Hello. For members who can relate to feeling newly lost, hopeless, perhaps misguided in their lives or sense of direction. Anxiety based symptoms and managing to cope with everyday situations and living.
Anyone here from dorset, looking to find some friends. Have 3 amazing children and a husband but so lonely with no friends.
I'm lonely and in need of some friends and support. .. would be great to have a group in which we can arrange meet ups and talk over the phone. Any one is welcome
I have started this group as I cannot find any other groups in York, so let this be the original. I’m desperate to meet fellow sufferers who might understand me, if you feel the same, get in touch.
Users who live in York area. Perhaps to meet informally to start off with, hopefully with the long term aim of getting a DA self help group up and running in York.
I'm struggling at the moment with my depression. Constantly feeling low and alone. I've gone through a lot in the past 2 months with family and being forced out of home to live somewhere on my own that I can't really afford aswell as all the other stresses of bills etc. It would be nice to get out and talk to people who have the same low, alone feeling that I do.
I have been trying to find a group that will do social activities, games and other things like that but there does not seem to be one around in Blackpool. Does anyone wish to suggest a place to meet up in?
Sorry, there are no locations to map
...a place you can be yourself without fear you’re being judged or told how you should act when you’re feeling depressed
I can’t believe I came across this site it’s brilliant...I think it was fate I don’t feel so alone here
I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
