In January I up and moved on a whim. I moved with one of my best friends. We currently live together. It took a lot for me to get used to my new state as it is much different than where I'm from. I got a job pretty quick and have met a lot of great people.
Lately I have lost all desire to do anything. I've been feeling weird and uncomfortable for a few months but the last few weeks I have been absolutely miserable. I have no desire to see or talk to my friends. Everyone and everything gets on my nerves, and I constantly just want to be left alone. I often go out on drives for no reason for hours on end just to be alone. It's gotten to the point where I'm contemplating packing up all of my stuff, quitting my job, changing my number, and just leaving. I don't want to see or talk to anyone. I don't know where I would go or what I would do. I just want to disappear.
What causes someone to feel like this? I absolutely hate it but I feel like if I had nobody around me it would all be better. I'm a 24 year old male. I'm healthy. I've never been diagnosed with any mental or learning disorders. I'm just over everyone and everything around me.
