Thank you for sharing your experience,


I am currently dealing with feeling VERY lonely and isolated.  I know no one here except my co-workers (who are busy with their own lives).  I have no good suggestions and am also looking to figure out a way to combat this.  Any suggestions you might have would help.  I live in Schaffhausen and am happy with the small town life because I can go anywhere if I want to be entertained.  Sandy
