I am a 37 years old mom ,I am a mother of 3 children. I am a Dentist. I try to make every thing perfect. The life I have, the difficulties I face make me anxious.. I like to have a social life; I cannot resist my feeling of being lonely, but I don’t have good social life, & I am lonely.

My loneliness in Mosul....

It is so weird , since I began to write I had many friends .
They share me my thoughts ,my feelings, my fear &pray for my family .
I did not have close friends since I moved to Mosul . I thought it is because of the different viewpoints& the way of thinking between the people here & people of Baghdad where I am from. Although we are all from one country ,but we differ in our life style .
I miss my life in Baghdad a lot .When I go there I feel like I am returned back to life again .I have many people there who care about me & we can have great time together. I miss my family , our neighbors , my old friends in the high school,& I miss the family's friends. There I can talk about every thing, I can discuss all the issues freely.
I thought the reason behind my loneliness here is the difference between me & the people here . But what about my new blog friends , we are from different nations , we have different viewpoints ,different religions & we differ in our life style. Those new INVISIBLE friends are very supportive, they show me their understanding , their empathies , even their disagreements.
But I think the people here in Mosul don’t like the one how disagree with them ,or have different opinions. They even don’t like to have strong relationships out of the family. I don’t really try to generalize but that what I found from the people I was in contact with along my 15 years in Mosul.Like those in the collage ,at work &even among my husband's Family &relatives. I am very much in need to people that we can share things together , I can be my self among them ,I can express my feelings &my opinions freely .Specially in this life where we all suffer a lot , we need to support each other .
In the war &and many many months later I didn't have any kind of connection with my family ,no phone services, no internet ,nothing at all. I was dispirit & lonely with no one around. The only family who sympathize with me is my husband's uncle. But we are from different generations…
So with you my dear invisible anonymous friends ,I will be as I am, humorous , hopeful &friendly ¬ depressed ,anxious, nor lonely.
Keep in touch ….

Yes we are here for you Mama. I see how much we are similar and not how different we are. I tend to feel lonely from time to time too. I do have friends but when I feel down, I tend to retreat.
It is important to share your emotions with people especially people that understand what you are going through. I do not know what it is like to live in a war torn country as you do. I appreciate your's and Sunshine's blogs to have a greater understanding of your life. I pray that you continue to have strength to get through each day. I pray that there will be greater peace in your country.

Hi, Mama. You have a friend in New York, also.

I really enjoy reading your blog. You have a wonderful daughter, too. "Sunshine" is so mature and thoughtful for someone her age. I'm sure you had a lot to do with that. I don't comment much but I really do enjoy your blog. Keep writing. :-)

Hi Mama,

One thing you probably haven't had a chance to do yet is meet someone face-to-face who you'd known for a while on the Internet.

Before I got married, I'd often take trips to meet people I'd gotten to know over a long time online. A few times, I even went to group gatherings, where groups of people who knew each other online would meet somewhere for a weekend.

If you ever have an opportunity to do this, it is quite rewarding. You often build up a mental image of people you talk to online, and it's funny when you meet them how different they seem from how you pictured them. But, in all the encounters I've had (I've met a lot of people this way) I found if I got along with someone online, I also got along well with them in person.

What I've really learned is that when you make friends online, those people are real friends. You just interact with them in a different way.

Perhaps in a couple of years, the violence in Iraq will have calmed own and someone will organize a bloggers get-together over there. If so, and you get the opportunity to go to it, you may see how real the people you are meeting online really are.

I believe that the best way for a person to learn and grow is to listen (or read) different opinions. It really is too bad that this is not present in your life in Mosul. However, I am glad that you are able to find them here. There are many people in my life who share a difference of opinion on many things. I will not even talk about certain subjects with certain people because I can see that we will never resolve our difference. However, I (usually) won't hold that difference against them personally.

Thank you for talking about this. I found it to be very insightful.

Even though I am new to your site, I think it is safe to say that you also have a friend in Washington State.

Mama, I think it is just the nurse in me. I often will empathize with those in pain. I also identify with you as a mom. Sharing your life just lets me know how I can pray for you. So please keep blogging how you feel.

Mama, I too know what you feel. I started my own blog mainly so that I could express my feelings on matters that I didn't think anyone else could understand. Most of the people I know don't share my interests and don't want to. Thats why the internet can be a wonderful thing. I read you and your daughter's blogs every day and it makes me wish I could help you and at the same it gives me hope that Iraq as such great people like you and Sunshine leading it into the future. Rest assure you have another friend here in New York and I will keep reading. Stay safe.

Thank you for sharing your life. It is easier to learn about things when one reads or speaks to someone real that experiences the events.

You have another new friend in Texas.

Take care, and may God protect you and all who love you.

Hi, I'm doing a social studies degree at university and I need to talk to some people who would like to take part in a study into making friends on the internet. I've used this site (hobby activity) to contact people but wondered if you knew of any other way I could contact interested people.
Many thanks
