Hi there Justme, It can be hard being on your own. Try turning on the radio at night, just high enough to hear it. Also get a fan and turn it on for noise, it helps cover up those creaky noises you hear at night.
My husband works nights so I have two fans going and leave about three lights on at night. I will set the timer on the radio or tv to go off after a few hours and then the fans are still going.

Come here and talk when you need to!

Greetings, justme --

I also know what it's like to be alone for extended periods of time. Do you like to read? That really helps me. Could you get a pet? I have cats, and so I guess in a sense I am never truly "alone". While I don't like the stinky catboxes, I really enjoy their quiet (well, most of the time) companionship.

Hope this helps.

I love my cat too!  Having a pet is so comforting.  She drives me crazy with all the attention she needs, but she's worth it!  Can you have a pet where you live?
Have you tried going out to meet some people, make some new friends?  Have them over for dinner one night! 
When I went to school in another province (I'm in Canada), I found that I got lonely too.  Until I started having my class mates over for visits.  That really helped a lot!

If you can't have pets maybe you could buy a betta fish. They're beautiful and it would be something that is alive. Having soft music is nice. Hope you find an answer. Dee
