So, I haven't written here for a while. To be honest, haven't been doing good. Changed doctors, because I don't think the last GP understood me, or took me very seriously. Went to the new doctor after work, and well, he said that after reading through my file, seeing all the things I have done and tried to meet people and find friends and make connections, that he doesn't know what else to suggest or try that might help. Many years of therapy hasn't worked, and he said sending me to yet another one will just be repeating the cycle of frustration for all involved. Medications haven't worked. It is just like trying to treat the symptoms, while the cause of them is still happening. And I know it's still there, still happening. I know the loneliness is still there, that there is still nobody to share anything with, nobody to go out with, that the physical and emotional deprivation is still there.
I feel more alone. More lost. The new year has started feeling more invisible than ever.

Hey @JosRapp ,
Happy new year
I am sorry you are struggling with thing, especially when you haven tried so hard to make changes. I feel like I am hanging on by my fingertips lately and can relate to some of what you are going through.
Maybe give the new GP a little bit of time, they might think of something that can help in time. Sometimes its diffucult to come up with something when your put on the spot.
Aloha @greenpea , happy 2020 It's really nice that you have been able to keep up your exercises and healthy efforts. I've been feeling pretty flat and have been slackening off. I have been on and off some meds so I think that might be part of the reason. Some other stuffs going on like most people here.

Still getting used to seeing you around in the daylight hours!
I'm working on a big picture 120x80.. might have bitten off more than I can chew.
I think its a hard time of year to be just good. Glad your shoes are still hitting the pavement and the exercise is still happening

@greenpea Not going to a new therapist. The doctor won't send me to another one, since it has never worked in all the others I went to.
@Gazza75 sorry you are struggling too.
I'm tired of being alone alone in the world. Tired of it feeling like a fight to even just find someone, somewhere, to talk with. Let alone finding any other connection.
