Tried reaching out to someone today, didnt go as hoped. I felt like there might be light at the end of the tunnel but alas it didn't go as planned. I feel so isolated and depressed.

I'm sorry you are feeling like this.

It is really disappointing when you reach out to someone and they don't reach back out. I always take this personal, so I get it. But try not to take it personal as often there is a valid reason why people don't actually reach out you. They may be really over whelmed themselves.

It is easy to feel that no one cares sometimes. Usually I feel that way when I am depressed. But I do not believe it is true. Someone out there is always a good person who cares, even if you can't see it in the minute.

Hang on in there.

Can you try reaching out to anyone else?

I know how you feel. The same has happened to me on numerous occasions. It is rather disconcerting, to say the least. The feeling of isolation and loneliness is one of the most unpleasant and painful feelings there is.

I always find it difficult to ask for help or accept it when offered. When I finally reach out to someone in desperate times, it is more devastating if they are not available! It’s nice to see you are a Well-known member in this group and everyone here is concerned with your welfare! Hope you continue reaching out to whomever is available to support you through these tough times.

Having some support is important. Reaching out to someone who does not respond is very disappointing. I know how it is. Hopefully, you find some support. We all have our struggles, mental health is so complex and difficult to treat and different for everyone.
