    no one left anymore theyre all gone. no friends, no family, no partner just me, alone. hoping there are some folk on here who will understand and can help me cope with the emptiness, else the alternative is somewhat final. as an only child i never enjoyed my own company and i find all the loneliness intolerable. the thought of being alone and never findin the warmth and love with another is totally depressing. just wanna love and be loved, is that too much to ask? never experienced life alone before and it sucks. its been 4 months alone, pathetically short amount of time i know, and the silence is just deafening and cold. I dont want to leave this life prematurely but nor do i want to spend the rest of my time sad, alone and crying. Coming home every day to a cold empty house is just heartbreakin.

    been readin the posts on here, well the open access ones, for some months now and thought what the heck got nothing to lose. I know ultimately only I can help myself but havin some support, and givin some in return, from ppl in a similiar place has got to help cos them there doctors and therapists haven't a clue. how can someone counsel you when they've never experienced the sheer torment of life? just pat you on the head and send you on your way with pills or some jolly good advice and pull yourself together, and if you dont feel any better blah blah blah or the other one is if you can just hang-on (forgive the euphemism) a few more months we should be able to fit you in to see our therapist/counsellor, the waiting list is rather long dont you know. yep way to go society really taking care of the people in crisis!

    Oops sorry for the rant. hugs, love and warmth to everyone out there.

    I know it must be very difficult living alone I am on the other side I can have a thousand people around and I still feel lonely In the middle of a crowed room I have found my dog to be a great companion I tell him every thing and he loves with out judgment so maybe a dog or cat can help were you do not feel alone

    Thank you butterflytears, you are so right, i so miss my old boxer dog she was such a sweetheart. Unfortunately work wise im two months into a nine month full time contract so makes it difficult to keep a pet. However if i can keep goin until i retire i plan on havin a house full of dogs n cats for the company.

    It sounds like, for you, the pain of loneliness must be just as intense, even with ppl around you.

    There are a lot of great people here. Everyone is supportive and you can always find someone who has things as bad or worse than you.

    Like you, I'm alone. I hate it. I'm lucky that I have a cat. She keeps me alive.

    Byste
