Lost, get your butt up and get out there. I spend a lot of time alone myself while my DH is out in the world talking to people everyday and having a life and it does get to me sometimes and I will have a little pity party. Call your friends and make lunch dates even if you have to have them over to your house cause you don't feel like going out. You will soon see who are true friends and who is not. Some days I will run to Walmart just to get out of the house, it's the only big store we have and I know all the employees I'm in there so often, found out yesterday one of my favorite greeters found out he has cancer in his hip. One of my neighbors is fighting cancer and she is in the hospital right now, her elderly husband is running himself ragged right now with the stress and stuff, I think I will fix a meal for him this week and I have told him if he needs anything please call. They don't have any family here to help them. Volunteer at a nursing home, there are people there without family and they love to talk to people. If you love animals volunteer at the animal shelter.
We really do still have a lot to offer to others and it makes us feel so much better to be helping someone in worse shape. I have been dealing with this long enough to know who to talk to when I need to be uplifted and who not to talk to when I'm feeling down.
I've always been a fun person and a social person and I still am just not to the extent I use to be. We use to have big cookouts and family reunions during the summer but now it is small gatherings of family and friends. Can't say I really miss all the work I use to put into things.
luv and hugs
