Hello, I'm unfortunately in a backslide lately and have almost no one to talk to. I'm single and my mom and dad both died last year, and I've lost most of my friends over the years from the stress of chronic illness. I have a counselor but I can only afford so much of that and lately, I can tell she even tires of hearing about the stresses of chronic illness. I can tell that I physically feel better when I don't feel so alone, but I have no idea where to find someone to just talk to, cry to about how hard and painful this is. And scary. Are there any resources out there? I do better speaking to someone versus emailing or texting. Sometimes those modes of communication make me feel even more alone because I can't really express myself in real time. Thanks.
