Hi all.

This is my first post on here, it could just as easily have been put under the depression forum, for the last 3 months I have literally shutdown completely on a social level (not intentionally) and I am finding it near impossible to be around others. I know it sounds irrational even stating this but it's like I'm continuing a self-fulfilling prophecy when it comes to socialising as whilst with others I have nothing to say, which is scary as I've always been incredibly socially extroverted previously, I can't pinpoint exact thoughts that enter my mind during social interactions and have no physical symptoms other than the urge for someone else to take the conversation over.

I have been isolating myself as much as possible and can imagine that I'd be content to never see/talk to anyone ever again (dramatic statement I know).

Anyway, I'm really hoping to find at least just one other person who may have experienced something similar socially (particularly if it's a new occurrence and they don't exhibit the 'typical physical sensations of anxiety either).

Thanks for reading. I love that everyone in here is so supportive and responsive to people's posts.

hi!

i presume, you're at uni or have moved away from your home town; perhaps? i'm feeling particularly lonely right now. all's i have for company is my parents and my mothers' dog. everyone seems to have great lives with wives, children, great jobs, new cars and homes and everything i thought i would have as a child. to no such avail? sometimes i wonder what i've gotten wrong? answers on a postcard please as i was just a young adult when i was diagnosed with mental health. btw = i'm 38, and going nowhere. so no spring chicken. maybe someone's going to answer my prayers. :cry2:
