This has genuinely affected my social skills to a great extent.
Also whenever I feel like going to a Meetup I feel like I can't be consistent due to my travel schedule. As a result I've drifted away from almost all of my friends

Absolutely! I go through cabin fever and it sucks! I try (sometimes fail) to just get out and work out if a cafe or restaurant and try and interact with neighbors

I am working remotely since May and feel so lonely like I have no one to interact with in person for the entire day.

I think I’m having a mental breakdown. I really have tried hard to deal with my depression (therapist/meds/exercise/etc.) but I’m at the end of my rope. I’ve only been at my job for a little under a year, so I don’t feel like I can tell anyone or try and take leave.
