  • LOL, OP

    Yes, I feel the same way. I wish I had someone. I still don't feel well after taking the wrong meds/going without mine. I'm still exhausted and I have no help. I think I'll have to trick my youngest DD into taking another nap with me today.

  • Great. Now I have that song in my head.

    Sometimes I feel like that.  I have DH, but I try to be strong for the rest of the family.

  • I'm sorry meooma, I am reading a book on loneliness right now. I am sorry that you don't have anyone to share with. I have one very good friend that I can tell anything to. Oh, and my therapist

  • Yes. If by imaginary magic in the sky you man God, I've never heard it put in those terms before!
    It always helps to have close family or friends to be there for you. Last year when I was battling severe depression I had many people to lean on and I couldn't have made it through without their support and help. I hope you can find that support in your circle of people like I did!

  • Yeah I feel like that sometimes, but when I need someone theres no one there for me, I usually vent on here and you guys give great advice.

  • I like my burdens heavy and I like to take care of them. I get perspective from my friends but do it on my own.

  • Anybody who truly believes she never needs someone to lean on is in severe denial.

    I do believe in God, but that doesn't take the place of needed human support, either.

    The one thing I would suggest is that the time to cultivate friendships for support isn't when you are particularly needing support. Go out and do what you enjoy. Meet people. Find friends you can laugh with, have things in common with. Those will be the people who are there for you when you need them. Many people who believe in some particular religion or other meet others of like mind where they worship, but that's not the only way, by any means. Join a painting class. Fly model airplanes. Go square dancing. Volunteer your time somewhere.

    If you have family, it could be you haven't let those who care about you know you need them. Many people don't want to assume anything, especially if you try to be the strong one all the time. Reach out.
