I am the kind of person who bottles up their emotions,
I don't let things bother me,
I am not good at socializing with others, I've a few close friends,
I've been feeling depressed lately,
It has been that bad, and I don't know what's causing it.

I would like to figure that out.
I would say I started feeling like this a few months ago,
Today, a bunch of things happened at once and now it made me feel worse, even more depressed on top of that constant
Feeling I've been having lately.

I can't talk to the friend I've always relied on, some things happened and that person
Is one of the reasons I'm depressed, I have two other friends but I don't want to burden them
By ranting my head off and my other friend has known me longer and is who I always went to with
My problems till now, I can't.

It feels like I'm suffocating on bottle up emotions, mixed with a lot of other feelings and that depression.
I'm was forced to withdraw from a class, and I've never had to do so for the reason I did this time, which is
Caused by the depression, I don't have a girlfriend I'm too shy to open up to people, and I am self concious.

I don't want to be shy or anti-social any more, I can't stand it, but I've just been in my own bubble so long
That I can't seem to figure out how to burst it myself.

Sorry for ranting, I just couldn't sleep, so much stress hit me at one time.

Get outside - take a walk, a jog, go to a gym and exercise or some other physical activity.
Get a job - spend time around other people.
Spend less time on the computer.

sorry to hear that you can no longer confide in the friend you were so close to before...you know, a friend doesn't consider it a burden when you confide to or even just lament to them...talk to your other friends...maybe they can make you feel better about yourself. The above post has some good ideas....also maybe volunteerinf your time for a worthy cause could help...hope you find the peace you desire...

Well it looks like you have it figured out, you're lonely.
So you should try contact those two friends but don't rant and be a Debbie downer around them just do a quick chat with them via text message or facebook.
