I'm so sorry you're feeling so alone. It's hard to make new friends, especially when you're older. What saved me through my divorce three years ago (37 years together!), was AA and NA. You make so many friends in these 12-step groups. I've heard that there are similar self-help groups for people with depression and other mental illnesses. Look into it. I don't know where you are living, but if you're in a city, there's probably something. I realize it may seem like - why be around a bunch of depressed people talking about depression?- but there's something about sharing these issues that we tend to keep secret from others that is very empowering and brings people together.

After my divorce, I got two kittens from the animal rescue league. They are a delight and, unlike dogs, are so low maintenance. Enjoy your cat. I hope you are able to hook into a group of people and be less alone. Loneliness is the worst feeling of all.
