I hate being alone
but I feel so different
not fitting in
understanding the lingo
caring about what everyone else cares about
and I don't
seems so trivial
compared with what I deal with
I feel out of it
missing cues
missing jokes
nothing in common
why do I bother
back to my books
back to my issues
my recovery
isolate my self from the awkwardness
and uncomfortable
feel lonely

Hmmmm I knew we talked allot but I didn't know I was sending my brain waves to you too!!! I feel that way allot!

Sorry you're feeling lonely right now man! I feel your poem. I feel that way allot myself. Everyone around me talking about things that I just don't relate to at all. Everyone babbling about the newest episode of this or that and I just have no interest. Especially when it comes to my wifes family. Not a danged thing in common with any of them.

You may not be able to reach out there, but reach out here. I'm here for ya! I know, I understand. We have that and much more in common. Including that desire to withdraw and isolate. I'm learning there is a better way, and you're one of those here that has been teaching me that!

Hopefully my brainwaves can send you this hug here (((((Roger))))) I've got me arms wrapped around you in my heart here. I think I'll hold on for awhile. Hope you can feel it all the way out there in Washington!

I Love you Roger!

"Loneliness is a crowded room, full of broken hearts, turned to stone, all together, all alone"

words from a song close to my heart by Roxy Music called "Dance Away"

Felt that way the first time I entered chat here
But there was someone in there who confused the heck out of me named "Elisha1"
Friendly & open & quick to put me at ease

Loneliness is still my oldest & "worst friend"
Made more bearable by knowing I aint so alone

Look what you started here R

The comment about retreating to the books hits me hard. That was my refuge for years - pretending that life could be all about the high-profile life of the university.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.

i know EXACTLY how you feel, freedom49.

sometimes it feels like i am talking to myself.
i can't connect and so feel like slinking away to the comfort and safety and privacy of my hidey hole.

the only problem is,
there is no comfort or safety or privacy.
