Why do I start thinking people don't like me when I'm depressed?
Because I'm generally no fun - I:
Don't go out because it feels like too much effort
Don't talk much in group situations
Give the impression of constant boredom or inattention
Stop making small talk, asking people questions and generally interacting in a social way
Don't often smile, joke, tease, or flirt
Forget I've agreed to do something or meet someone
Let other people fill the gaps in conversation (thus making talking to me hard work).
So I end up looking cold and serious and unapproachable and let's be honest, boring. Really can't blame people for not treating me in the same way they used to, because right now I'm not even the same person.
