i'm 28 and i've been single for 4 years now, and i am just about going out of my mind (no pun intended!)...yet when i think about meeting people and dating i get really discouraged because of some REALLY negative experiences i have had with people betraying me, usually due to my illness. i already have issues with trust, and with social anxiety too, which all compounds the issue...why is it so hard to connect with people when you have mental health issues? why are people so afraid and judgmental? what can i do about any of these things? all i know is that i am at the point now where i am starting to wonder if it is even possible for me anymore, maybe i have been too isolated for too long...all i know for sure is that i don't want to live alone for the rest of my life....anyone have any similar problems/stories/advice for me here?
