lonely and frightened

I should be old enough at 70 to accept that I must find recovery within myself not in

other people. But it has been a cold long lonely day and I long for people to

fill the gap so I can hide from the pain inside. Hopefully sharing this will help other

people as well as me feel that they are not alone.
