Yes, I do need to find more friends, and it is very hard. At least now I have people to go to lunch with at work, since my office has moved to the first floor in my building.

I am in Weight Watchers, and have tried to make friends there, but sometimes people will quit coming and then that's that. A class would be good, though I'm not sure when I'd fit it in. Time, energy and motivation are the things that keep me from seeking out new friends. But, you're right, I really need to find some. I had dinner with a friend from college today and it was so good seeing her. We had a really good time together, and I'm hoping we can get together fairly often.

When I was in the hospital, the social worker there gave me the numbers for a couple of depression support groups in the area, but, naturally, I haven't called. As for my roommate - she tells me ALL the time that she wants me to tell her how I'm feeling, what's going on, etc., but clearly she can't take it - it's much too stressful for her. I seem to attract people like her every now and again, but had friends in Charlotte and friends in college like the one I saw today who can listen to me and not try to give me advice or fix things or whatever. Much healthier relationships. My roommate can be so intense at times - the friend I saw today even mentioned that - and it gets really tiring. I'm trying to just *let it go* and not read too much into her moods, words, expressions, body language, etc. But, it's really hard. And I feel a huge weight on my shoulders. I don't want to lose her, but it will be so much better when we're not living together anymore!

Sigh...I wish I was in school. Ready-made social circle.

Thanks for your kind words. You too are a wonderful caring person. I enjoy your posts and your friendship.
