Well said. It helps so much to know that you're not the only one who goes through this!
The other thing I find is that when I do try to meet new ppl to socialize with, they tend to be 'fixers' looking for a project. It's soooooooooo obnoxious, as well as incredibly demoralizing to find out that it was their need for a project that they were interested in, not YOU. And guess what? If 300 000 patients haven't figured out how to 'fix' this, what makes the fixers think that they can?
