I’m diagnosed depression, social anxiety disorder and agoraphobia. I hide inside pretty much all the time. My brain is my own worst enemy.

The other night I’ve realized how isolated I really am. Being here is one of the ways I’m trying to change that. Baby steps.

My current safe person is my mom or brother. One of them has to be with me if I’m going out in public. I have a friend I met online years ago that I chat with mental health issues with. She lives on the other side of the country, so I’ve never met her in person. Still, I consider her my best friend. My childhood friends are in a different state. Though when I lived near them I didn’t see them very often. I need therapy, and looked into a place, but they seemed closed.

That is so sad. At least you can try and get out with your mum and brother. I am not sure about therapists where you live but I see one here but have to pay privately as it is face to face. I have one friend here and one who lives 500 mikes away. It is very hard in your situation. So sad for you. I do hope you keep looking for a therapist as for me she has helped me a great deal with my issues. Just join in the posts and you won’t feel so lonely
