So sad, cry every day, lost job, can't find another, kids live far away, family lives three hours away, been to doctors, been on medication, friends have tried to help. Even got a new puppy who just peed on my chair, got to go I have some cleaning to do!

I guess I was different. I was happy my last DD moved out. It too a couple of months to get us to her not being their. But all in all I was (should say am) happy. I was/am free of the responsibility of kids. Now if my 15 year old Chihuahua (Joe) would just go to dogy heaven. Me and my DH would be totally free of having to take care of anyone else but us.
I hope you start feel better about them being adults.

Aww honey I hear ya. Mine are 19 and 17. The 19 year old is in another state at college and the younger one is at college door steps. I thought I would grieve myself silly when our 19 year old left home. Actually we have become closer because we talk a lot more over the phone and emails. No longer is he the rebellious teen but a young man that loves his Mom and Dad and shows it all the time. I do hope some day to have our sons all within driving distance to us. But for now Mama do what I do. I volunteer a lot, I have book club and YES bunko along with other groups that gather and socialize. Nows the time for you to do what you like. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing. We all get down this time of year when our older children are out of the nest.
