Another lonely holiday season!

Iv e been doing all holidays by myself cause of having no family near me in Las Vegas. Now in Utah I'm close to my parents. They aren't doing anything so ill be alone again. Working NOC shift Xmas eve and Xmas so ill be doing that for XmasπŸŽ… No one likes me and I don't know why? Even 7 1/2 years sober my family seems more distant from me than before as an alcoholic! I'm so confused and sick of being always ALONE. It wouldn't be so hard if I had a dog! A dog would bring in so much joy and happiness but I'm trying my best to get therapy dog so my landlord can't say no pets! I'm getting a letter from doc stating I need one and see if I can get a dog then. I also have seizures so a dog would be great. I live in a community where most ppl have dogs so I hope to God ill be able to rescue one for Xmas and spend my life with my new best friend!!!! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with familyπŸ’—πŸŒΈπŸŒΊ Eat some turkey for meπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

I agree about dogs and animals in general! If I could surround myself with 100 dogs every day I would not be where I’m at right now. Dogs don’t judge and give unconditional love. Something a lot of humans lack in this world.

Hang in there. If you ever need to chat shoot me a message on here!

O I like you! And proud of you getting the job. I think you will be able to get that pupπŸ• I will be praying that you do

From what I've learned from your mother sounds like you be better off without her company even in holidays. But I can imagine how lonely it will be. Fill your mind on thoughts of getting that dog!

Awww thank you Jamie!! Your too sweet!! Yea I sure hope I can bring joy into my home by getting a dog! That's what I'm missing!! Its been a lonely life since my dog Cheyenne passed 7 years ago. My mom talks down to me a lot. Its like just cause I'm not rich like the rest of my family I get talked down too. Life has been nothing but pain and suffering and I just hope this next year will be better!?!?!?

Aww I understand how you feel, I've spent many alone. Why aren't your parents doing anything with you being so close now. You'd think they'd want to be with you more...life is too short! I sure have missed you! I love you so much! Peace, light, joy & hugs for you!
