View Full Version : How do I stop?

I keep missing my youth and my past with my abusive ex. I miss the great times. I am 37. I can't accept my life as a divorcee with half custody and all alone everything taken from me.

I have no comfort, no security, no stability.

I keep having this thought that when I get a bit older, I will be feeling dreadfully sad and fearful about my age and about death getting closer.

How do I stop? I have my wonderful kids but I am obsessed with these crazy thoughts and things. I have tried EVERYTHING meds, therapy and it goes away for a short time but then comes back.

Is aging really that bad? Is death?

thank you.

Aging is not bad. I am 70 years old much older than you and doing just fine thank you as a divorced woman myself. Get involved with your children's school, be a room mother if they are young, find a church or a charity to give to others or at least to meet other women friends and keep yourself busy. Do you work?
You can do this. Take one day at a time.
Good luck
