no. i never used to get lonely. it only happened in the last 3 yrs when i was rejected by the people who got me here in california in the first place. i was rejected over money. i was not to see all the money that was coming in and i was not valued as a person and friend, so i was shunned and pushed away to my cave, where i sit. i continuously told them i felt like a dog tied up out back, but it did no good. no, not getting lonely is a ok thing. i lived that way practically my whole life and i was independent and a loner and went around people only when i wanted. it was pretty good. well, at times, i would get lonely, but it didn't affect me as much as it does now. this is an on-going day in and day out thing for over 2 yrs now.
