I know you've probably heard this a gazillion times before but seriously, just be yourself

I have indeed. Over on /r/ForeverAlone, it's a damn cliché. At any rate, it doesn't work.

don't try too hard

I don't drink. I'm on psychiatric medication that interacts badly with alcohol. My mental illnesses would probably also interact badly with alcohol.

So, what do I do now? I'm shut out of seemingly everything, for one reason or another.
