Alone In The Apartment

Hi. First time poster on here. A bit of background because it leads to what I am now. I worked in a call center for 9-10 years, dealing with people on the phone 8 hours a day. I put up with verbal abusers, loud atmosphere on the floor, company not caring for their workers etc. Well about 3 years ago I started to get anxiety attacks and breakdowns at work daily for almost a year, sometimes I left early and went home, other times I went to the hospital or a mental health support center. It was very hard for me to deal with. Well about 2 years ago it escalated so badly one day that I could not take it any longer, so I left work. I went and attempted suicide and was found by the police and woke up in the hospital. I am on meds now for depression and anxiety. This was a major turning point in my life, because at this point, it changed everything about me.So due to working in that environment for so long, I now have issues with myself and people. I prefer not to see people or go out to their place. I don’t trust people. I stay in my apartment not wanting to go out (except to get food and meds). I have no friends to talk to about depression, anxiety and suicide because they just don’t get it or they don’t understand it. I have no motivation probably because I have no one to help me. I have gone to support groups, counselors and a psychiatrist but they can on;y go so far. They have given me tools to help me or help myself, but yet again, alone.I just pray that I had 1 person that was here to talk too. I am scared that sometimes I may slip back into deep depression and then suicide again. I have shut myself off from the world and family and friends. So to recap: I am alone with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts with no one to talk to (in a physical sense, someone coming over to talk to me). Anyways that is my story.
