Dog
I agree with lynn74, a dog does help some. I have had my dog for about a year and a half and since I live alone, he is great company.

I get this, although mine is because there is nobody there in case I collapse or something.

Alone
Yeah, I have the constant fear of getting sick with no one around. I have this fear of slipping into a coma or something and no one finding me. My brother is staying with with now, which helps some.

Scared to be alone
Yep I am so scared of bieng on my own, I feel like I depend on my family or boyfrend all the time and friends are not enough, I do no really care if I see them or not. Its like the most important things I seem to want or need in my like if my mum and my partner, without them, or if i have an argument with either of them I go into deep depression and Feel like im going crazy. I can not cope with it. I am trying to be a stronger person and more indipendant, but its easyier said than done.

i feel the same way. my mother is like my security and my panic attacks have been pretty bad the past 3 days. i don't want to leave her side and each time she says she is going to go somewhere i beg her to stay. i feel terrible because its like im keeping her from living her own life but im being selfish. im afraid that im going to die or im going to have a panic attack so great that i wont be able to control it and im going to freak out and call 911 or something. i hate feeling like this. i just started cymbalta today and ive been taking xanex to take the edge off. any advice please give it to me

My girlfriend for about 2 years, is being deplyed for a year. It scares the hell out of me that I''m going to be alone. I live in Washington and my family lives in the San Francisco bya area, so I have really no one around. Don''t get me wrong, I do have friends here, but I don''t have that closeness of always having someone around. I''m scared that I might do something stupid, like fall down hard and hurt myself, or drink myself into a stupper because of being bored. Who will I talk to, who will I interact with, who will give me a hug because I had a bad day, who will just be there for warmth?
I can''t get a dog because I have 2 cats that I think want to kill me lol.
What is a guy to do?
