I've been feeling a lot more lonely and isolated than I have the last few years. The friends that I thought I still had never reach out to me, and it hurts a lot. It's this kinda thing that makes me really reluctant to go out and find more friends. Cause it always ends up like this

Fibromyalgia (FM)

Depression

Anxiety (Including GAD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

    This has always been a struggle for me too. I have good friends, but if I don't go out of my way, we never talk.

      this was me, except for the "good friends" part. I would always have to reach out, but I could see they were constantly with our mutual friends. That really sucked.

    I have been feeling the same way always having to help people when I need help myself

      same. I also had the problem of I would open up to them, but they never opened up to me. Or contacted me first. Which really made me feel like I wasn't close enough to them or I wasn't important enough to them.

    I've been bedridden a while because I hurt my back pretty badly and none of my friends have come to see me. If I can't meet them somewhere, they don't want to meet up. It's really lonely

      I understand. It sucks to be the only one putting in effort

    I was just thinking about this today. I have a total of like 3 friends and I haven’t seen them in months. One messaged me asked if I was okay a few weeks ago but since then my mental health has tanked.

    It's worth it.

    I know exactly what you mean. I relate to this so much! I have a crap ton of health issues, like fibro and CFS, and it’s especially hard to make friends when no one understands the fatigue. I’ve learned that the right friends will stick around. I’m here to chat if you want 🤗
