After a good day at work and Aberdeen enjoying such a beautiful day, I came home from work yesterday buzzing with the joys of spring. That disappeared within half an hour because of the crushing silence and loneliness of my house. I tell myself everyday that things will get better & that I have friends I can count on (which I do), but it's difficult to believe it when the reality is that the friends I do have I'm too anxious to contact for fear of depressing them, and things have been the same for so long. I'm really struggling to see how things can get better. I found this forum by chance and am willing to try it out in the belief that I am not the only one experiencing what I am going through and that maybe there are kindred spirits out there to share this with. :unsure:

Welcome to the forum. There are lots of people here who experience depression and isolation. You have come to the right place. Sunny Aberdeen sounds lovely!

Welcome to the forum, Hobbes. :hi:
I agree with Nikkita's suggestion - if you haven't already talked to your GP, then that would be a good place to seek some help.
The springtime is beautiful and I agree it can have a good impact on your mood, but ultimately if there are other things going on for you, you do need that extra support.
It sounds like things are pretty lonely for you. I do hope you stick around on the forum.. whilst it's not a replacement for socialising face-to-face with people, it has helped me a lot.
