    Loneliness and alone

    I am very depressed. I have alot of anxiety to go with it. My mind has all kinds of thoughts and races . My doctor is taking a casual approach to all this and none of the meds are helping. I am all alone and old now and never in a million years did I think my daughter and oldest grandson would abandon me and leave me forever. Its been 4 yrs. I dont really know why...I cant recall anything major happening. I have begged them and no response. They have changed their phone numbers ect.... I am near the edge. I cannot take this much longer. I have 2 friends but they moved . I have never felt this alone. It is horrible...holidays are spent alone ect.. How long can someone be ignored and left alone to die.

    you are alone so that you are depressed. you need a good friend to be with you all the time and have love for you. having a friend or having a good relationship is your medication. We all human, we can't be stay alone.

    you take care of yourself

        It will never work that way. love is not a product my dear. If anyone wants to have you and would like to be you with and always wants your attention meaning do not ignore that one. Then you will not be ignored at all. You will not get love from everyone it is a simple math. So have the one who have feelings for you and You need to see a therapist dear.

    RE: Loneliness and alone

    I am so sorry to hear of your depression. I understand that sometimes the doctors don't move fast enough. Don't hold anything back when you talk with your doctor. It is our job to make them understand. I don't know what your spiritual life or outlook is, but getting involved somehow in a church can be really helpful. They have counselors to talk to and different groups with people of similar interests. Another thought is that when you put yourself out there to help others, you are actually the one that receives such a great blessing. Volunteering in your community will put you in contact with people and you have a great chance of meeting some really wonderful ones. I wish you the best.

    I can kind of relate to what you're going through, My medronic machine says reach out to family. Good luck with that. Think about maybe a pet? "Near the edge" sounds like you really need someone to talk to. Crisis line counselors are trained and they won't sluff you off. They have lots of resources.

    Holidays, esp. when they cause a 3-day weekend can drive me nuts.
    Don't wait. There's help out there.
