Do you feel lonely because of social restraint?
I was just thinking of topics for this group and I got an email from Cure Magazine. This title is "Loneliness, Social Constraints"

I have recently been soul searching for reasons why, at times, I have felt isolated and lonely during my lung cancer journey. Is this imposed on me due to society's constraints or because of my preconceived notions about lung cancer, treatments, physicians, hospitals, medicine?
I felt very very embarrassed that I had lung cancer back in the late 1900's. People didn't hesitate to speak out in a negative, rather than supportive manner.
Have you felt like this at all? What have your experiences been? Has your family been supportive or have they expressed unrealistic expectations from the medical field? What have your expectations been that didn't turn out the way you wanted?
This is not about health insurance or legal problems.
