For starters, I'm about to head off to sleep so I may not see any replies, if any, until the morning.

I joined the forum because I'm at the lowest low I've ever felt before, and have tried seeking assistance/advice in several other places to no avail, so thought it'd be worth a shot here.

My main issues right now are mostly extreme anxiety (possibly depression too, who knows), which can be debilitating at times. I feel no purpose in life and have no one close to confide to, or even to have small chat with in the sense of feeling interest from them, so most days I just even avoid the "attempts" and bit my tongue - I feel as if I'm just bothering everyone.

I have a "good" job that I go to, but literally count the minutes every day to come home and then count the minutes once home till sleep...it's as if the only thing I have to "look forward to" is paying bills, waiting for the weekend to be alone, and hopefully retiring at a decent age, because I hate working - not that I'm lazy, just the lack of social interactions makes it the dread of my day to wake up and go there every day. Dont want to rant, so I'll stop here.

Not really sure what the way out this funk is but hopefully can learn some good tips from you all in the different forums.
