View Full Version : Afraid of being alone..
02-02-2006, 09:53 AM
I find when none of my friends/family aren't online or at school/work.. or something else and I'm by myself. My anxiety tends to go crazy, is anyone else like this? if so.. how do you calm yourself down, any tips you have?

yah freespirit i def. know what your sayin its def. difficult when there is know one around because its harder to keep yourself occupied and you just seem to dwell on your symptoms. i do it all the time. i do anything from cleaning my room to just really getting into some music or a good tv show or movie i know its difficult but you will eventually be able to feel comftorable by yourself - Caseman

I can definetley relate to this, I recently started a new job and they used to let me use messenger at my last place which meant that i was always able to keep in touch with friend and family etc..now i kind of go crazy especially as my mobile phone packed up recently i felt so alone and scared i knew it was dumb but i kept saying that something bad would happen and i would not be able to get in touch ..I clean at lot which sort of helps either that or i end up on here now ;)

Thanks for the replies, it is very hard sometimes.
I end up on here a lot too when I feel alone and I just post away.
That leads me to my other problem.. which is my social anxiety..

You know writing can be a good thing. You can write what you are feeling and then maybe after that a good walk will help. When my son spends the night at a friends house I think to myself "okay so now what am I going to do?" I would sit and think about it and it wasn't doing me any good. So now when he leaves for the night I have plans of my own. I just do it without having to think what I'm going to do. Like clean my closet out, take a nice walk outside, or I go and get some ice cream from DQ and a movie. Then by the time I know it, my night is over and then back to work in the AM. But when I get home and find my son home then it's back to normal...lol
