    This is probably going to sound pathetic, but I'm so lonely and feeling so down.

    I've just had a fantastic xmas with my family, but now I'm home in an empty house. Most of the time I'm fine, but when no one is here I don't know what to do with myself.

    My mum, dad and youngest sister all live together, and that's where I was for xmas. They live out in the middle of nowhere though, and as I don't drive I can't go and visit them whenever I feel like it.

    My middle sister has a partner and a three year old daughter, so they're a little unit too - it's only me that's on my own.

    I was in a seven year relationship, and although I've been single for a while now, times like this really get to me. I live with my two flatmates, both of who've gone home for the whole of xmas and new year. I've got mates at college, but most have them have also gone home to Ireland for xmas.

    I'm dreading new year, as the friend I was going to go and stay with in Manchester has also now flown home for new year as she lost her job. So it looks like I'll be in on my own, drinking to drown my sorrows.

    As I say, when I'm at uni, I'm fine. I go out socialising and clubbing at least twice a week, and my flatmates are here for girlie nights in (they're both single too) But I haven't even been anywhere today, and feel fed up and lonely. I wish I didn't feel this way, and I can't open up and tell anyone around me because I keep my feelings to myself a lot of the time.

    Anyone else feel like this?

    As guinea pig lover says can you not skype or msn your friends, it will help to feel better and not alone, it will cheer you up. I know its hard, but just keep yourself occupied, maybe a part time/charity work, are there any societies on over christmas. I know what you mean, luckily I came home for christmas from uni, but I understand how you can feel lonely when there is no-one around. I hope this helps, OP. Try to find something to do. You can message me anytime if you want to talk. Good luck. xx
