Lonely. Are ALL my friends imaginary?

by ComicBookMom on July 15, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It occurred to me that I haven't had lunch or coffee or a real heart to heart with anyone other than my husband and family in MONTHS. I've had cheerful chats with the folks at the dog park, but nothing that would go outside the fence. my best friend is the guy I married. my best girlfriend from college lives two hours away and we rarely see each other... busy lives. Suddenly, I feel very lonely.
