I don't have any friends near me. My only friend lives out of state. I don't work and I have really bad social anxiety so it's hard to make friends but I really miss being able to say a friend is coming over or I'm going to hang out with a friend. It's really depressing.
i’m sorry, are you in therapy?
just started a few weeks ago. Idk about it right now but obviously I just started so I'm gonna stick to it for a bit longer.
Not all therapists are created equal, so if you end up feeling like this particular therapist isn't helping in the way you'd like, just know that it's okay to switch to someone else. I recently switched therapists because I felt I was no longer making any progress, and my new therapist is amazing. I was scared to switch because I worried about hurting the feelings of my previous therapist, but they are professionals and can handle clients choosing to switch things up. I'm really grateful I made the change. I'm not telling you to switch, but with social anxiety that I can definitely relate to, I wanted to share this experience.
I'm in the same situation and it really is lonely :( I don't have much advice but dms always open for friends or vents
