Our pasts are different.

But we're both disabled.

And I'm stuck in a tiny little town where I spent my adolescence -- but my friends here are long gone. Even their parents have left, meaning there's no chance of even bumping into an old friend while they're visiting family.

My computer is essentially my best friend.

Those friends that I do have are far away and phone calls just don't fill that friend-shaped hole. Neither does the internet, to be honest, but it's all I have. We all make do, I guess.

So welcome to the forums; you and I might be somewhat kindred spirits.

I kinda-sorta started reading here after Mordant came here, so I kinda-sorta feel like I know you, even though we never really interacted at all over at the other place. I love your wit!

I have some pretty decent friends here in Dallas (even if they are my seniors by quite a ways), but I live in a freaking HUGE city! Having grown up almost exclusively in towns that had generally less than 200 populations, I feel your pain though.

Welcome bible-belter.

Today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be even better.

meh ...Bible is still a proper noun I think, but my grammar and spelling are atrocious enough as it is, so no worries when my fingers have a mind of their own around keyboards.

RE: yet another Bible-belter
Welcome! I do understand about the lack of friends local to you. I spent so much time traveling for work and commuting to work that I have a small handful of friends. I'm working on that, but it ain't easy. I go to the local senior center, but it's really like hanging out with my parent's friends, since they are so much older (I'm 64, the next youngest is about 74, except for one guy who is one year older than I. We are hitting it off, so that's good).

Welcome, thanks for sharing your story Smile

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Hear ya ...I'm only half-considering the local senior center; pretty well all of my friends these days are retirees. I don't know what's worse, having older friends, or people not noticing that I'm so much younger. Gasp
