@weatherconor I'm sorry to hear that, it's a really difficult situation. I know it's not quite the same, but I suffered through a similar experience after 95% left the city I was studying in after uni finished. I'd go out lot too and be meeting new people all the time and it was super fun, until it wasn't anymore. After taking a break from it all I realised that I was also actually quite lonely. My advice is to just try and persevere, try and remain open to new opportunities, and honestly just remember that your health is your #1 priority. The time will come when things begin to slot into place - it's just not great to hear that from people when you're in the woods. In other news, my Sertraline finally started kicking in the past week or so and it's really been helping a lot. people around me have noticed an improvement in my mood, and I haven't been this productive in years. The only problem is that it's totally killed my appetite - I'm having one medium sized meal a day and feeling full. I've lost half a stone in a month and I'm not a big guy anyway. I think I'm going to have to see my doctor and talk to them about it because I can't keep going like this.
