I contrasted lonely versus alone in a post a year or two ago.  People don't understand there is a world of difference between the two.

Re: CCT,

People engrossed in a world that they've created around a single relationship are surely going to be floundering sooner or later! 

When you were caring for someone, you needed more than ordinary support for your own emotional needs, no doubt, and as you say, other people stay away perhaps because they don't want to interact with sick person, or with the one who is doing what they feel guilty about not doing. 

It can be difficult, especially in the throes of emotional exhaustion, to be the one who calls and says hello, and maybe even says, "I need you."

Well being a bit-- It is said that most folk want to spend time with those who have'nt any to spare. Sometimes some folk become so engrossed in their own little world and when it disintegrates, there are left floundering. A time I felt real loneliness was when I was caring for someone and I would wait anxiously for some one just to call and say Hello.

Of course no one came as no one wants to see the future sadness that may await them one day.

Really good post.  Really big difference between loneliness and solitude.  I have been blessed in my lifetime with people who cared, and people who needed me.

after reading this I believe that for me, I am living the perfect life. I have reasons to get out of bed each day yet I can stay at home for I have company I am so happy with. both here and across the Internet.
