Subject:         end of homeschooling years and empty nest....sooooo depressed
Date: March 14, 2013 at 3:10 pm PST

My dh doesn't know what to do with me; I'm a basket case. My
youngest is working fulltime and heading off to college in
the fall. my oldest lives far away with a wife and baby that
i rarely see because her family is all-consuming and they
have (for the most part) left our faith.

I was going through some boxes from when we moved last year
and found a scrapbook from our golden time...when the kids
were preschool thru elementary (homeschool) age. OMG I
bawled all afternoon.

Back then I knew what i was doing; I knew where we were
going; I had a path AND a purpose. I feel i have nothing now
except dealing with day after day after day.

My happy moments are walking my dog and being with the
animals on our small farm. I like working out at Curves makes me forget everything for a little while. I
know i should say church fellowship but honestly...meh. It's
OK I guess.

Is it empty nest syndrome? is it perimenopause? (I'm 45) or
am I really cracking up?
