It's strange being alone. I don't know how other people deal with it so well - I just feel like I don't exist. I haven't slept yet..3 more days

You get used to it unfortunately ...but even so it’s not nice all the time :(

Quite often when I am with people I don’t know so well, I feel I don’t exist and come back into existence when I’m alone again.

Strange how things affect different people in different ways.

Personally, I think your feelings are natural. We are increasingly conditioned by society to separate and isolate ourselves - but I believe this goes against the nature of the human animal.

Human touch is vital to human development. Without it we would not exist in the first place...so I think it's totally okay to feel crap if you are on your own, whether it be for days/weeks/months.

(Note: I know there are people out there who prefer to be alone....I am generalizing about the social nature of human beings, the majority of whom form strong societal/familial/marital connections)
