    Thank you for this forum. Now I don't feel so alone. I am so isolated from my family; they just don't understand why I'm not happy. Well, over the course of 4 years, I lost my Mother, my Cousin, and my 24 year marriage. He left me for someone half his age. Isn't that always the way? He blind-sided me with this news out of the blue one day, and in one year, I lost my home, my Husband, and my way of life, as I knew it. All my so-called friends went with him, which left me horribly alone. I moved 45 minutes away from them, but I am also far away from my beloved Daughter. She is the one and only reason I keep holding on. But it gets harder every single day. Sometimes, I just want to go to sleep, and never wake up. (sigh) My cousin tells me to becareful what I wish for, but would that be so bad? Probably. I'd miss my darling child, and she would miss me as much as I miss my Mother.
    So, it's another day, and I am still holding on.

    momroe, and yes, I am 60
