I am completely alone. My family abandoned me decades ago (for freudian reasons) and although live within 15 and 30 minutes of me have not spoken to me un tears. I just had my 12th brain surgery related to a severe facial pain disorder and not one of my siblings was there for even one of them. Because of the pain I have not been able to work for 40 yrs and without work and family iy is almost impossible to make friends. In addition I never married so I have none of the things to talk about that helps to foster friendships when you do meet people. Because of my pain I cannot go to classes etc. I do go to the Y for a class and go out to lunch once a week with 2 -3 of the people form the class. U thght we were friends or at least friendly and not even they have called to ask how I am and did the surgery go well.
I have one relative who braved the others to seek me out years ago but he is on other side of country. He used to email me daily but now I am lucky (and I am lucky with this relationship) if he emails 2 x a week. One other friend until the hurricane and he is in Fla. emailed 1 - 2x a day but again he is many states away from me.
I am truly alone in the world. I have to wonder how many other folks are like me competely alone in their homes or apartments and no way to connect with the world. Thanks.
(not sure if this posted 2x if so I apologize)
