I am on an emotional roller coaster. My moods are up and down, mostly down. I feel so alone, so lonely. I have always felt disconnected. I felt like this is middle school, high school, college was a little better and so was the time of my older child's first five years of life For the last five years,things have been different for me. The last three years have been devasting. I started therapy, starting seeing a psyciatrist then began medication. But I still feel withdrawn from my family and friends. I am a control freak and strive for perfection. No matter how much I do to myself to make me feel better, its only short term. I'm afraid to share my thoughts with anyone, i feel wierd enough. I have a new therapist and she is so thoughtful and patient. I am getting to a point that i trust her, but I also feel like I'm a burden. I want all of these problems to go away. I wamt to be happy. In my head I know I'm not the only one in my community who feels this way, but its hard to believe it. Even though I have a successful carreer, nice income, husband 2 great kids, a decent house and 2 cars, I don't feel full. I get high anxiety levels when its time for me to interact wit others. I am comfortable being alone, I want to be social, but it's so hard. My medications doesn't seem to be working. I have so many other issues involving my family members and it definitely has cause a delay in my treatment. i just want to be accepted and happy. I want to be able to communicate my feelings more openly with the people that care about me. I need advice.View Thread
