I must emphasise that I'm not saying it's easy. I was coming from a very low point at first and it took a huge effort to get out and about, so I do understand how hard it is. I used to get home and cry. At first I was very angry with my ex for putting me in that situation of having to take huge chances making new friends. You quickly learn who is most like you and likes the things you enjoy.
If you simply can't physically go out, then that is very difficult and I'm sorry for anyone in that position. Perhaps call the WRVS and Age UK for starters.
Lean on GN friends too for support when you're feeling alone. There's always a GNetter who will listen and respond. There is even a thread for people awake in the night and feeling lonely too. We sometimes have to dig very deep and find the resolve to just do it.
