My Mood: Realizing that I have no one

Default Realizing that I have no one

I'm currently recovering from a knee surgery. This time of immobility and boredom makes me realize how depressing my situation is. I have no one taking care of me, only few people actually inquiring about the surgery and how I'm doing. I feel alone and hopeless. It seems impossible for me to form meaningful relationships and live a normal life. I have to go through everything alone. Why is it so hard to make friends?

I understand very well. I had felt the same way while going through my (hopefully) last round of chemo. All my family lives in another continent and it is so very hard to make friends (the reasons are endless).
Stay strong, share with us. you can always message me if you need support. Health problems can take a huge toll on you, to a point it temporarily changes your personality. If it makes you feel better, I will tell you one thing: this experience, while making you very exhausted, is also making you a more resilient person. You will see it in few years. I promise you.

Hi MountainBoy—
It’s difficult making friends, but just starting with talking with people helps.
On the other hand, if you’re stuck at home unable to freaking move then you get the added pleasure of going stir crazy with cabin fever in complete solitude. That right there is a recipe for depression that no amount of TV or RPG can fix...
Anyway, there are some very smart people on these boards—certainly smarter than I am...and what they say might actually be helpful and useful.
