After being away with family for week away to Cornwall and now back home after 2 days it hits you again loneliness when they all back to doing their own things
@Mickyboy welcome back! But you had a great holiday? I thought you were living at your daughters? You should enjoy the peace for a few days
I think a lot of it is the adjustment. You get used to all the stimulation of a lot of other people, and then it seems real quiet when it goes away. You’ll get used to the “difference”, and then you won’t feel so lonely, I bet. Anyway, we’re here. Jeanne
@Mickyboy sorry to hear you’re feeling lonely. It does take some getting used to. I am on my own a lot as my husband has to work. some days its great other days I feel very lonely.
The trick for me is to occupy my time with something I enjoy. Difficult when you’re restricted by the stroke but I have foundca hew hobby of colouring by numbers which I enjoy.
Did I read something the other day about you being able to drive again? Perhaps take yourself out somewhere. The Stroke assocuation also have a buddy system that you could try. And of course this forum is great for reaching out.
Take good care of yourself x
