    Anyone ever think they can hear peoples thoughts?

    Feel lonely, abandoned, empty, etc...

    I have never been to a therapist so I don't know if my issues are because of more than just depression/anxiety but lately things have been getting worse and worse. I'm prescribed Prozac but it doesn't do much. My "best" friend (she's really the only person I talk to outside my boyfriend) has...
