I have had a lot of company lately and today everyone left and my daughter has gone on a trip and this is the first time I have been all alone in 3 years and it just hasn't really hit me yet? My husband is working and as you know I have been working at home but haven't been able to too much because of the company and now I just don't feel like getting on the phone at all I just want to do all my on line jobs today and it just feels strange to be alone all except for the cats they are here he he he l.o.l. BUt anyway they are sleeping but anyway once again I know I will be scared later when it turns dark have you ever been in a situation like this? What do you do?

I used to be alone and it is not familiar with me when someone is gonna left me. I'm the only one child my parents had so when they left the house because of work me and my dogs are the left. When I have my own family I only have 2 daughters when my husband left and even with the kids are in school I'm again the one who is left in the house. And now I'm separated with my husband my eldest daughter has her own family, me and my youngest who are only living together then still I don't have the choice that if she is at school I'm alone again hehehe. That's the way I used to be.

Well, I live alone. I don't go out on weekends, I just stay home and watch TV or check the internet. I really don't have any problems being alone. But it's different when I'm down or depressed, I always call my mom and tell her why I'm feeling that way. And if I can't take it anymore, I book a flight home. I'd say, I can't really function well without my family when I feel blue.

Perhaps your current sad loneliness you're doing, and on one side I can understand. But you want to know exactly what I feel when I'm alone? Sure, I'd be happy, you must know that unfortunately, 90% of my problems have always been caused by other people. Currently I have problems at home with my family, I still hope that they will be resolved soon. Have you ever thought, in addition to melancholy, if you try some advantage in the solitary life?

I'm sorry to hear you are sad. I spend a lot of time alone. We don't have kids and the animals don't say much. I usually read a book, clean house, watch tv or do laundry. I hate the chore of doing laundry and clean so believe me they are my last 2 options. I don't normally get scared at home alone. Only if I hear a lot of screaming and yelling by kids racing through the streets. The kids around here are hello raiser if you ask me. New they make the news regular basis for crime. Best Wishes!

Thanks Here is normally pretty quiet I guess I just get scared because I watch a lot of crime shows like Criminal Mids, Investagation discovery or whatever that is i.d channel And here on my street it gets so dark! My friend always says when she comes to visit I am leaving your house befor it gets dark because it is IS dark and she said D..m! Your street has to be the darkest around the neighborhood! L.O.L. But anyway sorry to hear about the kids in your neighborhood!

I wish I had some advice to help you get through this but I don't. Since I enjoy being alone I'm not the one to really advise. So you work at home too. I am a work at home agent. I also pick up assignments online. I have those days to where I'd rather not speak to anyone and type my report. Answering the phones do pay alot more though. So I just have to suck it up and put a smile on my face..Hello! Try not to worry yourself too much. Make sure your doors are locked, and light a candle aromatherapy helps me to relax. Bake some cookies..yum

He he Yeah I work at home for at&t I just set appointments and the guy from the office called me earlier because he hasn't heard from me but I told him that I had my phone stolen over the weekend and had to go to several different stores to find one and just backtracking my steps at the last place I had it it was like a nightmare! Me and my mom went to so many Wal Marts. T mobile and then finally I got one at Target and they only had 4 left. Thank God I found one! The t mobile people told me to save my upgrade and to avoid paying less it would be better to get it from wal mart ot target so the phone only costs me $30.oo! woo hoo! O and yes cookies! Yummy! Thanks and have a great day!

I would would just keep myself occupied and not think of the dark and being alone. I know it's easier said than done, but what I do is bake something or do the laundry, etc and it helps keeping busy. Watch a movie sounds fine as well. I hope you can relax and not worry about being alone at night.

Sometimes it is good to be alone, and have that feeling of being alone too. It reminds you of the vulnerability you have as a single human being and how much we all rely on human contact on a day to day basis. If your thoughts get too crazy of being alone, just make it a day for yourself or keep yourself busy. Go to a spa, movies, do the laundry, watch a tv show...all these will pass the time. Go out in the afternoon and bring a nice dinner home for yourself so that you can enjoy it and read a nice book or do some mylotting when it comes to nighttime.

Thanks that all sounds like very good ideals! I just can't go out I have no car and last week I was going to take the bus to go to an interview and I had some problems with my foot so I was unfortunately not able to make it. My husband didn't even know about it but he told me he didn't want me to work until I got another car, so me an my mother had drove to see how far of a walk it would have been and there was no way! I would have had to walk down several dark streets and through a park where no one is hardly around and being now that I have to go to doctor for my foot it just wouldn't have worked for me, It is swollen on the bottom of my foot and I called my moms foot doctor and he told me to stay off of it until I could get there the problem is that he is only there Tuesday, Thursday 2-4? And the other problem is the $ but my husband told me to go sometime and he would help me but I just don't know when? BUt I could clean and watch some movies. Thanks and have a great day.
