</b> it to one of my good friends in grad school. She told me she's annoyed by me being sad all the time, and told me she can't be my friend anymore, and blocked me from AOL instant messanger today. She said I complain too much and am too clingy to her and that I have a problem (which even made me feel worse). This seriously made me have thoughts

<FONT color=black> And finally, one of my guy friends in grad school stopped talking to me because he thought I was trying to ruin his and his gf's relationship. His gf kept asking me questions like if we ever watch TV together. And I said we did sometimes but we're JUST FRIENDS. And then she said oh because he tells me you guys only study (which is not true) and then her and her bf got in a fight.. because his gf doesn't want him watching tv w. other girls (which in my opinion is a controlling gf). So now this guy friend doesn't talk to me eventhough he knows his gf is controlling, complains about her all the time, and knows that I JUST consider him a FRIEND. I feel so alone and helpless. I have so many other friends but they told me they hate seeing me sad. I feel like everyone is annoyed by me because I'm sad almost all the time. And I am on zoloft. I do not know what to do! Help!

I am sorry but I had to edit your post due to rule#

First of all welcome to the forum.
Now,as far as your friends....ones that do not have any type of depression have no idea how to help ones that do.

You can't blame them at all..they are confused and afraid of saying the wrong thing.

As far as the other friends,if there is not any trust in the relationship then why would you even want to be around it?

You deserve to be around people who understand you...

Hi there,

It can be hard to understand why other people dont understand us when we are depressed. But at the same time it is very frustrating for your friends as well as they are unsure about how to help you. Shy has given you some great advice and I hope that many other people will volunteer their opinion as well.

Best Wishes


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.
