Default Medication to help me get a girlfriend/relationships

I'm a beautiful person on the outside and people love me however...
I'm a loner
Withdrawn
Haven't dated in years
And the few times I did I wouldn't stay long before leaving
I'd always just stop talking to these girls
And I'd feel guilty for doing that but I don't know i just can't figure myself out.


I really clicked well with this one girl from years ago but she still likes me, always has and I've always like her. We've have so much on common it's weird for us not to be together.

Basically I just want a medication that will make me want to work like a normal person, not stay up all night and sleep all day, feeling like a complete waste of gloyous potential. Living to feel altered is no way to live.

I fear everyday in my isolated prison having the potential to spend every precious moment with her. We already talked about having kids. I need to print this for my therapist ha
But I really am suffering and torment from not doing the right thing. And to do nothing with my great opportunities shames not only me but my family.

I don't want to keep going to sleep with being haunted by my fear and insecurity is filling my mind. I hate my mindset and perspective most of the time.

I need her to fulfill my purpose. If I let this opportunity slip my by I will be traumatized. I want to live ...plz ...there is nothing in my way...make my mind well pray for me if you believe it will help

Thanks goodnight

Have you tried CBT or ACT therapy with a competent therapist? I think that would be a good start to work out any underlying problems and also lifestyle changes. It sounds like a self-esteem and self sabotaging issue. I believe in body/mind/spirit unity for a healthy now and future. As far as meds,. they may be helpful but you need to talk to either your current therapist or find another if you are not satisfied with s/he.

I don't think there is such a medication but therapy can help with relationships.

like nammu said...no medication is for relationships..but are you on an antidepressent?
Or anti anxiety med? Your mental state of wanting to be a loner could be some form of depression.

I was thinking about an anti-anxiety med, too. That might help!

You stated that you basically want a med that will make you wanto work like a normal person.
What's normal?
You won't find the answers to yourself in a med & you shouldn't be looking for someone to fulfill your purpose! Sorry.

You fulfill your own purpose. No one else. You have many issues you need to grapple with & understand & as you do I think you will build your own self confidence, direction & worth.
You deserve it so put the work into yourself. You'll find your answers.
Fwiw

Getting a relationship can't be done with a med but therapy can help you work through your issues. maybe an antidepressant would help with some of your feelings.

Hm. I would say something like CBT therapy specifically, or that and perhaps a light anti anxiety drug.
