Hi,
I had a problem with relationships for many years. Other people had to adapt themselves to me and I had taken it for granted. For three years I was a very sucessful student in a yeshiva. Than I went to Israel and there couldn't hold my study partners. I came back to my yeshiva and there I didn't feel as comfortable as before. I than went to even a bigger yeshiva and there I couldn't fit in.
Since than I had two epizodes of mania and psycosis.
I now live with my parents.
My goal to become more independent
I volunteer and look for a job

Sincerely,
Ben

I think it's important to stay positive and keep trying. I also think it's important to develop a support system including a Rav, friends, and perhaps a therapist.
