I have been depressed for a long time, over 2 years. The thing is, most people i know have no idea. its like i have gone through a time warp and for the last 2 years, i know little of whats going on in the world. the thing that i realize that makes me different than some people, is that they pay attention to what's going on the world, it seems like people can talk a lot about events and people around the world. is it a symptom of depression- lack of interest in the world and just not being that interested in telling stories? it just seems like my depression has put my mind in a fog, and when in a group of people, it seems like I can't keep up with what's going on. I kind of tend to focus on my thoughts, and get distracted easily from conversations. I also can't talk for a long period of time, unless im with someone i know well. i just don't feel comfortable or have trouble focusing or finding the words. anyone experience this?

Please help, I have been suffering with anxiety and been depressed, I was steady as I had a good support system. I was in a realationship for two years but yesterday out of nowhere she broke up with me and now my main support system is gone. I have nobody to talk to (not even just about being anxious and all that, but nobody to talk to and no interactions.) It hurts emotionally and physically...
My form of self harm is picking at my skin. My fingers and chest especially at the moment look absolutely atrocious. Really worried people are going to notice and say something, and half the time I dont even realise I'm doing it. My skin was looking so healthy, and now I'm back to square 1. I know relapses will happen, but feel so angry and disappointed in myself.
