@catmom777 Glad you are here. It can be a place of support and learning. Loneliness and depression is a hurdle some of us face daily. I would that I had a way to take this from others as well as myself. Distraction can only go so far. Add health issues and it can be even more of a challenge. I also live alone. I have family close by and it doesn't help as everyone is busy and something more added is not well received. Be kind to yourself and do what you can to take care of your health.
