way to cure my loneliness and the general "ick" feeling of depression. But I tell myself to take it five minutes, by five minutes. It makes time as a whole seem much less daunting, and it also gives you a sense of renewal. Like "Okay, I didn't do anything at all in the last three hours. But I still have these next five minutes. So it can change. There is still some hope"

It doesn't always help. But sometimes, it really does.

Take care,
