Ya, but it is still difficult. I am 37, and have lost pretty much all of my former friends. They all mostly thought they where better, smarter, etc, then I. A former 'supposed best friend' just dumped me in the cold, left town and everything, and didn't even contact me about so. He was in grad school, and the only job he could get was at the 7-11, and I offered to help him get a job in the social service agency I worked at. But, he got accepted to do a 'Doctoral' program, then just bailed on me completely. He really stuck his nose up at me, like an elitist @sshole.
Another one told me I made him "..too stressed and depressed". He phoned me to directly tell me this!! Others just didn't seem to think I was "cool" anymore. (whatever that is..)
I've got a few guys at my job that I might start hanging out with. But, yes I am still a bit "bitter", and I know that is not healthy. It just seems that around the start of my depression, and treatment, all of this other stuff with these people started happening. You folks on here have been close to being my 'real' friends. Thanks for all of your support...
