I normally use the anxiety room but i've found that the two are very closely linked.

I'm finding it very hard at the moment. Not only am i depressed but my best friend, who i atlk to about anything, is also v.down. So i feel i can no longer talk to her. I've also become extremely shy and i didn't speak much at all in college today.
This lead my best friend to believe i no longer want to be her friend!!!! I couldn't believe it, she means a lot to me. So i've got to sort that out with her tonight. (i live in the u.k, 7hrs ahead)
I feel very lonely, it's like i have no one to talk to. My family don't really understand, i'm only 17. I'm very worried about everything, especially my best mate, seeing her so down hurts alot. It feels like there's no way out of all this, and it's so so hard.

Sorry this is so long and depressing.
thanks for reading it.

Charlie 2, As the mom of a son around your age, I am always seeing him struggling with these things!And my advice to you is(even though I can't follow this same advice sometimes!!haha)to find more support systems!I tend to be shy and my son is too,(for all his tough guy image)and talking when the only thing you WANT to do is disappear in your room, is the worst way to feel better!Take care and talk...even about neutral topics..doesn't have to start off about 'serious' topics...

I really don't understand the issue. Is there something that happened between the two of you that caused this separation? Was there an argument? If you don't trust her don't tell her a thing about your personal life. We've probably learned that we should "keep friends close and enemy's closer". Good luck!
There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.

Don't close the door of communication. if your finding it hard give it a day or two and try again. i feel sad that you are running through this at your age, dont give up easily and keep trying :) i hope what your are running through is just a phase and that you can get over it , you are still young and starting your life.
