I'm 24 and have been dealing with the result of being left my my abusive, drunk father as a kid. Work is great, but relationships seem impossible. I get attached instantly no matter how hard I resist, and when they leave, I'm a mess. I fall into depression and loneliness. It doesn't even matter if I saw this guy for a month or 4 years, it's the same after effect, triggering my abandonment issues. But almost 25, now I'm feeling a pressure to find a guy.

I lost my dear husband 22 years ago after being diagnosed with stomach cancer. He died 6 months later at the age of 65. Felt like half a person for a long time but eventually met a lovely man through dancing and we were together for 10 years before he suddenly collapsed and died on the beach while we were on holiday. What a trauma that was and I have been alone ever since. I do belong to walking groups and have good neighbours, but really miss the closeness of a special relationship. Don't think I can ever replace the feeling of being loved and cared for but life has to go on and I am very thankful to have the friendship and support of my daughter and two sons, with 6 grandchildren. They live locally and I see them frequently. So many ladies are left alone when husbands pass away - we just have to make the best of our lives without them

loneliness is a curse and sometimes a gift, but continuous losses of loved ones, passed and still with us. this loneliness is continuos and leaves a mark and dark spot in what was once a bright and opptomisstic outlook, now i struggle everyday with trying to simply find some happiness in what i do.

I'm 46. I live alone. But I've been alone most of my life. My family unite was not stable. There was physical abuse and sexual abuse. I've never been married I don't have any children and since the age of 20 I've been diagnosed with depression. Oh I forgot to mention that I've been overweight all my life as well. Right now I am going through a Health crisis. I have a tumor hurt between my right ovary and uterus. There's a bunch of testing that's coming up. I'm freaked out cuz I don't know what I'm facing. Cancer does run in my family. The support I thought it was going to get from the few friends I thought I had is not there. And all of my immediate family is gone it's just me and my kitty cat Candy. The one friend that is the most supportive has her own health issues. I hate to say this but at this point I don't even know if I don't want to live or die. At least not from cancer. I'm trying to find a reason to keep going. Feels like I have nothing to show for my life and that it was a total waste. I don't know what I expect to get from posting this I just thought I would reach out. Thank you.

Hi I'm Jerry, I live on Oahu,Hawaii and I feel very alone and falling into seclusion. I've been going thru this for couple of years now and can't seem to shake this. I'm in a relationship now but seem to be more lonely because of her circumstances. Need to get advice

Hi. I am a 44 year old male and I am dealing with extreme loneliness & extreme isolation. I have never been married and dont have any children. I also am very shy & bashful. I am just wondering if I will ALWAYS be alone and single, and if so, how to deal with it in a positive way?? I am unable to do things by myself, such as go out to eat, go to the movies, or go to church, due to my insecurity and low self-esteem & low self-confidence. I have been to two different counselors in the past but was always unable to do what they suggested. I am what you call a 'loner' & a 'social outcast' I feel like. I go all day without ever socializing or interacting with anyone. There is noone I can just call up on the phone and chat for awhile. I feel sooo lost & alone in a world full of people and feel like I am drowning in a sea of loneliness.
