    Hi i know exactly what ur going thru as im going thru it myself. I av no friends, im in a ladies football team but yet feel isolated as they all click and talk etc and im just on my own. Ive tried join in but feel like im ignored as they dont really reply just give me the look. I work but dont av any work mates. Got 2 lovely kids who keep me going. Av got sisters and brothers but they av their own life/families get on with. Ive tried asking to join them on a nightout but no joy. So basically without my kids i dont av anyone. Its hard cause people say u need get out more but how can u when u dont av any friends to go out with. Life is so cruel and lonely sometimes...i hope ur ok

    I'm sorry you're feeling like this OP, Perhaps these feelings are temporary? I use to feel like this previously (I'm 20 btw) and it made me quite depressed. I was encouraged to start a part time job (alongside university). I found that this made things alot better. I felt comfortable and confident in socialising and interacting with colleagues, it improved my social life also. Maybe you could try the same? Maybe this sort of change is something you may need.

    And as for your family (brothers and sisters), drop them a text and arrange days when you all can have a catch up or go out for dinner. I'm assuming as you're all older, it becomes difficult in arranging times to meet or finding the time at all. Maybe planning ahead will help this problem? And it will also help you feel less alone x

    Also, loneliness is not a nice way to feel. Starr doing things that make you feel happy. Pick up a new hobby, learn a new language, write, read, sing? Do something that will make you feel more positive and fulfilled x

    And finally, I'm sure people don't hate you x
