Hey everyone! I’m a 38 yo male, single and live alone with my 2 dogs. I’ve got a great family and a lot of friends but none that I call super close anymore. Lately, maybe the last 2 years or so I’ve seemed to battle bouts of depression and anxiety.
Some days are great, other days I can’t stop thinking about loneliness and just not fitting in. I’ll avoid certain places just to keep from dealing with crowds but then the next day I have no problem talking to strangers and enjoying the conversation.
I’ve recently changed jobs and have been out of town for the past few weeks for training. I enjoy the job but bring away from all my comfort places has caused the depression to kick back in. I’m so tired of it, days I feel great and have a positive outlook and others I fight to keep from breaking down. Just want to figure it out and live life.
