(Pretend that this is an actual ad in a newspaper. Like the old dating ads, minus the dating and the online craziness. Wait, we are online...yeek. Hope this goes well.)
I am looking for a friend. I am not looking for a dating partner, I am looking for a friend. Not just a friend online, but a person to actually speak with on the phone. I am glad to have Phoenix Rising, but it would be really nice to touch base with another human who is also dealing with CFS and Fibro and not just on the net. I have done the whole email thing, but it's really not the same.
I don't "need" to talk to someone all of the time, but it would be nice to touch base. Do you need a friend?
I would love to have another CFS friend who is single. It would be really nice to talk about what it is like to live alone and deal with a chronic illness. It's a whole different world then when someone is married, although you can be just as isolated while being married too.
Having CFS is isolating and I need people in my life that I can talk to and that speak my language. I am 40, I like music and I like talking about other things than just CFS. I think that is somewhat important to talk about things one likes or who you are, not just as an ill person. You don't have to like music, but I want to talk about positive things too.
If this is something that seems worth trying, please be in touch. No worries on a constant calling companion as I am not a person who loves the phone. But a CFS phone mate that blooms into a friendship would be really nice.
I have too many well people in my life and I am sick of the facade. I want someone that I can open up to about what it is like being ill and they won't judge me.
Private message me if you are interested. And....no weirdos. If you know you are really weird, don't respond.
I understand completely that many will not want to do this and that's ok. It's just a thought that life anymore is way too virtual.
