I am sorry your feeling so lonely and I do know how that feels. No curling up in a ball unless you are just going to have a good cry and let you feelings out. Then wipe your tears and make a list of what you can do. Make your list simple and celebrate each tiny goal.
Go outside and just walk around, pay attention to what you see and hear all around you. I will throw on my sunglasses even on a cloudy day so nobody will see my red eyes and just go outside. If the sun is shining I will just sit on the picinic table and remind myself that I have been dealing with depression for 30 years with 24 of those years being pretty dang good.
The more time you spend alone the more the loneliness feelings will get reinforced. If your finding yourself in a really tough situation please do seek a therapist to help you learn to deal with your depression and guide you to ways to break free of feeling lonely.
