It's true, I don't have anyone IRL that I would call a "friend". I always watch the show where they fix your yard, and they say "Get 6 or 7 of your friends to help" and I always think, I don't have even 2 or 3 people I could call. At work they ask for 2 emergency contacts. I put my husband, and I don't have a second. I have a lot of acquaintances, but someone I could call and say, "Hey, I need some help" nope. I think the reason is because I always put others needs before mine, and my whole life up until recently centered on taking care of my kids and my mom. I am the main breadwinner in the family, and weekends are devoted to cleaning the house, grocery shopping and laundry. I didn't have time for friends. As far as CM, I don't know that anyone here considers me their friend. I know there are people here I look forward to "seeing" but I don't know if the feeling is mutual.
