I'm really nervous about starting another semester of university on Monday. Thankfully it'll be all online, but between my dad's situation and the severe depression and anxiety I've been getting lately, I just don't feel like I'm capable of doing my "best" right now. And my parents are going to be immensely disappointed if I don't maintain my 4.0 GPA this time around...

I get tired of existing sometimes. It'd be much easier not to. Everyday I'm reminded that I'm not normal, not functional. Always feel like everyone is participating in a world I can't even come close to. I don't much enjoy life, and find everything tiring and anxiety inducing. It's all strange and inaccessible to me. Just want all my awkwardness, anxiety, and exhaustion to dissipate.

When someone has a social job in sales and talks a lot at a party and then says "I'm an introvert, so it was hard to learn it but I got promoted..." I'm like... [insert Samuel Jackson glare gif here].

I dunno, I think I'm an extrovert. I mean, I need people in my life and I see them everyday and have to interact with them.
...it was just painful to hear after sitting painfully for hours at a small gathering.

Good luck tomorrow! You seem like you will do okay with the school work even if you are not at your best. I'm sure it will get easier once you get in the groove.

Hey fellow returnee. Hope feeling lonely doesn't last long.

It does seem tiring. I don't think the awkwardness and anxiety ever goes all away, but we can try and deal with it better. Then maybe its not so exhausting to deal with it. Sorry your feeling like this.

Doesn't sound like a fun gathering. It does seem like talk of introverts is out there a lot more, and not always coherently.

I'm sorry your feeling down, hopefully today is better. Does she know generally that you have dealt with depression in the past?
Either way, some might say this is not good advice, but would a euphemism be easier? Just say 'I want you to know I'm feeling down today, and it is not on you. I don't need you to do anything. But I hope you understand I'm not up for doing much.' ?

I haven't had any physical contact with another person since February 14th. None. Very sad.

Trying to get decent at saxophone or anything really is a sisyphean task, and I can only read a few pages from a book before getting too tired to continue (taking supplements hasn't helped).

I don't know where this smell of cologne is coming from. It's incredibly overpowering.
