Question Where do you find your friends?

So, when you pull yourself up by your bootstraps, get
out of the house, who are you friends? I basically
feel like I have none. Everyone seems
too busy or working. I have recently had some
depression lift, but not all of it of course. I
do feel like I am ready to meet new people.
(And of course, I function best in the afternoon
and evening! Not a morning person at all!)

WallSall: I feel the same way as you. Iam new to this area I live in and my friends are usually working. I go for walks on the mountain trails around my house, go for coffee, to the library, etc. But I just don't talk to alot of people. This past Saturday a friend of mine asked me if I would volunteer an hour of my time to hand out poppy's and collect donations. I did it and met all kind's of people. The girl that was handing out poppies with me was around my age, and we hit it off. We are planning on getting together for coffee next week. So, to make a long story short, maybe you could volunteer your time doing something you like, not only will you meet people and make friends but you will also get out of the house and feel like you're doing something. It helped me lift my spirits and feel connected with people. Hope this helps. Good Luck to you.

I feel very isolated due to my depression. I don't have the energy or tolerance (due to anxiety) to go out much. This probably just compounds the problem! At least there's this message board for some contact.
