I know exactly how you are feeling as I am doing much worse than I was. I can't seem to get out of this feeling of being so alone and not having enough friends to talk to at night. I know you have your daughters and they are company for you. I too have my sons but they are much older and live on their own. I always worry something will happen to me and no one will find me for days. I just saw my therapist two days ago, yet I am feeling so down and alone. I wonder if other single women feel as alone as I do. I often picture others out and about and enjoying themselves and I feel like I am on the outside looking in. I guess I am having a real pity party.
I understand how having your nails makes you feel better and lifts your spirits. I like to get my hair done about every 5 to 6 weeks and that always makes me feel better. I feel like such a complainer when I know there are people without homes and no food. I should be grateful that I have what I do.
A new series of classes and lectures will start at my town center in September so I am going to sign up for things in hopes of meeting some new people and possibly a new friend. I have gone to many classes but not yet made a connection with anyone. But there is always hope. All I really want is to have even one more new friend.
I feel I may have stolen your post, so I apologize, just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I am hoping a more positive attitude will help me to get by.
Cass, I am hoping you will be feeling better soon. I am thinking of you and will look forward to when we can post and tell about how much better we are feeling. Take good care of yourself. Again sorry for infringing on your post.
