Very lonely

I'm 70. I have mental health issues. I just sit here all day mostly watching TV. I tend the garden. Have 2 cats and a dog I Hoover etc. But I've become agrophobic and don't like going out as I get panic attacks. I wish I could make friends with someone on here who is lonely too each day. I have two grown children who see me when they can but when they go I feel even more lonely . I don't like my own company. I am female but happy to get to chat with anyone on here. I don't have any friends due to my illness.

Welcome baston I think we all get a little bit lonely at times so I m sure everyone will understand I don’t have the problems you have and I get out and about with friends a lot but I still have times when I feel it’s all slipping past rather fast and I m standing still watching it go
