Since some years ago I started registering in forums like this, I thought would be a way to meet other people who deals with the same, loneliness, any other here doesnt have any other to talk (people over 26 old) ? I dont, and it really stress me, and makes things hard. Any other joined for the same ?

Hi mdddd
I joined to gleen some insight into my mental illness and to talk to real people about it, as I couldnt talk to the friends I havnt got, so yes I am over 26 way over but having people to talk to on the net makes me feel less lonely.
All the best woolie.

Hi mdddd, I'm over 26 too and have whinged a few times on here about loneliness. I have lost most of my friends by not keeping in touch, and because when I've been ill I've avoided people. The friends I do have don't know the full story about my MH as don't want to scare or overburden them.

Over here there are befriending services and lunch clubs for pensioners but nothing for working age people who've fallen behind in their social lives.

Do you have Meetup in Argentina?

I understand. I am quite lonely as well. Difficult to carry on and difficult to find anyone who understands the torment of depression. Good to know you. I think most of us join so we can connect with someone who understand. At least it is true for me.

I’m over 26...sadly a good deal over 😄

Loneliness is a massive problem, but one that, at least in the U.K., isn’t really acknowledged or dealt with.

Over 26&I feel quite lonely. Mainly due to child commitments, keeping myself to myself due to depression/anxiety and other things i have going on atmo too. No true friends amd family wrapped up in their own problems. I can still feel lonely when in a room surrounded by vibrant chatty people. Could just be me tho :shrug:

I'm 41 and very lonely even though I'm married (awful situation) and have children. I don't bother with people on anything more than a 'need to know' basis these days because in my experience you'll only be let down.

I’m also in my late 20s. I have felt lonely pretty much all my life. Never had real friends. Only people who have been fake to me and used me for my kind nature. Maybe I’m just meek. It seriously feels bad feeling like this. I’ve longed for good friends and have a social life. But it’s so difficult for me to make connections with people. Idk what’s wrong with me but any connection I’ve made with a person ended with disappointment. No significant other or children. But I’m probably not deserving of that privilege.

You are deserving. You seem like a kind person. Dont get down on yourself.

I’m 31 and very lonely. I wish it could be different but it’s so exhaustive to actively go and look for people to be part of your life. Shouldn’t it just come naturally??

It’s painful

It's the same old story for us who suffer; people just don't want to know. I should be used to it after 20 years of depression but I thought I had some friends I could turn to. I was wrong. Again. I won't make the same mistake again.
