    I'm fifteen, and I'm just scared to death of my life slipping away from me. I haven't done anything remotely important and if I died today, I would have  no lasting effect on the world. As I get older, I know that this mindset will just stay with me until whenever I do die...

    I Know

    Especially since I had such a miserable childhood and growing up for me was the pits. Also, there are so many things I always wanted to do when I was younger, but now it's too late because of my age. I wish there was such a thing as the fountain of youth.

    43 is a difficult age for me and probably for all women. Yes, we CAN have more children but we probably will not. You begin to look at your children and feel sadness that you will not be able to see another day one of a precious life. Of course I love my children, but I miss...
