Good morning Camerarderie, loneliness is a terrible situation to be in, you can be lonely in a crowded room it doesn't have to be in the middle of a bleak dark wilderness, I know exactly your feelings , my first experience of intense loneliness was shortly after learning I had PD when I told my family they were
completely baffled and had no idea of the struggles ahead . I am very lucky ,I have a very supportive clan of Family and Friends who will do anything for me,
but I insist at times that I must do my own thing as my confidence soon goes down hill fast if I lean on others too much,I know this might sound a bit of a contradiction but you have to be lonely in order to deal with the symptoms of loneliness , how many really good friends can you call upon , do you have family members who are compassionate and caring ,an you access any local self help groups
this last suggestion is a good one, I belong to a group called Disabled friends, you don't have to be PD afflicted anyone with any kind of disability can join it is very rewarding , we share our problems, help each other with all sorts of
difficulties ,have trips away for the day, its good and when you get to know everyone the camaraderie element becomes apparent, I would also say that there are many people on this forum , people who I have never met, but who I count among my closest friends , do keep in contact with this forum they can answer so many of your problems and can always be relied upon, we are here to help , if you wish to , you can contact me ,my E mail address is available.
You will be in my thoughts, Kindest Regards
