Freedom is great ... although a bit lonely maybe. But the little waves of loneliness are so much better than the raging storm of awfulness. I hope you enjoy the spring weather! (Itís on its way...)

I had what you had....no fever but body aches & a ciugh that lasted a monthbeven with musinex. Yes, a virus but the flu is a virus akso, bacterial infections end up beinfmg complications of the flu. My friend is a PA & I was at her house, farmvsittjng for her ehen I got sick. She disgnosed me when they got home. Nothing like having a private physician. Lol she even made a house call for a friend & neighbor who had the same thing I did but turned into pneumonia for her. That is probably their real concern for your friend. When the immune system is low, pneumonia happens easily

I am not feeling any more loneliness than I felt while with him. We sat in different rooms watching TV. We didnít have much to say to each other, even in good times. I have felt so lonely for twenty years. I stayed home because of our kids. We are the most boring people, just watched TV. So, when I am sitting here alone watching TV, whatís the difference?

At least I found this little world here on PC and reached out to people. He never interacted with others. He would read news stories on his iPhone. Well, he used to play these games online where he had to scramble words. He was ranked #1 in the world for high score on that. Heís very smart. Then he got into the game Name Da Flag, and he knows every flag from every country. But mostly, he does not interact with people. He doesnít even interact with our kids.

At least now that we are separated, he is spending a lot of quality time with our sons.

Are you sure he is not ASD? Siunds very similar to what I luved with way too long. My career was the only thing that gave me the ability to stay initially then I was trapped financially. Not a good place to be

You may be right on about him. Too bad no professional ever picked up on it and helped us.

Yes, prifessionals sermed to have a hard time pucking it up in the older age groups. It wasn't diagnosed in the US until 1994.

It is interestjng because everything my (our) psychologist wrote about him to the IRS & for dis disability request all fit PERFECT with an ASD dx but they never came up with it though our pdoc told him & told the IRS that he had something mire wrong with him than JUST adult ADD & that he had suggested that he go to a neuroligist after I told him everything he had done, but H refused. Like if he ignores it, it win't be real.
