Default Such a loner

I feel like I want to cry but I know that I can't. I struggle with loneliness so much that sometimes I wonder how I have any friends. My self-esteem is terrible. I'm afraid of talking to new people irl. I often feel like a burden to the few friends I have and thus often avoid talking to them. Can anybody help me?

I think you need to tell somebody how you feel. Maybe a parent or you're doctor. They can help with depression

I suggest just put your prob in one thread.

That makes you more likeable.

Sorry to say, even if you dress your prob in other words in each thread, it still remains the same problem. So if you spreading the same prob in several threads that way, you imo only generate the impression that you are an attention-grabbing weenie or such.

and take SJ's advice

Don't be mean Liam...

Andrew, by posting in the Depression, Self Harm, and Suicide (DSHS) sub-forum you have made the first step in acknowledging that you have an issue which could be considered a risk factor for DSHS. If you haven't spoken with a health professional (not a dentist though - good for teeth, bad for brain) that's the first port of call. Talk to your doctor, school nurse, etc. See what they say, what they suggest, and then report back.
If they say "it's just a phase" go to another one. If 2 professionals say it's just a phase then it is, but you should see someone who can give you some actual medical insight.

Once they have given you a diagnosis, it may just be a case of eat more vegetables (or some other food group - diet can affect a lot of things), it may be needing to talk to more people, or going out more. Whatever it is, it is usually something quite easy to start with to see if it helps.

If you need someone to talk to though, my inbox is always open, no matter what you need to talk about.

Do you think you are awkward around persons? If you say yes, try telling them you know you are awkward, even through you're cute and I dont think you are awkward at all. "Respect" my advice and if my calculations are correct, you will become more sociable :* <3

Gotta disagree with BigJ. Running to a doctor every time you feel shitty is not the answer. Psychiatrists make more money the more pills they push. They'll medicate you, even if that's not what you need. See if you can solve the problem first. Confide in friends and family, make an active effort to improve your social life, and make sure you're taking good care of yourself (healthy diet, exercise, plenty of sunlight). Ask yourself why you feel like a burden. If you can come up with legitimate reasons that you are, work on it. If you can't, remind yourself of that when you're thinking of avoiding your friends. And frankly, if they felt like you're a burden, they probably wouldn't be trying. And if you're having to avoid them, they obviously are. So try to take a little comfort in knowing that they don't see it that way.

I'm not saying run to them all the time, but you should talk to them.

If it makes life easier, it's worth a shot. If they say they can't do anything, better to have tried and failed, than never tried at all.

But they will never say that. Because then they don't get paid. In my experience, people who go to psychiatrists always get pressured into taking medication. Even the ones who went in saying they didn't want that.
