    hello. i am very new here so not sure of all protocall. my daughter sent me this sight and after putting it off for a month or so,i figured i cant get much more depressed or gainj muh more wt. so why not? then i get the guilts…with everything going on in the world,our country,state,city and neighbors… selfish am i for feeling depressed and at end of my rope over a break up with boyfriend
    but thats my story…its not even a real break up,but i think im loosing him and now i think i fianlly realize how much he means to me. could this be bc there is anoher person invovled….could it be that this isnt the first time,(not with him). i feel im always the getting dumped,there is always someone else better than me that comes along. and of course the fact that ive gained 45lbs in past yr or so doesnt help…good ol menapause….i get all the symptoms and the mo. period too….who could ask for more…enough..enough…enough of my pity party,thanks for listening


    I’m so glad you finally went to this site Terri. Therese always has really great things to say as well as the other people that comment. Really, it’s a lifeline for some of us. And it’s important to surround yourself with a lot of those (lifelines, people, support) when you’re going through a rough time.
    Just know that you’re not alone. And you’re not selfish. If you haven’t sought any medical advice or counseling, maybe it would help to talk to someone objective–someone who will just listen and help you through this difficult time.
    Keep on hanging on. Valerie
