This is my first time logging into this group. Does it help ease loneliness?
Yes to a point. I can tell you how to deal with it, but trust me, i speak from experience it isn't easy to do.
How do you deal with it?
Quit thinking about it. Find things that occupy your time. Because the more you think about it the more it hurts.
Gutentag1 or you could use an app/web page called "Meet Up" to meet local people willing to come together & enjoy actives. Some are not free. But there's plenty of different actives to choose from
How are you doing today hun?
