One Year Anniversary of the Orphan Handbook!

Hey guys. I'm sure we have realize yet again how difficult the Holidays are. People with parents seem to just disappear. I had a friend say he was gonna visit me on Thanksgiving week and he never showed up. Other friends who used to text me are no where to be found. Even one of my bosses is home sick with her mom. Gosh I would love to be 50 years old and get to stay home sick with my mom.

I hoping things we get easier in January. Just three weeks away. Untill then I will continue to enjoy movies from the library and home cooked meals with my dog. I'm still having panic attacks and chest pains at work. I hope things get better for all of us.

I have also have noticed a lot people are very busy with family and all that nice...."stuff". They say that Christmas and thanksgiving is all about family and FRIENDS... well i haven't once been invited to anyones place. No its family only. :P One of my friends has kind of stopped texting me and i thought it was cause she grew tried of me but come to find out that she is busy with family stuff. Do others even think about how i am feeling about the holidays? Maybe i would like to do something too but because i don't have a family i have to be left out of the fun that makes it wonderful? Frankly i do not know how to get beyond that thought. Anyone have ideas how not to feel lonely and left out for a month?

i have a question - is it hard to trust people if they change their opinions about you? if someone's nasty then warm to you, how do you feel about them? also, how easy is it to let ppl in? thanks, you're blog is so enlightening!

I just found this blog today, and I have to tell you I'm so glad I did! My situation is similar to yours. My mother died when I was in my late teens, my dad was never around and I have no siblings. You answer some questions I've always wanted to ask someone but haven't for fear of seeming either unfeeling or incompetent. People who don't live with this reality don't really get it. It's also a relief to know there are at least a few out there who understand why the holidays are a chore rather than a pleasure for me-without automatically assuming it's because I'm just a scrooge or something. Congratulations on your one year anniversary and please keep up the good work!
