Depression keeping me from the outside world?..


Q: These past few months have been rough for me. I had just gotten out of a relationship of 8yrs, and right after we had broken up I had met someone and we had talked for a while and I knew I fell in love with this guy too, and I bought him a car out of my own stupidity. And he had gotten back with his ex girlfriend, and now here we are 4months later. They broke up I slept with a guy in the mean time who gave me Clymedia, and I got that taken care of. Then I met someone new and he doesn't know what he wants and the guy who got back with his ex is now trying to talk to me again because they have broken up. And during all of this I'm starting to feel as if I'm depressed, BAD. I can't be left alone without crying, I want to have someone here 24/7. I don't want to spend time with friends or go outside anymore. I only feel comfortable with 1 person. My best friend has been trying to get me out all week but nothing seems to be working. For ex? Today, I was home all morning with my cousin. And as soon as he left the house, I burst into tears? I'm on Leave Of Absence from work for 2 weeks because they think I'm depressed as well. I'm so unsure of what to do. I need help and I know I do, what do I do?

Symptoms:  Depression, anxiety.
