Thank you so much for your response, S.J. I didn't find anything rude in your response and hooe you get sone recuperative sleep.

I appreciate your advice about CBT, and your words that I should remain hopeful about positive changes.

Your quote above definitely seems right on, in my case. My "wall" is not one I really want to put up, but it is indeed hard to eliminate. I would love the chance to make some good female friends (or at least one) in the future. Though I've tried "not to care" about lost friends or lack of, of course I do, or I wouldn't revisit this issue. I feel this hole in my life. Not just me having a female friend, but me being able to give to someone more fully.
