Try some senior groups or try senior centers if you are old enough the one here starts at 55 yrs old but some at 62 in the next town over, contact your disability office see if there is events you can attend or try meetup.com groups, if that church does not suit you go to another i am sure there is one that would be there for you. I do know how you feel i am somewhat disabled with fibromyalgia, depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety these did not help in my marriage might had been some of the cause of the divorce. He wanted me to work full time so he had more money to spend but he was a jerk anyway. Since divorce my symptoms have gotten worse too. Now i am focusing on mostly finding inner peace, trying to lose some weight, and if there is some meetups or events i will go to them also. I will go even if i feel bad so i get out of the house and not be a hermit so much. I find praying and asking for my guides to help helps me especially in the hard times.
In Response to Re: A Circle of Friends:
I am not divorced yet, but have been separated for over 1.5 years. Married 39 years. I have Multiple Sclerosis since 1974 and have done well with it until the past year. Probably the stress from the separation has caused some relapse of symptoms. I have no family, no children, and no friends. My two best friends have died in the past 3 years. I feel so depressed over this and don't know how to make friends. I don't have the energy to go to "groups" which is a good idea, just can't make it with my MS. I tend to sleep in the afternoon/evening when it is hot (live in Texas) and stay up most of the night. Not really a good situation for trying to attend groups. I have thought about attending a church, but tried that several years ago when I was thinking that my husband and I were going to separate, but a lone woman attending church (geared more toward family) doesn't get much attention from other church goers. At least that was my siltuation. I am not outgoing or gregarious, so I have a hard time meeting new people. Most people my age are into grand children, which I do not have. It is a very difficult situation that I don't have a solution for. Any feedback would be much appreciated. I feel so alone, should have a good supoort system by now, but it is not the case. I am so afraid that I am goimg to have a "problem" with my MS and no one to turn too. I always think of my friend that I lost about 7 months ago. She was my "go to" friend and I miss her so much. Funny how life can turn out. I was a Registered Nurse for over 35 years, many work friends, but they have all disappeared since I have been on disability for the last 4 years. I really have a deperssing situation and can't see a way out. Help would be so wonderful. Thanks for listening.
