clinically depressed?

I have been depresseed been on ADS still on them had counselling. But in actual fact I just dont like much about my life for various reasons - I dont want to die just move away and start again. I dont particularly like any of my friends and dont think they would miss me at all as for the small amount of family I have I wouldnt miss them either.

Am I just a weird or is it normal to just not like many people much and to want to live a different life and meet to new people?

I've been through depression so I know where you are coming from.

Please talk to your GP again. I was on antidepressants for years and I feel so much more alive without them.

Moving away is a bit drastic but starting a new life can be attractive.

I'm sure you are perfectly normal. Friends can get boring, overly needy and/or annoying. It isn't easy meeting new people but this is a great time of year as evening classes are starting (it might sound boring but it is a start). I did some karate, an evening class, other studying and dancing and now have different friends.

Good luck
