    Depression is trying to get the best of me

    I don’t know what to do. I feel so isolated. I have no one to talk to about this. I lost all of my friends last year. I lost another friend this year who is also my coworker and is treating me passive aggressively at work and I did absolutely nothing to her. I’m always paranoid that someone is...

    "Normal People"

    I've recently been chatting to someone and I think they want it to get more serious.
