Hello from Russia!

Hello everyone!
I am from Russia. I am 25 years old. I 've been a shy person since I was a kid. I had few friends, but now they 're not at all. I 'm scared to go outside, scared to communicate with people, scared to work. Mental health care is poorly developed in my region. So I don 't know how to get out of this situation. Recently there have been thoughts of suicide. I recently went alone on holiday to Thailand. I really liked everything there, even though I was alone. And now against the background of another country, in Russia life seems quite impossible to me. So I began to study English intensively to increase the chances of leaving Russia. Please help with tips on how to spin out of such a situation, I will answer all possible questions. Sorry about my English.

Hello, nobodies rushin to say hello.

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Hi, well, I couldnt tell you any advice, but Im from eastern Europe myself, so I understand your situation and that life here often seems hell. Dont want to demotivate, but ya know, grass is always greener on the other side, cuz abroad there are other problems too, so its not all unicorns and rainbows. Feel free to PM me if you want to chat.

Hi !! I am the same as you.. I've been introverted and shy since I was a kid. I hail from a third world country; I wish I could leave this goddess forsaken place ...

Hey Rio777, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
