Hi. I'm a 55 yr old single woman who has many issues. I've been experiencing bouts of loneliness as I have no family or friends. As a social butterfly, this is hard and I struggle with controlling the stress and anxiety it produces. I hope to find meaningful connections here and I wish you the same.

      I know there are things in my life that has to change, and soon! But I am taking care of my sister, missing my husband, in pain constantly, my counselor quit her job months ago and I can't find another one yet, my therapist also quit me, and I am almost out of my medicine. Taking care of myself has been the last thing on my mind and I honestly don't have the strength right now! I know that sounds like an excuse, but I am trying to finish my testimony at church. I'm tired.

      Hi I'm 60 and I just can't get used to being alone, I sit around all day talking to myself. I haven't drove in over a year now but plan on starting back, my family has nothing to do with me I guess it's where they have family, I'll take any advise you have on couping with loneliness, it's an awful feeling and you just feel lost in your own life, there's no other missery than being alone

        @sixty good day to you! You know when I struggle to find answers like "how to strengthen my ankles" and "what to do to occupy my time", I Google it. I'm in the middle of trying to get a new counselor, and I don't have anyone to talk to myself right now. So I Google any question I have because I have no one to ask! As long as you Google the right question, you will get the answers you're looking for. Some suggestions though are not good for everybody. The easy part though, is to figure out what you think might help you. Cuz you're not going to want to try everything they suggest. I hope that helped a little. Remember also, there's a lot of lonely people in this world! I bet your neighbor is as lonely as you are! Say hello to your neighbors once in awhile. You might just make a good friend!

      Hi! I am a 57 years old and I am married. My four boys are all grown up and have flown the coop! I am alone most of the time. I also get very lonely. I can't stand to be alone. My mind races, I get eating too much, and smoking too much! I am obese. I have a ton of medical problems. The worst thing I suffer with is pain from osteoarthritis. I have had one of my knees replaced. But, I refuse to do the other knee. The first one was the worst experience of my life. I can't sleep. I lost interest in so much that I used to love. I still go to church because I always leave feeling better afterwards. I am trying to find a new counselor because my old one quit on me. That also helps me. Anytime you want to talk, I am available unless I am at one of my many doctor appointments! Lol

        @Reallyhopeful you need to find another outlet for yourself. Smoking and eating too much isn't helping you. Going to church is a great idea, I'm sure they have resources for you: counselor, therapy, friends, and above all love yourself.

      Loneness is very common these days and I feel you. I struggle with migraines and fatigue so no matter how much I want to give everyone attention, I fall short. I barely take care of myself. I just wanted to be the first to say something to you so you'd know someone hears you though. I definitely do.
