How to make new friends

I just don't know how to do this. I am in a city I grew up in, but everyone I know has moved on. Yes, I have family but I don't want to lean on them for everything. I am disabled. I do not work. I live alone. I have amnesia so I don't remember anything more than 8-10 hours. But I don't want to become a hermit. I want to go out and meet new people - even if I can't remember meeting them the next day. It is the - in the moment experience - that I need right now. So how can I do this? I'm terrified because I feel I can't trust people, but want to desperately. I live in a winter City, which doesn't help when it's -20 outside.

Please, I need some suggestions.


Re: How to make new friends

I suggest meeting a neighbor and if you feel comfortable - share your story. Maybe they can accompany you on outings to meet people. There might also be free volunteer services in your area. Call a crisis line and get connected. Your primary healthcare provider may be able to help connect you with someone.
