Hello,
I have OCD and Social Anxiety, I'm currently unemployed and I don't have any friends. I do have family but they're busy with their own lives, so I usually spend alot of time on my own. I guess I joined this forum because I'm lonely and I hoped to find someone who could relate to my situation.

Welcome to the forum. I am someone who spends a lot of time on her own. I make sure I go out every day for a coffee, even if I drink it alone. Are you able to do things like that, or does social phobia make it impossible? How old are you - if it's not a rude question? Do you live with your family?

Hi Christobel,
I'm 26 and I live alone. I can make it to familiar places on my own, when I know it's not going to be busy. I usually try and leave the house once a day even if it's only to the local supermarket and back. I still feel very lonely though.

Hello nonotme,
I'm from England and I don't really have many interests. Well, I watch a lot of TV if that counts as an interest? :)

I have recently signed up for a course, it's only one afternoon a week. It's a really small group and I haven't really spoken to anyone there yet.

Alot of the time I feel too embarrassed to go to places on my own where people are usually with someone or in a group. I'm not very good in busy places either.
