In response to a confession. Holy shit. Wow. Yikes. I'm not going to list everything I've gone through lately, but it includes job loss, loss of a cherished loved one, and coming close to losing my own life from an infection. I found a part-time job that's fucking exhausting, and also keep up with the house, lawn, kid and pets while DH is on the road for his own job. And STILL waiting for unemployment to come through. I'M one of the ones reaching out to check on friends and not getting responses. You know, a high-profile man just took his life from depression over the "missing human contact" that you mentioned. I guess your post was helpful, though. It helped me realize that I don't mean much to the people *I* care about. I'm obviously not worth 5 minutes of their time. Maybe I'll start a FB group for people like us.

In response to a confession. Call me bitchy, but it literally takes 15 seconds to send someone a nice text, which is better than nothing. Nobody is THAT busy or "emotionally full".

I think I might be one of those friends who isn't being a good friend. In the past 3 months, I've had several people reach out to me and I never returned their message. I feel a little bad about it, but I don't have any extra room. I'm already emotionally taking care of DH, my dad, and my two best friends (and they are taking care of me too, but it is tiring for all of us). On top of that, I've lost two family members and one friend in the last 6 months, and have 4 others who have been in the hospital (two of whom might not come back out). So if someone other than my BFFs call and leave a message about how they miss human contact, I just can't rally enough to reach back to them. I'm sorry that they are lonely or bored, but I'm emotionally full. I think it is great idea to find others who also feel out of contact and need support to begin a new group of people who support each other.

In response to a confession. I'm so sorry to about your recent breakup. Keep looking up, OP. Things will become more clear once the dust settles. Continue sharing as much as you need on here. There are no judgments. Please take extra good care of yourself right now.

I really don't think she's being dramatic. I understand where the OP is coming from. I'm around her age and my LTR ended 2 years ago. I still think about him every so often, but I wonder how much Is guilt that I'm carrying on top of pre-existing mental health issues that cause overthinking and rumination. I am working on practicing self-forgiveness about how things ended. I'm human and make mistakes, too.

In response to a confession. That seems a tad bit dramatic...

In response to a confession. I'm going through it too. My family has basically ignored me since COVID lockdown started and my friends haven't really reached out much either. It's very lonely. I also think maybe I'm reaching out to the wrong people, but since I don't have many friends, it's just a rough situation.

In response to a confession. Hi, I’m so sorry that you’re going through this, too. I hope your friends will reach back out soon. Please feel free to post on here if you ever need to talk to someone. I have very few friends which makes me sad. I think maybe I’ve been reaching out to the wrong ones. I saw one last weekend for hiking and while I liked catching up, I don’t recall her asking once how I’ve been. She did a lot of talking and I felt the outing feeling drained.
