    Sometimes I feel like I'm missing out on life?

    I'm young. Everyone's busy partying, dating and I'm trying to take care of my mental health. I isolate myself from the world. Sometimes it feels lonely. Can anyone relate?

    It's1.30am and my husband is snoring gently

    beside me. My children are all sleeping and my dogs are curled up around my curves. Everyone is utterly oblivious to how lonely I feel. How can my home be so full but my heart so empty?

    I don't know where I'll be in a year, let alone six months. I'm only eighteen and I'm starting to feel the pressure of adult hood coming down on me. I can feel myself changing, my thoughts, my actions, and even my anxiety.
