I feel so alone. I have lived here for 7- ish years. Despite that, I have made zero local friends and my husband's friends don't know how to treat me despite everything. He says they are not really close to him either anymore. My husband helps a great deal, but it's not the same having zero local persons to go and do things with. To top all these feelings of being repulsive etc, my non-legally adoptive mom passed away not even a week ago. I miss her dearly and she is the person I wish I could talk to about all the feelings. I've tried so many different ways to make local friends; it's exasperating.

    Church can be a great support and a great way to make friends. They offer lots of support groups and fellowship.

    💕 So sorry for your lose. I know how very hard it is to deal with the grief of a loved one when you have so much else going on. I tried to remember the best moments when my baby sis passed. Give yourself time to grieve. Some people need years

    I am so sorry for your loss! It is true that some people need years my mom died 5 years ago and I only have it together because of God's grace. Where do you live? A church is a great place to go, or maybe local events you can do. This time of year there's all kinds of different kinds of things going down in places. It's I've always lived in the same place so I don't know what it's like to move away from everything I know, but we're here for you and you can always just talk to us

    They do but they can also be very judgmental when it comes to you not being perfect or you're not believing that God will heal you of your conditions.

      then you aren’t at the right church. I’m Catholic and have been to grief share at a local Methodist church. We didn’t even really talk about religion as much as we shared about our grief journey. I don’t even know what others there believe just that we were all hurting and needed help.

        it could be the wrong place.

    Oh volunteering can be another great way to get out of your head and meet others. Suicide awareness and women shelters are close to my heart so that’s where I go. I’ve met wonderful people that are volunteering and receiving care.

    I'm sorry. I wrote it wrong I didn't mean to be discouraging.

    I'm having the same problem love. I'm a SAHM; I have no friends to truly call my own friends, and my partner goes to work, and I hate most of my partners friends. Getting myself to do self love and self care has helped me enjoy my own company; or learning something new. that's why art is so therapeutic for people, it's never the same and it's always changing. If you have the funds I suggest an emotional support animal!

      this may be a dumb question but what is a SAHM?

    Get involved with the community. It may sound silly but I know on Fridays some of the local comic book stores play games. They are pretty accepting people who may or may not need deodorant. Seriously though,.... whenever I'm feeling alone I go participate in one of their events. It helps

    Congratulations on having a husband. I have no friends, live alone, no one to talk to, no job, no car, no money.... I have nothing but King Jesus and a percentage of a smaller fraction of a dream. Be glad you have a husband.
