I have been out of work for several years, “retired” by MS. I live in a rural area where there is no access to public transportation, and I don’t drive. What is making my most crazy, depressed and restless is boredom and isolation. I am essentially stuck in the house. The only way I get out is to hire a driver, or hope that some “friend,” will come pick me up to go do something (a movie, dinner, etc.). I don’t appear to have any friends, tho maybe it’s just the fact that I need a ride to and from that turns people off. How do you deal with this kind of isolation?
