"The Power of Friendship"From the image below, please tell us how the power of friendship helps you maintain hope.
It took me some time to establish some socialization and it is limited in nature. I really have to choose what sort of social activities I do. I can go to a friend's house and play cards for example. I can invite people over for a fire. But going out to the bar, especially with a live band tends to be really pushing it. The last time I tried that migraine and tinnitus all night long and no sleep at all. What is important is the occasionally, at about once a month, I spend a little time with friends. Sometimes it is not much time if the pain gets to be too much, but sometimes I can manage it pretty well on a decent night.
And friends who understand I can't always do all the things they do all the time are pretty precious to me. Or understand I may have to leave early. Or may not be able to come out on a planned day. But they are important to me because that bit of socializing is important to get me out of the house, to break that since of isolation, to help with mood and to just have a good time with people I enjoy being around.
