    Hello, I'm 48 years old and my husband is 52. We have 2 kids, 21 and 22. Our son is out of the house so I do feel a little bit of the empty nest syndrome. But it is also a new chapter in our lives. I do find myself questioning how to put more meaning into my life...

    A Child

    The last time i honestly felt ALIVE was like 2nd or 3rd grade. Before children became really judgmental-before i became self concous. Before my mom got harsh...it was like my eyes weren't fully open yet-i didnt know what the world was about then. I was actually innocent.

    Given Up

    No matter how much I try in the end I fail. I given up in 2 of my subjects at school. Given up on things that use to be fun. Most Importantely given up on trying to be happy and now I'm hiding behind a fake smile. The only thing I seem not to fail at.

    I Think I Will Always Want This

    On those days when life is just too much, when the spark is gone and when there is no way out, I will always dig down deep for this feeling.  To want this means that there is still hope.

    Looking back when I was in my early twenties I

    laughed more often (even without alcohol), I always made a dull moment fun for me and friends. How did I lost that? How do I reclaim it back?

    I really have not truly had fun in years.  I hardly smile, I can't find joy in anything...it is like I'm dead inside or something like that....that all makes me sad...which adds to the problems.
