I have suffered from depression since I was a teenager; as an adult I was also diagnosed with severe symptoms of PTSD. I have suffered unspeakably because of my mental problems. Even my last relationship fell apart because a granddaughter and a daughter of my girlfriend didn't want me as part of their family and they pulled me out of it "the hard way" , as they say. It was a cruel, painful experience for the methods they used to get me out of her life definitely. Since then I have retreated in my solitude, I do not trust anyone personally and I do all i can to avoid any social contact in person. I can say that most of my current friends are virtual, because people out there makes me panic because I'm always afraid that someone will accuse me of something. I hope that my online friends will never betray me, especially those who, like me, are dealing and coping with some form of mental problems.

skibaboo All of my friends are virtual, but I have to say they are great people, and I don't regret it for one minute. I can understand how hard it is to live with ptsd, I have to myself. Most people don't understand how hard it is. I have never really had many 'real life' friends in my life, and because of my illness I have never been able to hold onto them, feeling ostracized from society because I was different. With online support now I don't, I feel vindicated and not alone anymore. 3 years ago
