Hi, I found this by googling exactly the same thing. I left high-school early because I was bullied to the point of a nervous breakdown. I think that’s why I can’t seem to make friends or handle being social. I never learned how to be missing those important years of my life and missing those basic life lessons.
Life and people in general seems so different to how they used to be. If I couldn’t fit in or make any friends then how am I supposed to now. I’m honestly either scared to reach out and try or when I do I get so tired to trying to keep up with them. I honestly feel like there’s something seriously wrong with me. I can’t trust anyone and I wear my heart on my sleeve at the same time.. A very deadly combination. I feel useless and like a big burden 😞 at this point im trying to accept that I’m going to be alone for the rest of my life. I have 3 kids and I'm worried that my problems are going to start affecting them.
What should I do ? keep in mind a bulk billed psychiatrist is hard to find and I can’t afford to pay for sessions. I have gotten help with my mental health in the past.
Any advice ?
