        The ability to feel calm, feel happy, feel joy, experience Peace of mind , is within you, under that anxiety, nausea, guilt, that was pulling you down. Serenity, joy, happiness, is inside you, you just have to find it, and bring it to the surface.

        Hmm, lack of sleep and stress slow me personally down and destroy concentration - anything like that happening for you?

        It's not good when that happens. Hope things get better. Have you got a useful doctor to work with? They can sometimes help.

        Thank you, i usually sleep early but it doesn"t seem to help. I am constantly both sleepy and stressed. I will have to consult my psych for this.

        Hopefully when you can get to your appointment it does you a lot of good -- and in the meantime I hope you're feeling better.

        try to just sit with the feeling(of being alone), gradually! increasing each time, don't! keep forcing yourself , in clinical psychology terms that would be called flooding and you should really do that with clinical psychologist who specialises in phobias, what I was advising you should do is called gradual desensitization

        I’m sorry :( I’ve been fired from almost every job I’ve ever had. I ended up finding part-time work doing my own thing. Is there anything you can offer as a small service to friends and neighbors, to earn a bit of money? That’s what I did

        I can teach my friends daughter a foreign language but wouldn't want to be paid for it. She has financial troubles herself.

        Maybe just starting with that would make you feel good and can open up other opportunities :) You don’t have to do it for pay right now.

      I really hate realistic fiction. I just want the good guys to win for a change! I don't need realism in my escapism.
