    Alright, maybe just do it with lukewarm water instead? It'd still be the same sort of effect of being drenched while fully clothed.

    That sounds great! Have you tried applying for related jobs if you can't find exactly what you want right now?

    Well, my dream is to run my own business, but I probably need to raise some money (doing anything, really) first and move out for my own sanity. So anything I can find, TBH, :lol:
    I'm looking at education jobs or going freelance with Blue Tutors. Too chicken to go freelance though

    Hello. I have before posted here with my profile but now i've decided to post anonymously

    I'm a 19 year old boy who has social anxiety and depression, i'm going back to college to study Access to Business now here's the problem. My personality is ZERO (e.g i don't watch football and it makes me feel like a ******), i'm scared of people because i live in London. In the past my college track record has been poor hence getting kicked out of colleges due to attendance (bunking off) just because i can't cope or make friends.

    Everyone sees me as a loner or a disabled ****ing ****e. HM and customs have just sued my parents £5000 for poor track record hence the pressure is on otherwise they pay another £3000 if i get kicked out.

    My question is im planning to take alcohol... It's the only way to help. I've had every single therapy and have had antidepressants and none has worked, however im planning next week to attend a social anxiety support group. So im prepared to drink just a few sips a day just to help me feel good and maybe become the most popular student in the college.

    I just want to hear experience from others in which alcohol has helped them in college.

    Im gonna be brutally honest here.

    Its a stupid idea. Not only do you run the risk of becoming an alcoholic (needing alcohol to get through the day) you risk physical health problems as well. But alcohol is also a depressant, so it will be completely counterproductive.
    Also it will most likely mean you wont become popular, being a drunk isnt a good look imo smelling of a brewery in the middle of the day isnt fun.
    You will encounter more problems.

    So no dont do it.

    Okay, hello! Firstly please don't use the word ******, it's offensive.

    Secondly, alcohol is not the way to help, I thought it was as well, it was the only way I could feel up beat and happy but you just feel worse afterwards. You need to get professional help, go to the doctors, when you go to college tell them about what is happening and they'll help you out, thats what they're there for. Alcohol will not solve this and you can't fix this on your own.

    Just because you don't like football doesnt mean you don't have a personality, loads of boys don't like football surely there's something you like to do?

    It isn't just you two. I feel the same. The friends I do have are bloody amazing don't get me wrong. But there are only a handful of them and they are way too spread out around the country . And I'm way too shy and anxious around new people to make new friends. I have a few acquaintances who live near me, but I have no clue how to make the lead to being friends.
    I only really make friends with people i'm forced to be around long enough to like. I'm not bad at making friends, i'm just too lazy

    (Original post by superwolf)
    I'd actually say five is a fair number of friends. :dontknow:
    Most people i know have like 20 close friends, especially since we're all still at uni :/ i'd still rather have 5 close friends than 20 not close friends, but i'd rather have 20 close friends than 5 close

    That made no sense

    (Original post by lauraaaaa)
    you know you have no friends when you haven't even been nominated...
    You will once you're at uni, everybody bloody knows everyone

    Thanks I am pretty pleased with myself that I gave it my best shot rather than backing out.

    I saw your post about your doctor's visit. It's pretty bad that they won't see you but that's the NHS I guess. I want to say that I hope they see you in the future but that would mean a deterioration on your end so maybe not the best thing to wish for. It does sound like you have a decent GP though that she's willing to help and listen to you. How was last night btw? Did the man return?

    May I join the 'I have no friends group?'

    It's been a month since I've had a face to face conversation with someone who isn't a family member. Says a lot about me.

    If your breathing becomes increasingly difficult, go to A&E immediately! Hope it does die down soon!
