I'd like to have a friend to go to outings with who understands my anxiety.

This is something I think about a lot. I am happily married, so I have one very good friend. I do have a fair number of Facebook friends, and I'm pretty frank about my emotions there, and I always get support. So I feel like those folks are more than just typical online acquaintances. But if I was having a crisis -- say, a major problem with my wife -- I can't think who among them I could call up.

I have one but we're quite different. We used to play football together (he stopped) same with table tennis. Plus he's moved so he's even further away so unless we both make an effort I can see it drifting away.

my stroke has made me realise I do have friends and family who do care. This last year I have made a lot of progress by exposing myself to situations rather than avoiding them . Now that I have stopped drinking pepsi max, after an 18 year addiction to it, I feel I am closer to the old me, shy but not nuts.

I have made changes to diet and the way I live that helps make it easier to face people, and even enjoy social interaction.
