Even surrounded by many family and friends?
So many times lately I feel so alone, even though I know I'm not. I have a great family whom I love with every beat of my heart, so many friends, who are more than just acquaintances, but I still feel so alone.
Do you ever feel like this? I'd so like to know I'm not the only one.

What the heck is normal anyway I say??
I have felt like this before and felt kind of weird/guilty because I had support etc close by. But sometimes components of your life just cant be understood by people even when they are close.
I guess for me I felt alone because of that, people not understanding/experiencing what I was in some components of my life.
Sorry if that was just a babble.

Yeah, sometimes, and it usually means I need to pay more attention to my mental health. Sometimes getting enough sleep, regular exercise and good food fixes it, sometimes I need therapy/drugs. So...if it goes on for more than a few weeks, and you feel kind of teary or worthless or hopeless, go tell your doctor about it.
Other than that,

TBH OP I only feel like that when I am stressed and something is getting me down.
Most times these days I do live in the moment and am able to enjoy the happiness and joy that comes my way.
I hope you are ok op, have you ever thought of maybe talking to someone close to you about this or maybe even talking to a counsellor. I am not saying that to be mean or anything but just I have been there before and it is not a happy place to be.

I've felt like that before, but it was when I was suffering from depression. When it's under control I don't feel like it at all. Not saying that's the case for you, but just another perspective

Wow I didn't even consider depression, so maybe, if it keeps up, a trip to the Dr might be in order.
I am glad I'm not the only one to feel this way. I hate it so much

Depression. And grief in my case.
It's horrible isn't it OP?

Yes countrymel, grief is so personal and isolating, isn't it.
Yes it can be normal to feel that way, OP. Sometimes it can be a sign of something more sinister.

That's how I feel 90% of the time but I've only realized in the last couple of days that I might have depression.

I used to feel like that all the time, I was depressed. Treatment has changed my life!

I feel like that if my needs aren't being met- maybe time to see a psychologist to help sort it out?

Yes, when I was depressed I felt disconnected from everyone. Even with a great family and loving husband I felt lonely.
2 weeks after I started meds that feeling disappeared.
