I am a 60 year old mother of four adopted grown children, suffering from depression and empty nest syndrome. Our youngest son, age 23, is very very mentally ill and a severe challenge. I am at the point where I am having trouble just coping with anything and everything. I work full time as a teacher (something I am very good at and proud of) and am married to my sweetheart of almost 30 years. Right now, I just can't get it together. I am on meds for despression and I am going to start seeing my counselor again after two years. The stress from our son has driven me over the ledge. He recently moved to another state but still calls daily. I don't know if any of this makes sense. I just know I am at the end of my rope and I am having difficulty finding the knot to hold on to. Can anyone relate? Am I in the right group?
