well luckily (or maybe not?) i've never had therapy or counseling or medications. just a lot of friends that've been there for me in the past.... and eventually gotten fed up with putting up with me. it sucks that i've lost them all but at the same time when i have a friend who understands it does help a lot.
i agree though, i try to surround myself with everything i love - skiing, music, wandering, exercise, biking, trampoline, etc..... but at times it gets really lonely and boring doing all those things alone with nobody to share them with.
it gets especially hard when i have good times - like periods of time when i view everybody positively, because i REALLY REALLY idolize and look up to and love the people i'm around when that happens. i want to share everything with them and make them as happy as possible and i can be super loyal as a result, but sometimes i don't even get to the point of hanging out with them before i switch back.
