Hey there -
I really admire your spirit. You must be the one person who knows how lonely I am :-(
I used to live with my boyfriend, but he was terrible and I was disowned by my family and lost all my friends. Then he he had a brain aneurysm. I was homeless for awhile, but got my life together and even got another 6 figure job. I got a great apartment in a terrible neighborhood and it seemed like my life was getting back on track. (I have huge amounts of debt because of all this)
Then my ex went into a coma; he passed in May. I lost my job in June. My job was my primary social outlet. I’m sure you know how hard it is to meet people at our age. Now I can’t get a job and I have about a month left in my apartment and no one to talk to about my stress and loneliness - or even what the hell I am going to do?!?
May I call you sometime? It would be really nice for me and at least I can still laugh at myself, so it might not be a total bummer for you. You probably have more karma points than anyone ever needs, but maybe a few more wouldn’t hurt?
Anyway, thanks. It seems you are a lot less lonely these days and that’s inspirational.
