been to a therapist and of no use. I do not have any friends and find it hard since childhood to make friends. I feel so alone. do have the odd work colleges and no one that I can just go out with and just share. do have a boyfriend. I go into deep depressions and sometimes cannot cry for months and then will cry for days and get extremely frustrated. I am angry and frustrated all the time. I feel unwanted and loose sleep over it. I have tried meditation, tried excercising, reading... all temporary only

Sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience with one therapist- sometimes you and a therapist just don't "click" and don't work together well ; but with someone else it could work much better. Spome therapists, unfortunately, use old-fashioned methods of limited effectiveness, compared with more modern and effective methods. Get a proper expert specialist psych assessment, as there could well be a degree of depression needing treatment, as well as counselling to help you improve self-esteem and to learn how to make and develop friendships
