Hey, guys (which includes girls, of course)!

Sorry I was late getting on an article this week. Last week, my mom was in a car wreck and was injured by the air bag. She's okay, but still in a lot of pain. Anyway, I had to stay with her for 8 days, and didn't have access to a computer!

I just put on a new article entitiled "Isolation and Depression." You can check it out at:
BellaOnline's Depression Site

Hope you're all doing well! Take care of you! smile

My therapist is always encouraging me to get out and do things or join something. It is true, when you get out there you feel so much better, it is just the getting out that is a struggle! I have a hard time making friends.

That's really helpful for me. I was horribly depressed after a road accident. Thanks for your articles. Your article gave me a real boost and I am back again. Thanks again.

Connie, how could you have a hard time making friends?! You're a sweetheart!

I don't have a hard time making friends, except that I don't get out much. Lack of money and time! I have borderline personality disorder, so when someone does something that hurts me, I automatically see them as evil, and I dismiss them! Now that I have a diagnosis and know that I have this issue, I'm trying to work on it, but after being hurt so much, it's difficult. I always think, "Why do I want to trust someone who's already proven to me that I can't trust him or her?" I know that no one is perfect, and if I can see that it wasn't intentional, I can usually let it go, but if I can see that someone hurt me intentionally, it's "SEE YA!!"

I think I attract weird people! I don't know what that says about me LOL!!! Like you, I don't get out much either and now that my kids are all grown and gone away I don't go to school functions except for my grandaughters school stuff. I have had 3 best friends over the years. You just lose touch I guess. We've had a lot of family tradgey (sp??) and I think about calling one of them but then think, I will have to tell them all about it and then I don't call. It is like reliving all over again to tell the story, but it seems like that is all in my mind. I guess having friends would be a normal thing, and I just don't function as normal anymore.

Hi Conniem, whenever I do reach out, I get hurt or betrayed - so now I am down to ONE person - my boyfriend.

He is not perfect, but he has been there for me when no one else has been.

It is about the QUALITY of the people in your life, not the QUANTITY.

That is true about the quality. I am lucky to have a good family. My kids are always very supportive and my husband is my best friend.
