... am going through a really tough time and don't have anyone to confide in. I thought I might find some friends here
Initially I would find a therapist to talk with and give you good feed back. You can always find a pastor or priest at your church, which also have
interest groups. If you are a senior, there are senior centers. My local libraries have groups that meet for book clubs, games/cards, etc. Good
luck, they're out there you just have to look.
I moved back to my home area 6 months ago, but to a different town where I know no one. You have to get out there, be pleasant and smile at people in the grocery store, they'll talk to you and you may find a friendship. Also join clubs if you need to meet people. Go to church. I have my dogs and my friends here, to talk to. We're always here to talk to, and we understand things because we have the same problems.
You turned to the right place this is great place to make friends. Two thumbs up for giving your daughter a better place to live, that says allot about you, welcome to our group. And like everyone says go out and shine a smile and you'll see you'll be back to happy in no time, good luck.
I know it can be one of the toughest things to do when you are depressed, but get out of the house. Go to church - get involved in a Bible Study or small group. Ask a Pastor how to connect. Do you work? Get involved there with whatever they have going on. You don't have to be athletic to keep the stats at a softball game. Go to your child's PTSA meetings, and volunteer to help. Go to the library and join a Book Club, etc. Go to the local pool and join a class - chat some in the locker room with people. Do you have any addictions? AA, NA, OA all have great meetings and help each other out a lot. Most meetings (not all) are Open to anyone who has a problem. Go to your local Social Services - there may be groups for depression, etc. Like I said, not easy things to do when you are depressed, but a little at a time. One day you will look back and realize you aren't lonely any more! Best wishes - EJ23
