My Mood: What Should I do, I just don't feel wanted anymore
10 yr Member
Default What Should I do, I just don't feel wanted anymore

I go to work and have no friends, I come home and read or get on here and feel lonely. I hopefully will start college on Monday, but what happens if people make fun of me because of my disability? I have thought about suicide because I have no friends, everyone is older than me and they don't want to hang out, and when I probably go to school Monday, I am liable to be made fun of. Sometimes I think suicide is the only way out. I go to church and don't feel right there either. Could someone please become my friend and help me.

Hi Jennifer, I'm glad to see you back.

You don't know for sure how it will go to school. Have some hope for it and try not to think of the negative. You might make a lot of friends.

One day at a time ((Jennifer)).

Why don't you tell us more about yourself?

What are your hopes and dreams?

How about taking some exercise, craft, art or dance classes?
Those kinds of classes give plenty of time to talk and make friends as you do the activities.

I know it is hard to handle if people make fun - but hopefully they wouldn't be that rude to do that - and if they do they are the bad ones not you - so just try to hold your head up and keep on going.

Would you be able to try some other churches on your own?
or would your parents get upset by that?

Have you talked with any family members about your feelings of loneliness?
Talking through things is a very good start.

Did you read some of those links on the thread you made last nite?

Just for fun I googled "how to make friends"
- so here is the link to the list of websites that came up-
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search

those might be fun and interesting to look through- have a nice evening.

hi Jennifer,

good to see you back...I was picked on a lot when I was in school as well, and all through college(heckit, I am still picked on these days, just yesterday, as a matter of fact. LOL) ...and I tried very hard to make friends and I did have a lot of "friends"

but they took advantage of my insecurity and used me more than being friends to me. But I DID make some very good friends...

I think Jo is right, first thing you have to do is share some things about you. In order for any of us to make friends, we have to share a little about ourselves first, and then we all discover eachother as we journey the the thing called "life" together...

yes, it is hard...I have those thoughts too...it is good to talk about it...

may I ask you a few questions?? Feel free to answer or not answer them...

1) how old are you?

2) what kind of disability do you have? Some of us that come here, myself included have different disabilities...

3) have you talked to anyone about your suicidal thoughts? Like a psychologist/psychiatrist, counselor, or maybe a local health dept? When I was younger, I got some free help at the local health department...

4) can you talk to your parents about this? Or will they worry too much and you are afraid to worry them?



to introduce myself, I am usually called "E" around here, not to be confused with Jule's "E" so I decided to rename myself...but call me E anyways...LOL

and please keep talking to us, but try not to let us hang too long, cause there are a lot of "mothers" here and me a "father" and we DO get to worry when we see posts of people that are troubled and then we don't hear back from them for awhile...so, keep us posted, eh??

And I hope you like internet hugs

(((HUGS)))

take care there, keep talking...it is OK to have those thoughts, most of us have them either all the time or from time to time...but don't carry them out, OK??

We are all trying to be your friends Jennifer. Starting college is a wonderful, challenging and scary time of your life. You'll have all kinds of opportunities to branch out. Yes, it's possible that some fool will make fun of you...it's also possible that you'll make a new friend and love your classes.

Try to look at it as a new beginning. I usually find that if you're fun to be with, others want to be with you.

Someone once asked the great psychologist Karl Menninger, "What should a person do if he feels a nervous breakdown coming on?"

Menninger replied, "Lock the door, go across the street, and do something to help your neighbor."

Sometimes doing something thoughtful for another person can ease our own pain.

Just keep/or maybe start talking to us Jennifer...we'd like to help.

Hi Jennifer,

I'm also alone most of the time due to pain. Then depression sets in and you lose interest.

I'm impressed by all the sweet messages people are writing you today! See, people REALLY DO CARE ABOUT YOU!! I'm sorry some out there can be so cruel to each other.

Please remember something I felt was spoken to my heart when I went through some of the same things you're going through:

"The attitudes of those people do not DEFINE who you are!"

You were created unique and special....and you have a purpose in life. A hope and a future! This is TRUTH!

I'll be praying for you,

(((hugs)))

Hey E

This is Jennifer, I am still having suicidal thoughts, now someone at work is wanting me gone, what should I do. Feeling sad no friends. To answer your questions,

1. 22 will be 23 January 31
2. Mild Mental Disability
3. I have talked to someone, but no one lately and I really don't want too, I
am scared, so I would rather keep it here.
4. I don't want to upset my parents.

I like playing video games, watching basketball, football, and soccer, and also playing them.
