Did you lose something important to you? What is creating the feelings of loss and confusion?

I don't have a girlfriend or many friends, while most of my classmates have both. That creates a feeling of jealousy and inferiority and depression and confusion in me. I'd have elaborated but it's not private here.

Ah I totally get it. It sounds like its time to work on acceptance. I understand your frustration. Making friends and establishing intimacies is hard. Do you make much of an effort to connect to the people around you?

Due to my disabilities it's hard to keep the conversation going from awkward. I am also numb most of the times and I fake feelings just to avoid becoming more numb. The emotions I mentioned before aren't as severe as they could have been.

He doesn't have much time to listen to his patients. There are very few psychiatrists in our local region and I am going with his treatment plan - Talk minimal with him in the consulting room, and take the meds. I cannot elaborate this either, but he doesn't have much time to put it simply.
