> I think the loneliness thing is hard to beat (but possible)...it's an internal thing...less connected to if we're actually lonely, more connected to how we feel about ourselves. That's how it seems to me anyway.

LG,

Excellent point about lonliness being an internal thing, about how we feel about ourselves. I know I'm the most lonely when my confidence/self-esteem is very low (and it ain't ever high!). I think that's why I stuggle so much with trying to achieve external things, 'cause I feel so inadequate on the inside. It's like I never feel good enough and keep striving, striving.

I don't think this is uncommon with a lot us, unfortuantely. Therapy is helping, slowly, but helping.

I hope you are feeling better and remember you are not alone no matter where you are geographically. We're all "close by."
