I was in recovery on narcotics & only one person checked in. The church didn't even notice I hadn't been there in a while. I had been attending a small group there for months. I hope you have someone you can talk to, even long distance.
Hey you are welcome to message me
Congrats for your recovery, this is such a huge step in your life my friend. I’m sorry you felt ignored. Sometimes it’s the one way to make things happen for you and only you. Be strong, be good to yourself and take one day at a time.
@janice-plattner What a huge step you've taken towards recovery, truly. How are you holding up? Would love to hear from you. It's been a while. 💛
I'm doing pretty well. I took the isolation very hard. Now, I've gotten used to it, but only get out of the house a couple of times a week, mostly errands, very little socially. Pretty pathetic, I think. Before covid I was going out socially 2-3 or more times a week and talking to friends & acquaintances. It looks like that won't pick up because i don't care to be around more than 10-12 at a time & my social groups get younger all the time. I'm 71 with a birthday coming up soon. Just describing my situation is distressing. Ignoring it and planning a future activity seems a better course of action. I organize a couple of women's groups which has a couple of activities per month, but they are not that satisfying. I've arranged a couple of meals with friends this week. It's a start.
