Hi folks. Was at my parents' house yesterday. Went out with my mum in the afternoon to do a little bit of shopping. Spent a long time in a 2nd hand bookshop - I rarely buy anything there, but I do enjoy browsing.
Now I'm struggling with loneliness again. Starting to hate the days I have nobody to talk to. Even (especially?) on Twitter, I feel invisible. There's no one to talk to on there and half the time my tweets don't get any response - not even a single 'like'. If it wasn't for you guys, the internet would be an even lonelier place for me :-/ I don't know where to find new online communities that I can be a part of. In the past I just... stumbled across them, but that hasn't happened in years. HW may well be the last one I found by accident!
Maybe I will try an autism forum again. I didn't get on with the ones I tried a few years ago, but perhaps if I take the chip off my shoulder it will go better :-/ Another thing I've thought about
doing - once I get a new laptop - is playing an online game with a large community (most likely an MMORPG). The games I play at the moment are all rather solitary. If I kept up with new games there would be more people talking about
them, but all the games I play are a few years old.
@nssg - Yeah, my tests went fine. Eyes are clear for the moment; the opthalmologist prescribed me a weaker steroid drop to see if that still keeps the inflammation at bay. Trouble is, the hospital pharmacy only had enough for 20 days, so I'm going to have go through the nightmare of dealing with my GP surgery to get more.
@Karen - I ought to give it a go. Pity Headspace turned out to be a rip off - I'll see if I can find another free (or cheap!) meditation app. I don't want to use YouTube - the choice will do my head in.
PS: I spoke to my mum about
work. She was down on the idea of me getting a degree - like I expected - but not against me working in general. She's a keen reader of the news and knows as well as I do the sort of poverty that the Tories are putting people into. I'm not exempt. Just because it hasn't happened to me yet doesn't mean it won't happen. The government is removing the safety net at the bottom of society and sooner or later my safety net will be taken away. I won't inherit money and I certainly won't ever marry into it - my only option for supporting myself will be working.
PPS: Sorry for another lengthy post.
