I am 48 years old with a six-year-old son. I was married, but got divorced about 5 years ago. My ex moved out of the state, as soon as we filed for divorce, and has no intention to be in my son's life. Except my son, I don't have any family here, since I am from Japan, and all of my families are in Japan. I have friends, but have never developed very close friendships since I moved to the U.S. 10 years ago. I feel lonely, and it gets worse every night, after I put my son to sleep. I have no visitors, and can't go out. I need to be strong, for I am only family for my son. But everyday, I feel lonelier and lonelier.
