I can't talk to people

Postby slimkane » Fri Jul 06, 2018 4:39 pm

Hi guys. Umm I'm kinda new to this so I'll just start with introducing myself.
I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and just a year ago I got out of a very, very abusive relationship, that was going on for 3 years.
But what I really need to talk about right now is not about this. For some reason I feel so empty when I talk to other people. It's not even a matter of anxiety, somedays I do feel anxious but that's not everyday (one day I'll feel like I'm the best person ever and the other I just don't really want to see anyone). The problem is, I literally feel empty, and sometimes things people say will just stick to my head and I just won't be able to stop thinking about it. It does make me sad sometimes but it's usually this... emptiness that won't go away.
I really don't know what to do, I'm not sure I even want to have friends.

Have you talked to your dr about this? Is there a specific time when this happened ie starting a new drug?

I imagine it's very hard.

Best wishes

I run on empty at times.
Have times when I feel awkward round other humans.
Times when I just put my blanket over my head and shut every fucker out.

I find other ways to communicate other than talk.
Through sounds
Through images
Through words

There you go three things.
That's probably enough to be going on with
Don't want to give you four...
