Okay so I’ve escaped an awful situation and now I’m a single parent – which I literally only got married to avoid in the first place. Someone has set up a bunch of fake profiles in my name and consequently I’m too anxious to post anything anywhere. In addition to this I’ve done a really excellent job of isolating myself from anyone who actually cared. I keep seeing posts on here about being lonely and sad and I’m just so paranoid that I think they are all just taking the mickey out of me. Lol, like I have the monopoly on being lonely – I know right. Please, other lonely people who are filled with sadness, please don’t stop reaching out.
Hi Aly, I’m not a troll but I am genuinely struggling with a lack of friends and increasing sadness and loneliness. It really scares me. Since I started a thread about needing to find some friends I have been genuinely shocked at just how many people are in the same position. I had no idea until I found myself in this situation. I agree with you, let’s keep reaching out and bring some comfort to each other.
Hi Aly, I’m recently separated and having similar feelings to you. I just feel like a target and that people are thinking I’m playing the victim, this probably isn’t true, I just feel isolated. It’s been about 6 weeks since the children’s father moved out so it’s still early early days.
Thank you all so much for posting. It warms my heart to see people reaching out to each other and to me. My heart sank when I saw I had notifications, but now that I have read these responses I’m so pleased. Thank you!
