Alot of us are making life changes and have ended up in new situations without support or friends. I just wanted to share my experience and hope it helps someone here find support/friends. I was feeling so lonely and complaining about not having friends to talk to or hang out with. I finally decided one day that I was going to do whatever it took to form a new circle of friends. Since I live in an apt complex and go to the pool with my kids it was very easy to start talking to others. In one week I have found 5 single moms with 9 kids and am in the process (with the apt complex's support) of forming a single moms group with monthly meetings. This has been the best thing to happen for me. We are going to be meeting monthly and having fun activities. As it is now we are meeting almost daily at the pool just to chat while our kids enjoy swimming. So, if you are lonely like I was and live in an apt go to the pool and just strke up conversation with someone. Before you know it you'll have a group of people and you'll feel less lonely. It turns out all of the women I met were feeling just like me and hoping to meet new friends. It just took someone to start the conversation. I hope this helps someone else get started doing this. It's really great to be surrounded by friends who know what I'm feeling.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
