I am a nineteen year old male college student and I think I may have some kind of mental disease. I feel socially retarded, I have extreme difficulty making conversation with the opposite sex and therefore and still a virgin. I can not think straight anymore, its like nobody is home in my brain. I feel empty and tired of being unhappy. I am very lonely but I just cant seem to find words when I try and talk to people, especially when it comes to a sense of humor. I feel like people dislike me as soon as I meet them. I have currently been taking wellbutrin for two months now but I still feel socially inept and depressed. What is wrong with me? Is this genetic because my father is the same way and I cant stand him because I feel like I am turning into what he is. I cant keep living like this. Please help me someone.

Tell all of this to your doctor. It is possible that the wellbutrin isn't working and you need to try something else. Also it may help to go to a therapist to talk things out.
