No one's here to judge.
No one's going to say, "You should feel bad for what you've just done." A quick glance around reveals these are not ideal circumstances we're living in, and if there's something you need to do to feel just that much more alive no one's going to say, "No. Stop." Sometimes the loneliness is just too much, rolling over you like a sickness. And like a sickness, it needs to be treated.

Asking my doctor to tell my work I can only work certain hours because of my depression, when that's only half true. When I get home everyone is asleep and I'm very lonely so by the way of my doctor forcing my job to give me the schedule I want so I can get home when my family is still awake and I won't be so lonely.

I am in no way creative but was super bored when my shift hours went down by 100 hours a month that I started painting - painting by numbers.
I've played that game once. It is quite satisfying to play but I It was too tedius for me and I got bored of it quickly. I would prefer to play it if it had sort of puzzle element to it.

Talk to myself. I seem to do it all the time. Perhaps I'm mental. I don't know, I wish I had friends. Haha idiot no one likes you. Yes I know. I'll just keep talking to myself then.
Same here. Sometimes I just want to have a really deep, intense conversation about something that's on my mind or something I'm curious about, but I don't want to have it with anyone around me because I don't think they'll understand, so I just have it... with myself. I think it's due to boredom.
I went to the grocery store so [that] I could hear someone talk to me when I was being rung up
I used to work in a pharmacy and a lot of the older people that would come in would stand at talk for ages, even when I was done with their purchase/advice. A lot of the time they lived alone and it was the only interaction they would have in the week. Broke my heart and I loved chatting to them and knowing how happy it made them. I hope you're less lonely now :)
