Recently I read that people who live alone are more likely to be in poor health and to die younger than those who live with another.
I think that I have been lonely for most of my life. Illness has exacerabated it. This is a scary thought. Not always easy to remedy.
It is harder to rectify if you don't drive. People rarely offer lifts and so the loneliness goes on. The too hard basket.
Where has the hand of kindness gone? Looking out for others. I don't see any evidence of it. A sad commentary on our society.
