For those of us who are mostly housebound, how do you handle the loneliness? It's starting to get to me. One of the worst parts of this disease has been the isolation. Losing all friends, losing family. Basically losing contact with everyone in your life. I have a few people I still talk to once in awhile, but they don't understand and act like I'm just annoying them if I call. I don't get to meet new people since I can't work or go to school. And being on the net is just not the same thing. Then I have the alternate problem of not feeling well around alot of people or socializing too long, so that makes it even harder to meet anyone. Anyone else suffering with the loneliness like I am?
