There's a lot more to fixing this feeling than just being around other people. For me its a deep seated reality. I have lost many friends over the years... Some to accidents my best friend from High School was killed in a car crash in 1989 when I was 26. I moved around a lot with my parents and I lost contact with many people... In 2012 I lost another really close friend to Cancer.... These losses took their toll.... I have been married twice and went through those losses at great cost to my well being. I didn't see my daughter for 4 years. My family is now scattered all over the map and I feel very out of touch with them. The sadness is starting to creep in as I get older and the chance of meeting someone whom I can have a strong loving relationship is dwindling... This now is more of a problem than my anxiety. I fact I think my anxiety is closely tuned to my loneliness... It might even be the cause... I can see how this could take all of ones hope and crush it out. I feel that way now....
