Ive got all the support around me, my family and boyfriend. But im still feeling lonely and lacking connections. I dont have many friends left. I hate these loneliness feelings.

Good evening @Lookingforhappy ,
I hear how lonely things can get for you.
I used to have lots of people around me - but I still felt lonely. Conversely, now I don’t have many people around me but I don’t feel lonely one bit! If anything, I look for “alone” time.
I used to tell my treating team, “all I want is to be happy”. I would strive to be happy. Only when I stopped looking for that happiness did I find true connection and contentment in life.
Perhaps it’s quality over quantity when it comes to friendships? It sounds like you have some amazing supports around you which is a great start.
I wish you all the best in your endeavours.
