I am new to this group. Its almost 2 am where I am and I am unable to sleep at all. I was laying in bed thinking about how lonely I felt. I am going through a divorce and we have been seperated for 7 months. I moved back home for a little while and realized I really didn't want to live there anymore or that area. So I up and moved to a whole new state where I don't know a soul. I sort of wanted to start all over again. I knew it would be hard. And I have only been here a little over two weeks. But I just feel extremely lonely. I know a lot of of it is the pain from my divorce. But I just feel like I will be alone forever. I know it is going to take time to get out there and meet people and make friends. But I feel like I don't even know how to do that now. I have some friends but they all live far away and all over. I don't know how to kick this feeling of deep pain and lonliness. Some days aren't so bad but tonight. I just have been crying and just feeling really down about it. I guess I am sort of venting about it. Have any of you been in my situation? How did you make friends or get yourself out there again. I just feel really isolated.
