It seems that my closest friends are the people I work with. I have a small circle of friends from there. We get together for birthdays and celebrations by going to the casino together. During the summer months when we're off from work, we'll get together for lunch before having to go back to work in August. When I was in the hospital last month, every one of them called me on a daily basis to check on me. If we're not calling then we text.
the majority of my friends outside of work have moved away. I have one close girfriend and one close guy friend. we all know each other so it's not uncommon for all of us to get together once in awhile.
my plan is to start going to health related workshops for the purpose of learning and for making new friends.
One day, I'll meet a lot of the CM'ers who I talk to on a regular basis. As long as talk by phone you'll never be that far away!
this is a great topic Mike!
