dai Member Posts: 3
Well i got an athritic hip from when i was a boy I was recenly diagnosed with achalasia its a swallowing problem due to my gullet being scared badly and i suffer from bad bouts of depression.Becuase of these 3 illnesses i am so lonely i can hardly bare it any more I have withdrawn from people so much that i just sit in my house watch tv and feel life is passing me by.I did meet up with an old school friend but he been quite lucky in life he got a good job good woman and plenty of extra cash we did start meeting up but i have noticed when he on facebook now he doest bother unless i say some and when he replys its a short sentence and thats it so.Depression is a lonely world to be in anyway my docter today upt my anti-depresants from 15 to 45 mytraepam they make you a bit drousey but i havent felt like myself for a long time.The mad thing is i not really botherd any more to make an effort to even go out my biggest day is shopping which is 20 minutes at most.I wonder how many others are out there just like me.Could you let me know if there are people who just find life a bit to much.???
