I'm waaaay older than in my twenties - but you should edit your settings & add an email addy. That way someone can write personally to you & then the two of you can decide if you want to exchange phone #'s.
Just a note - I get to feeling very isolated as well, a lot of us Lymies do. I think it's worse if you can't work, even less reason for people to be around. I think one of the big issues is simply that others don't know what to say.
I know for me, the friends I did have call on a rare occasion (which upsets my hubby - he's still mad at them), they just can't believe that I am pretty much completely house bound now.
I am to blame some though, as I have trouble with the spoken word frequently enough I feel like a real dummy because I can't come up with the word blue or whatever. I see people I know that I know, but I couldn't remember
their names if someone hung me upside down by my toes!! And a lot of them are relatives! I also have a lot of other issues with my short term memory, but I'll get depressed if I try to think of them all.
Anyway, Skagey - hang in there!!! I really do hope you find someone you can connect with. I like to call them Lymie buddies!! I have an angel of one that I can connect with & I believe that it's very beneficial for both of us.
I just saw that you had just posted this & thought it might help just to know that there are plenty of other Lymies that have gone through this & you are NOT alone - even now!!!
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
