Intro for me

Hey everyone,
I have alot on my mind and would like to seek help.

I dont know how many people can relate but i have much social anxiety which has driven me into seclution, and alcoholism.....and also, needless to say, lonliness.

Im 22 years old recently, have a good job and money but thats about it.
As for making friend, i feel i do not know how. and even with the friend i am able to make, i am un able to atten social functions, like right now is my/a friends birthday partty, but i was too afraid of his friends to go and interact.

It is very strange because at times i am able to be comfortable with myself and make others around me interested, but at most times i am alone and feel akward and wish to0 be alone.

i guess mostly, this post is about releasing a feeling, because it has been all disturbing me very much lately. i dont knwo how successfull it is to post such a thing to people like yourselves who are mostly introverted like me, because maybe, if you are like me, other peoples problems do not interest you, but only yours. but maybe i am wrong about this.

anwyay, this is the main problem right now, i have much social anxiety and seculde myself to lonliness as much as possib le....although i wish i were able to interact with others, i feel i cannot and would do nothing but lose dignity during a social meeting. so this is my problem and that is all. :)

Hope to talk to some nice people

Hi you are wrong we are interested in your problem, If we actually sort it not sure but we can offer support for you and give advice.
I have anxiety n I have run out of a party, It was at a christmas party n I then had to deal with the snow n walk home, I once got out of a car 20 miles before home n then had to sleep in the cold for the night until I could get a bus home the next morning.
Theres been thousand of times when I have walked out of the pub even in full conversation.
Like the spider you have to keep trying, Take care j d

thank you for your support james,

To be honest i moved to a new city last year and have been stuck here due to a job. ive been very uncomfortable and alone, to be brutally honest, was almost successfull in killing myself recently.
so after finding a place like this it is nice to know there are people out there who listen.

and your story is also somehting i can imagine, i have done such thigns before too

COLOR="Blue"]Kurt I once nearly killed myself by od, If you feel this bad are you sure it isnt more than anxiety. I'm not a doctor so I cannot diagnose, but you do sound very lonely, I didnt check your profile which city are you in? You sound like you need loads of support, keep posting.[/COLOR]
