    Moving forward can mean leaving the past behind. We’ve come so far and yet we still have so much to learn. What is something helpful you’ve learned?

    Missing Friendship - Can anybody relate?

    Feeling a bit lonely today guys, can anyone advise? ❤

    Probably like a few of you on here lots of my 'friends' abandoned me 2 1/2 years ago when I got sick.

    I tried to stay positive as I had 3 separate girls who I thought were 'keepers' I've been hearing less and less replies from them over the past 6 months.

    Yesterday I messaged all 3, and none have replied. I feel even more lonely then before I messaged them.

    There's nothing worse than feeling alone, when having friends is something you want.

    I don't even know where to find anybody new. I find myself talking too much to anyone now doctors, nurses etc. Just because I don't have anybody else. It hurts.

    What is worse is that it's my 'best friends' and my 10 year anniversary since we met this month, we were literally so close this is something we would have celebrated. she doesn't seem interested. She was like my family but seems to have moved on with new friends, as she's moved to another nearby town.

    When she does message me im always hearing about a 'friend' when I ask what she's been up to.

    Messages used to be often but now it's always 'sorry I didn't realise I didn't reply' or 'sorry I didn't send a reply i typed' or 'I completely forgot to reply' daily now. Where she's obviously messaging others and forgets about me.

    I just feel at such a loss. I'm lucky to have an amazing husband but it's not the same as girl time.

    Can anybody else relate? Sorry for rant. Happy Sunday everybody lots of love xx

    I don't understand

    Why can't we take our own life if we are miserable and there's no hope in sight? Death with dignity is no different but mental isn't respected same as physical. Covid stole my Grammy a year ago tomorrow and I wish I was with her . she was all I had. I'm so tired of being so sad and alone... Why doesn't anyone care

    Another flare up another job

    This is my first time reaching out. I was diagnosed 5 years ago. I have gone through many medications. I have formed allergies to most of the steroids. Covid has caused me to become immune to #Humira . I lost my job yesterday. I am going in for infusion on Tuesday for skyrizi. Hoping this begins to turn things around. I'm not really sure what to do for work going forward. I have lost 2 jobs after having 2 major flare ups after getting covid. I can get boosted, wear masks wash my hands. I have still gotten it twice. Effecting my crohns and other major health issues. Anyone have some ideas for working from home. I was a materials and planning manager for 25 years

    Would you like to help me?

    I want to record a podcast episode about the negative impacts the COVID lockdowns in 2020 had on people on the autism spectrum. If you’re someone on the spectrum who had very negative experiences you feel was related to your autism, would you mind sharing your story in the comments section so I can consider sharing it on the podcast? (you’d be anonymous of course). If you’d prefer to send me a private message of your story, you can do that too. I want to spread some awareness for this. #Autism
