I lost all of my local friends due to my illnesses and it is so painful...friends of 20 years. They said they can't handle MY illness anymore. I'm so lonely.

    I am so, so sorry you are going through that. Being chronically ill is impossible enough even in the best of circumstances. Losing your social support is a heartbreaking blow. I know it could never come close to in-person connection, but I hope you’re able to get some support here 💕

    Keep being yourself. If someone gives up on your friendship they aren't worthy of it to start with. Is it possible that life has just gotten busy for some of these people? I know that I only get to talk to my best friends about twice a year because they have kids and work now. I hope that you can find some good company soon! ❤️🤗❤️
