    Woman helps people cut loneliness with 'Cafe Conversations'

    LONDON (CBS) Even in a busy place like London, filled with nearly 9 million people, loneliness can take its toll. ''Sometimes being in a big city, you're even more isolated. You're surrounded by people, but you don't know who to talk to," said Louise Kaye, the creator of Cafe Conversations. For Kaye, loneliness hit when her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. She talked to her local restaurant into opening its doors to a social idea. "I just kept my fingers crosse

    How Ealing's children's centres are helping new mums battle loneliness, isolation and post natal depression

    Sally Abdel-Salam didn’t realise she was suffering postnatal depression until she walked into West Twyford Children’s Centre. She was 24, with a newborn son, none of her friends had kids, and in her isolation, she thought there was something wrong with her. Now the centre where staff lifted the loneliness and finally allowed Sally to start enjoying motherhood is threatened with closure. It is one of 11 in Ealing facing closure or service cuts as the council tries to save £808,000

    What We Can Learn About Social Isolation From Trapper Nelson, Florida’s Lonely Tarzan

    Loneliness is gradually becoming a more widespread issue, with many feeling more and more isolated. According to a recent poll on Americans by CIGNA, “Only 53% have meaningful in-person social interactions, such as having an extended conversation with a friend or spending quality time with family, on a daily basis.” The remaining participants reported varying degrees of either emotional, social or other forms of isolation. Their study showed that regular human contact is key to mental healt

    10 Million Expected To Live Alone By 2039, New Research Reveals

    Research published by the ONS (Office for National Statistics) explores the changing financial, lifestyle and wellbeing picture for the increasing amount of people living alone in the UK In twenty years (from 1997 to 2017) there was an increase of 53% in the number of people aged between 45-64 year old living alone, which can partly be explained by the large amount of people born in the 1960’s (including the ‘baby boomer’ generation) reaching this age and changes in marital relationships, w

    Why Society Needs To Fix Tech’s Loneliness Problem

    Are you lonely? If so, you’re not alone. We’re going through a ‘loneliness epidemic’, and the evidence is clear to see in nearly every social situation, from dinner parties with friends to family get-togethers, to even a date: people on their phones, failing to connect with each other.    We’re addicted to the tools that are supposed to help bring us together, like social media and dating apps. But often, instead of connecting us, they push us apart – resulting in feelings of missing o

    LGBT Issues

    Being different in the eyes of others can often lead to isolation and anxious bouts of loneliness. No one chooses the sexuality and people have to deal with these differences as best they can.

  • Venom

    Hmmm!  I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie.  When I was growing up I was more into DC than Marvel so Venom kind of slipped by me.  The movie was OK, I suppose, it passed some time and it did keep my attention on the screen.  The story was somewhat slow burning for the most part, but the CGI FX were very well done, the motorcycle/car/drone chase was pretty neat, though nothing out of the ordinary.  I'm not sure about the comedy elements, they seemed rather childish in what could otherwis

    Hunter Killer

    Another entertaining movie that kept me occupied for a couple of hours.  I like Gerard Butler movies, but I feel I was well and truly spoiled by Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen (not to mention 300) where he was in the midst of the action and dishing out mayhem wherever he set foot.  Hunter KIller is still a good watch, but Gerard Butler is the captain of a submarine and rarely moves above deck.  The rest of the movie is about a four-man team who need to rescue the Russian President from

    The Meg

    Perhaps not what you would expect from Jason Statham, no fist fights with loads of bad guys, no car chases and no plotting to eliminate people as he has done in The Transporter and The Mechanic (as well as other noteworthy movies he's made).  The Meg is a different kind of movie, in some ways you could say that its Jaws on steroids.  A reasonable plot, good acting from all the cast, good sets and decent effects on the Megalodon itself.  One or two jumps in your seat moments and overall a reasona

    A few changes to make the site more user friendly

    We've made a few changes in an attempt to make the site more user-friendly.  Firstly, we have renamed the forums to discussions - this seems a logical change as this is where most discussions will take place.  Each section of the discussion list is divided into different areas covering different aspects of discussions that can take place. Secondly, we have renamed blogs to diaries - again this seems a logical change as a blog can be seen as a diary of events in a person's life; it also

    Peppermint

    Don't be fooled by the film title - Peppermint seems like an innocuous title, but this is one tough story.  A simple tale of revenge from a woman (Jennifer Garner) who wants revenge on a drug dealer who had targetted her husband for termination and both she and her young daughter got caught in the crossfire.  Garner is superb, she could become Mrs Wick and takes on the tough role of a hard-hitting mother and wife who will stop at nothing to get justice (and revenge) for her loss.  A great action

    • Loneliness from being bullied
      Bullying is discrimination, yet bullying does not discriminate.  Anyone can be affected by bullies; this can be at school, in the workplace or even with neighbours. It can be an intense experience that makes you feel like an outsider, or that you are not normal in some way.  It is invasive, unpleasant, demoralising and can leave you feeling isolated; but you do not have to tolerate or put up with it.  Never feel that you must cope with this alone.

    • Drink, drugs and loneliness
      The root of loneliness is feeling a lack of connection to those around us. It is the strong feeling that you are separate or different from others that many people in addiction recovery experience. Loneliness is a multifaceted experience, and if we look closely, buried under feelings of loneliness is often a sense of worthlessness. We struggle to connect because deep down we do not believe we deserve to. To truly overcome loneliness, we must look within ourselves as well as to outside companionship.

    • Loneliness and bereavement
      It’s one of those sad issues that we all must face at some point in our lives.  Leaving this earthly domain is one of the few certainties in life.  It is a terrible time when emotions come to the fore and take over our lives, often to the point where we simply do not feel as though we want to move forward. When we grieve, we are grieving for ourselves – it’s we that are feeling the pain, the loss, the emptiness that has been left behind.  Experts generally accept there are four stages of bereavement:

    • Loneliness is a disease
      Loneliness is a dangerous health issue, one that is widespread and often unseen by other people.  It’s not a contagious disease that can be passed onto others, but others can be affected by seeing the effects of loneliness in others.  It’s not restricted to any one group of people or age group, nor is it restricted to any country or region; it is universal in its sinister effects on millions of people.  There is no magic cure, no immunisation that can be applied; this is something that can enter your life without your intervention in doing anything to bring it about.
