    Hi. I'm new ...

    Hi. Just found this forum and I'm struggling massively with social anxiety disorder at the moment. I've finally ended a 10 year controlling relationship and have now found myself with no friends and I'm completely isolated. I'm having suicidal thoughs and I'm dreading the weekend. I don't know how to carry on. I'm so alone. I have no kids, I'm terrified of losing my parents and I just can't see a way out of this situation. I'm tired of feeling so utterly miserable. My social anxiety is stopping me for joining a group or getting out there and making friends. I'm completely trapped. Hope someone can offer some advice please. I had CBT earlier this year and that helped but I did still have my partner around then and was able to get out for meals, walks and everything I enjoyed doing. The thought of doing all that alone makes my head and heart hurt so much.

    Hi river4644,
    I hope things are getting better for you since your post earlier in July.
    I suffer similar social anxiety problems as you and understand when you say you are unable to join groups or make friends.
    Being alone is never easy, and although I have a partner, I don't believe she fully understands the issues surrounding anxiety, depression, panic etc., so quite often I am alone in my own little world.
    I have seen a counsellor due to fears of losing loved ones, maybe this may be an option for you? Cruse are great, they are a charity counselling service. Maybe there is one in your area?
    I try to remain positive, upbeat and hopeful things will change. I'm sure they will, and hope they will for you too. Focus on the positives, however little they may seem, and watch them grow!
    By the way, I didn't find CBT useful, but glad I tried it. Have a restful weekend,
