Dear Manny, I just moved to a new city. I have major anxiety from living alone. What should I do? Sincerely New, Lonely, and Anxious.
Dear Manny, I have no friends and I am very lonely. I spend all of my time on my phone. My mom keeps getting mad at me, but I'm just not comfortable getting out there. Sincerely, Electroncally lonely.
Dear Manny, I lost my family in a car crash last month. Ever since then I have been going into a deep depression. I recently found out I have cancer. I don't know what to do with my life. Please help? Sincerely, Depressed and Lonely.
Dear New, Lonely, and Anxious, You just have to give it time.You will find your people. Maybe try some meet and greets, or gatherings at your local bar. Find a church, club, or team to join. Put yourself out there. Sincerely, Manny.
Dear Electronically Lonely, I sense that you have isolated yourself with technology, surrounding yourself with fake friends. That can make you very lonely. Your mom is right. You need to get outside and make some friends. I promise you will feel better about yourself, and happier and more confident. Sincerely, Manny.
Dear Depressed and Lonely, Traumatic events can cause your life to spiral into places people could never dream of. It's not your fault, you just need to learn how to cope. This event most likely caused your depression, and could have even caused your cancer. Being lonely can really do some bad things to people. I recommend you going to see a therapist. Maybe go see another relative to talk. Sincerely, Manny.
