I suffer from anxiety, OCD, and depression. I have very low self esteem due to these issues and by having a learning disability as well. I have been single for 10 years now and have trouble finding romantic relationships and I get lonely a lot. I look forward to talking to all of you on this forum.

It's a combo of the COVID-19 pandemic, my dad recently being hospitalized for severe acute anemia, and feeling really guilty about binge drinking last week. All three combined together at once has really knocked the wind out of me.

Oh dear I’m so sorry....you must be absolutely reeling from the news...your father is lucky to have
a son who cares about him so deeply. Are you doing anything special to take care of yourself to help to withstand covid and other stressors in life?

Thank you for the kind words. I am a Buddhist, and I have been trying to do a lot of mindfulness meditation to help calm me down.
