I have been feeling left out ...i just move to a new place . My "best friends" uh well they know I have mental illness...but they always say i'm trying to help you..but really i feel like they are getting annoyed so i have ask them to stop texting me....i feel lost....
Moving to a new place can be scary and if you're quite a reserved person it can be very hard to try and make new friends.
If you're friends know you have a mental illness and they say they're trying to help you, it's most likely true. If they didn't care and you were annoying them, they wouldn't tell you they're trying to help.
I know it is very hard having a mental illness and it sucks to feel like you have no one standing beside you. But in all of the dark that you're in, there's a lot of people who will stand by you and will help you through what you're going through. I wouldn't suggest asking your friends not to text you too often, as it could become a habit and you may end up distancing yourself a lot from then and I think that would worsen your situation.
Please remember you have a lot of people next to you, even if it doesn't feel like it.
You're very important to your friends and if they're trying to help you, I think you should let them.
The paranoia in your head telling you that you're annoying them is wrong. You're friends are there to help you and stick by you, so maybe confront them about how you're feeling. Telling them you're worried that you're annoying them could lead them to reassure you you're not.
I hope I could be of help and please come to us again if you have any other issues you struggle to talk about
