Oh, and for the year I was off work in IT, my "hobby" paid my bills -- I have a massage therapy license. I made $15 an hour plus tips, til I was blessed to return to work.

I haven't seen my biological family in years. I also am alone. So you are not alone in being alone.

I work in IT. What area is your degree in? IT is very active where I live, which is in Houston, TX. Things were rough here in 2008 and 2009. But since 2009, we have been on an upswing due to the booming oil and gas industry. And if all else fails, and you are only making 15 dollars an hour, and can'...

omerjones, http://psychcentral.com/news/2012/02/20/dehydration-influences-mood-cognition/35037.html If you are working a lot, there is a good chance you are dehydrated. 80% of the population is dehydrated and most don't know it. Dehydration can cause anxiety (see article above). Also, you can drink ...

LonelyShadow,
Don't give up. There's more to come that you cannot see right now. It is the worst time to make a decision, such as ending your life, when you are depressed. Depression can ebb and flow; if and when things get a little better, you will hopefully see some things in a new way.

LonelyShadow,
Give yourself time. You didn't get to where you are overnight, and it will probably take longer than overnight to build something new :)

LonelyShadow,
You have found a good place to start, I think :)
If you start posting and getting to know people here, and they get to know you, I think you will find people who understand you and who would appreciate your friendship :)

RainbowShadow, I am so sorry you are going through this. Your brother sounds like a psychopath -- a person lacking in empathy and remorse, with no consideration for others. You have mentioned your mother. What about your father? Where is he? It would be great if you could get out of the house and fi...

LonelyShadow, Congratulations on finishing college! You should not feel guilty about telling your family NO when they want money. You have your own problems to solve in life, such as finding a job and taking care of yourself. It doesn't sound like you were born into a supportive group of people. Tha...

Anders1122, I like what Fallen said. I think that if you are looking for a relationship with another person, the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. If you love and accept yourself, then you will not allow someone else into your life who doesn't accept you. Having said tha...

Jane123, and Fallen, Fallen, your advice is fantastic. I do know that in Australia there are a lot more naturopaths available and a lot more homeopathic remedies. Jane123, are you here in the States? Here are somethings you might want to consider -- beyond the vitamins. For emotional distress, Emoti...

MintSnowflakes, How old are you? Are you in school? Is there anything you can do to create your own life and new friends? Such as, join a new group? One thing that I know for sure: When people are excluding you and treating you badly, you must NOT try to "make deals with them" or "Try...
