I don't have your condition but can certainly relate to the loneliness at home. I work full-time, so that time is okay. But evenings and weekends are long for me. I feel like there should be more to life- like I am just waiting it out. I am due to retire soon- and very scared about what that will be like for me.

Hi, LG. I have a facial neuralgia and feel like I lost everything because of it. I haven't been able to work in years, I don't have any family and I don't have any friends anymore because all my friends were through work. I can't go anywhere, because I can't drive due to the medications I take. My marriage was not good to start with, and has pretty much ended since I got sick. I sit alone in my house all day, too. It's very hard, and I'm very lonely. I try to stay in touch with the world via the internet, and I have hobbies. Sometimes that helps. But I'm so lonely that it's often difficult to convince myself to get out of bed in the morning.
