I Am Alone Too Much

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 122 People

    Lonely Loner

    My family and friends are often amazed and appalled at how much time I spend alone. It's like I live in prison, just without guards, other inmates and I'm free to come and go as I please. Just wanted to share. And I like the crow picture.

    Yes Sadly I Am

    When I say I am alone too much - I am not talking EP friends. I'm talking about friends I could actually have over. People who could see me, hear me, love me, hug me and know how much that meant just by looking in my eyes. It is definitely something that is not for the faint of...

    According to the CDC 5+ drinks in one night is too much. 15 drinks a week is heavy drinking. By that definition I have been an alcoholic for a very long time.
