Hello everyone... I'm an anxious, shy and extremely introverted person. I have been this way since I was a young girl. I find it hard to make friends because people think I'm weird (Yeah, I'm paranoid too). I do have a small circle of friends, but some are away and others just don't want to talk to me anymore... Ever since my exams finished, I've been so lonely! I spent so much time studying, it completely took control of my life. All I ever did was study, it was something to do! But now I just sit at home in my pyjamas, listen to depressing music, play video games and draw. I have no one to talk to... What should I do??? :-(
Thanks very much for reading :-)

I'm sorry you're feeling this way, Hawkward. Loneliness is not fun, and even introverts need social time.
Do you have any friends that are around at all? What about the ones that you say don't want to talk to you anymore: have they told you that, or is that something you're assuming? If it's the latter, how about getting in touch with some of them to see if they'd like to spend some time with you?
You could also try (if you're comfortable with it) joining a club or group activity in your area as a way to meet new people. If drawing is your thing, how about finding an art class? Or maybe there's something else you've always wanted to try?
