Finding Friendship!

A few years ago when my agoraphobia was at it's very demonic worst I remember sitting in my house all alone and thinking that this was it, I didn't know anyone and no one knew me, I really thought that I would never have another friend (other than Paul) Then circumstance brought me a computer, the internet and from that day my life changed beyond belief, finally I could speak to people in the outside world without panic.


The internet in all it's glory lead me to discover card-making, scrapbooking and then forums and really that was the beginning of my life as it is now.  I have met some wonderful people and just today 2 of my  online friends spent an actual afternoon at my house enjoying lots of cake and even more laughter.

I'm so thankful for the internet and even with all the bad stuff which exists on the WWW I'm truly thankful for it, it's changed every facet of my life, I have great friends, I have a wonderous online job, who knew that you could even have a job where you don't have to leave the house!!

I've had such a great afternoon with my friends and I know that I'll never ever be in the position again that I was a few years ago.

Today think about the reasons you love your online life so much and be thankful for all that is WWW!

Mandy just read this post.

I am pleased that things are good for you, I hoped that the same would happen for me but no.

It just proves that it's the person you are that makes the friends, which you have done via the internet. I'm unable to even do that.

I wish you all the best.

Oh gosh Anonymous, I feel you must know me and I wish that you had left your name, I really feel for you, if you know me, please email me so we can talk, I can't pop my finger on who you are. If I don't know you then I'm so sorry that you are in pain emotionally and if you need a friend this is a pretty good place to start!
