Calling for friends/support people

Thursday, July 11, 2013

I am looking for friends. I am a shy person, so it's not easy for me. I'd like to find others who are older/retired and who have some of my same interests. I spend time gardening, reading, doing church work, cooking healthy stuff. I'm vegetarian. I have a grown son and daughter-in-law in Florida and 2 grand daughters in Alabama, the girls of my older son whom I lost in 2006. I live in the Brazos Valley in Texas since 2005. I am a retired RN since Feb. I have a house in the woods on 1/2 acre and live here with my dog Sally who is Jack Russel terrier/Beagle mix. She is 11 yrs old but still acts like a puppy at times. She loves running through the woods, chasing anything that moves and getting into trouble. I am trying to get rid of the last 10 pounds of the 15 I gained since I moved to Texas 8 yrs ago. I lost 10 since Jan 1 and now want to drop the rest. I use Jorge Cruise's program. Low carb/sugar seems to work well for me. Please write. Thanks, Mary

    Hi Mary,

When I first started on SP I was crazy shy and would read the message boards but didn't comment or blog. I was scared to put myself out there when I was already feeling pretty vulnerable. Reaching out is a great first step!

Blogs can get lost on here though so make sure you stop by the message boards and teams that have some similar interests.

    Hi Mary,

I am not sure I fit what you're looking for in a friend and yet here I am commenting .. you never know where you might find a new friend .. maybe the next turn in the road if you are open to the experience..

I understand being shy makes it hard and just posting this wasn't easy.. Their are others like you out here .. and they will find you ..

Best wishes on your journey and search for a friend..

    Hi, Mary. I don't fit your description but I felt compelled to comment anyway. You sound like a sweet soul, and I pray that you meet some wonderful people with similar interests/lifestyles. Best wishes for you. emoticon
