Re: Past Friends and Lonliness
Your story isn't all that uncommon. I went through the same thing: missing events, trying to explain the illness, etc., etc. and all that happened was my friends dwindled down to about none. When I was well, before Lyme Disease and the Fibromyalgia, I had a very active life. Now, I'm lucky if I can get my dog out for a walk.
I just do some family obligations but generally stay inside all day and occupy myself by doing things around here. Online is one of those things--it helps me have somekind of contact with others. Cyber-space has become my lifeline to the world.
Believe me--you do adjust to the new life without all you had before.
And--we are friends on here, so it's hard to say that any of us are really without friends.
