Just need a friend

I have never found it easy to make friends. I have been living in this area for 3 years now and have not been able to find any friends. If it weren't for my loving boyfriend who moved here with me, I would have nobody. Even my Mum, who used to be closer, is becoming more distant. I don't know why. I feel so lonely. That's just the beginning of my story. I know you will hear more from me later.

Hi Angela and welcome,


I recently found a book as I was unpacking some things in my home.

Dear Bennie,

Thankyou so much for replying to me. I didn't say much in my first post because I didn't think anyone would want to read it if I rambled on too much. (See - low self esteem!) As well as low self esteem I have (or low self esteem may be one of the causes of...) my social phobia. So that makes things even harder.

It goes for jobs as well. I get so convinced that they wouldn't want me that I am too scared to even try. And I just KNOW I will have a panic attack at the interview. Also, like I think someone else said, there's that trapped feeling.

So, there you go. Just some of the challenges of my "life".

Thanks for listening,

Angela.
