Coping with Loneliness

By March 7, 2006

Follow me on:

Those with bipolar disorder often struggle with isolation and loneliness that arise from feelings of being disconnected from other people – people who understand. Cathleen Henning, the About Guide to Panic / Anxiety Disorders, writes, “Loneliness may be painful and even frightening, and it may indicate a need for introspection. Have you been feeling lonely for a long time? Perhaps it's time to make some changes; it is possible to feel less alone. Loneliness is not a sign that you have failed or that you will never have people in your life. It may take effort to change the way you feel, but you can do it.” Cathleen offers five suggestions for coping with loneliness.
