I suppose this was because subconsciously it's always made me feel different...

    Unbearable loneliness

    Hi, I've been feeling extremely lonely and helpless in the past 3 years. It started since we (my family and I) moved to a new country, and not being able to make friends is normal at first, but things went downhill from there. I used to be an outgoing and social person, and now I'm suffering...
