    Hi @maggiereckless1
    Welcome to the community! Have you tried looking around the area/online/newspaper to see if there are any local groups or clubs you might be interested in? :)

    Hi @maggiereckless1 and welcome to the community! I hope you're able to make friends on the community or find local groups. Do you work at all? You could always try to establish friendships there :)

    Hello @maggiereckless1 Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry to hear your not too good. All I can say we are here to help and give you any support we can.

    Reading your post. Sorry what has happened . Understanding why when meeting new people. It is never easy and difficult.

    I can only say we as a community never judge any body. You are among friends here.

    Have a suggestion have you looked at your local community centre or even health centre or Doctors. Often have community groups on.

    I hope I can give you some reassurance it is finding the right contacts and support. Another for me. I have mental health, disabilities was volunteering. If you feel like doing that.

    I have trouble mixing. Have deafness as well. So found my volunteering helps.

    Please take care. We as a community are here to listen.
