I tended to isolate myself after my diagnosis. But people in general behaved normally towards me.

I voted yes.

I isolate from society but they isolate me too.

I don’t fit in maybe because I don’t believe in their hierarchy and don’t want a part in it and don’t want them dominating or supressing.

I can’t go to gym even.

Imagine if there was a gym I was right at home in with my people.

Society treated me fine. They paid most of the medical costs and gave me disability money.

What more can you expect…

Hey, I don’t know what to vote. I’m not isolated. But society didn’t treat me fine in other ways (that resulted in psychosis), so I don’t want to vote that. But I have my father and son, friends, people from church who reach out and a neighbour who seeks contact with me - all of them know what I have. If anything, I isolate myself sometimes.

I had friends, and when I was psychotic they all left me. The ones that did stay I told them I was SZ, and I was abandoned because of it

Now I have been 9 years of just socialising with my parents

It’s common to have no friends. I looked it up. Apparently 30% of millennials have no close friends.

Still it leaves a bitter taste to be abandoned by people you thought were friends, but acted like anything but

I used to watch this comedian who said ‘Yes, I am bitter’. I thought it was funny.

I’m sorry they did that. That hurts.

I was also abandonned by nearly all of the friends I had back then. I was without friends for a while, but found a few new friends. Maybe there are new friendships possible for you in the future? My new friends are less “popular” according to societies standards, they all have something. One is very poor and uneducated, the other has psychosis, still another has bipolar disorder. They are kind though, and non-judgemental. I think I have friendships that are more “real” now. I really hope this happens to you too.

Sorry for that. I’ve been lonely for years, before I got to know a few new people. And still they are mostly people who live faraway, so we don’t see eachother often, which I regret.

I’m sorry you are feeling lonely. Are there any social groups or activities in your area?

I was just about to get involved with a MH charity, but I am about to start working again, so I won’t be able to attend
