: Hi, I am very lonely adult suffering from chronic pain. All heathly people do not understand what this is like. Need a freind to speak with, I feel so isolated. Is it possible to ever again find freindship and love? Only reply if you really care about people who are not as fotunate as others. Thank you.

Hi Alone
You are at the right place for friendship, but love?? I believe that love only comes around when you arenít looking for it. There may be love here for you, there are many others here that understand what you are going through, but donít cut yourself short. You are not Ďdamaged goodsí. You do not have to limit your search to other chronic pain people.
The best thing a person can do if looking for someone is to get out of the house and be active. Cultivating yourself with something you enjoy. Itís been said that nothing is sexier than a large smile. The saying that Ďthe idle mind is the devils workshopí is so very true for everyone, but even more true for us chronic painers because of the depression that comes with the constant pain. Get active. You donít mention anything about your condition, can you get out to exercise? Swimming at the YMCA is great. If you canít get out, do you interact with others on-line? I have found a place on-line where you play games with otherís around the world. Itís at I enjoy spades, maybe you can find some game there you enjoy. I have met many people there.
You will find many friends here, you never know what will happen.
Good luck and God bless
