Re: Empty Nester, Menopause, and Depression
I truly understand how you both feel and what you are going through. I am also in menopause, experiencing empty nest ,depression . I still have a 12 year old at home . However it is so different i raised 4 children and the eldest is 28. My 19 year old is moving tol california this weekend ( i live in ohio) it has upset me so much. I have 3 boys and 1 daughter, 3 grandkids also. I miss so much when i was raising my children and life was so hectic at the time it seems i didnt notice how fast it went by.
Nothin in this time of my life is making sense, the menopause and depression seem to keep me from enjoying my grandkids like i want to , i feel disconnected from the world at times. I also had alot of things from my childhood that i have had therapy for before but it seems to keep coming back to haunt me.
Just so you guys know your not alone and there are days the only way i get by is my antidepressant. Take care
