All I know is I'm people person I like talk to people and I'm isolated I'm alone I'm loosing 😧😲😱

Hey there Mizz;
I understand your isolation issue. The only person I know is grocery clerk and that's because she has a name tag. I dragged myself out of the cabin to get a pitcher so I could make Koo-lAid...I ended up buying wind up chicks and rabbits and wind chimes..ok silly stuff and mailed them to my gkids..cost more to mail it than what I spent at the $store! When I got home, realized I forgot the pitcher "giggles"
All my best, big hugs and much love!
Oh and for eating: I took an orange, bag of chips and a box of Life and put them on my night stand...we know what this will do eh?

Hi Mizzmonroe. Private message me if you want to . 😊

I understand what you are going through. I get lonely a lot as well. And once I was also talked out of money. Because of my bipolar disorder I ended up giving my rent money to a " friend " and that was 5 years ago . Til this day my family is suffering from my mistake .

I hope everything works out for you . And we can talk any time you need to πŸ€—β˜Ί

Hey MizzMonroe,
feel free to message me too! I can't say I know exactly how you feel but I have my own version of the feeling often. I'm having surgery so I don't know how active I will be in the next week but I will respond as much as I can. I hope that you're feeling a bit better

Seems many here are eager to share. I've got family and husband, but sometimes I feel all alone . I lost my 25 year old daughter 4 months ago to an overdose of laced heroin. She had been clean a year. I feel like she was my best listener. I miss her so much . My husband talks to his family constantly about her death, but seems to forget about me. I cry alone . I was suicidal 2 months ago and didn't even tell him. I told his niece and she talked me through it . My pain intensifies when I think of her loss . Sometimes people look like they have it together when they really don't. People think I'm so strong and try to complement me- it's a fascade. Don't be afraid to cry and let it out alone . I hug my daughters teddy bear and sleep with her ashes . Whatever it takes

Hello MizzMonroe here if u need a chat

Apr 01, 2017 11:32 AM

Hotflahmininnow . Omgosh. I am so sorry to hear this kind of pain. When my daughter was 12 years old. She talked about suicide and that was scary enough. I couldn't imagine if she went through with it.

Preyers your family's way . I know nothing I say can take away that kind of pain. But you are not alone . Feel free to private message any time . πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—s

Hotflashminnow, I am so sorry that you are in this kind of pain and that you feel alone. That is a terrible feeling. Especially when you have someone near you. I am a father. I love my children deeply. I would be crushed if something like that would have happened. This suggest to me that you must be a really strong women. I don't think there are hardly any parents who wouldn't want to die after losing their child. But you are still here, talking and strong. I think you have a lot to give to others who may have experienced the same thing because the way it sounds, you are grieving in a way that most of us could relate to. If you ever need to talk. Send me a message. I will listen. Take care.

Apr 01, 2017 5:11 PM

Sorry for your pain Hotflashminnow. Have no idea what you are going through here if you need a chat. We are never alone here xx

Apr 01, 2017 5:39 PM

Hotflashminnow I am soo sorry for your loss I have no words that could ever even comprehend what pain you are going thro.
Your pain, anger, loss and sadness all come out in your words. I wish I had a way that I could come and give you a hug and let you cry on my shoulders forever if you need.
There is nothing, no words or actions that will help you through and there will be more times to come where that ledge will be in front of you again and I hope that your niece will be there again when it does happen, she sounds like a very caring and loving person.
It sounds like you and your husband are grieving separately, maybe he feels that if he talks to you and tells you how he feels it's going to hurt you more and he wants to protect you from his grief or maybe he doesn't know what to say to you because you both lost your daughter, that will never go away no matter what time passes, she'll always be in your heart.
I'm here if you want to talk and it doesn't have to be about anything in particular or it can be about everything in particular, just know you are not alone and that many of us here are here to help you, be anything you need us to be even if all you want to do is scream and shout at us.
We're here for you x

If anyone is interested, I created a support group on Facebook for anyone who lives with chronic illness of any kind, or chronic pain, or for those who love someone who does. Look it up, click join, hope to see you there! "Coping with Chronic Illness/Pain" is the group name.

I've posted this before. It does make me giggle as it is a bloody good description of life with chronic pain. Gx

Apr 06, 2017 9:04 AM

Lmao. So perfect😁

Apr 06, 2017 10:39 AM

I live with my husband, ex mother in law, and my 17 year old son and feel lonely often. Even when they are all home with me.

Being in pain makes me want to isolate myself. I can bearly think and moving is torture. I can't conversate or contribute to my family and I feel useless.

But I intentionally keep myself in the living room making my self as comfortable as I can. I warn my family of my current state and they try to keep that in mind when dealing with me.

I have no friends. Not one!!! No social life outside of my family. It makes my life easier because I don't have to explain myself to anyone why I can't go anywhere or feel up to company. Sure it sucks sometimes but easier on me emotionally.

I do my best to stay positive. I laugh and practice gratefulness daily. I cherish the relationships I have with my close knit family and appreciate the fact they try to be understanding.

I use apps like this when I need to relate to anyone going through what I do. It helps keep the pressure off my family, so they don't become burdened acting like make shift therapists. These apps keep me sane. I use them often.

You are never alone. People here can relate to you and what your going through. And help is close at hand.

I hope you feel better soon. May the goddess bless you.
