Loneliness Is Killing Me

Hi I'm 26 & I was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum a few years ago now.

I have isolated myself since adolescence & have suffered from deppression, anxiety, self harm & have attempted suicide.

Recently I have been trying to reach out & rejoin the world (with mixed results), I started attending group therapy, did some volunteering, joined a gym etc.

But I am dogged by loneliness & struggle to make meaningful connections.

Everyday all I do is distract myself from feelings of intense sorrow & I am so tired of the constant fight to just stay afloat.

I feel more like a ghost than an actual living person, people are so selfish & the world so shallow.

I don't know how to find like minded people but I know I can't go on like this.

Any advice you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
