You have found a great place for support. This is not really a forum we come to to make friends but there is a common ground here where we develop friendships through caring, so welcome to you.
This is a forum in which has been a godsend to me and what i go through on a daily basis. I too do not work outside my home and find that I deal with my depression alone alot of the time, not to mention the life issues that surround me everyday. My faith and trust that people do care about me keep me strong and I do manage to get through really dark days.
I do however want to say one thing to you. You mentioned that you are looking for friends through sites. Be very careful when doing this especially when seeking friends because you are lonely. I am speaking for everyone when I say that this is the one of the few forums in which I am part of. The other couple are trusted and deal with medical issues. In my experience with myself and my child that the internet is a dangerous place. I gathered from your post that you yearn for cyberfriends and I can understand that but please remember this site when you are experiencing times when you need "friends" Sometimes when you feel like that all you need is someone to listen to what you want to say. We are here for each other, keep posting!!
Keep your faith and know that this is a great place to find people that truly care about you.
