Well, I am battling a few serious disorders, and I am missing even a friend or family member to be by my side. I understand I cannot ask full support from anyone, nor will I, but I lack having a friend to talk to after a rough day, or after I not so great dr. appointment. I am not anti-social, I am friendly with many people; however, with all the battles going on, I do not know how to handle everything alone.
I have a quote that I feel applies to this situation: "The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them." –Ernest Hemingway
Yeah, you can't really expect someone to be there for you through everything, but people are a lot more willing to help than you might think, at least from my experience. Just pick someone you want to be closer with and start letting them know things a bit at a time.
