Hello Everyone. I haven't been on in awhile. Physically, I'm doing okay lately. I've been battling this horrible depression since the spring. It got worse when my oldest son graduated college and moved out of state. I've tried keeping busy and exercising. Also, my psychiatrist has me on welbutrin-300mg. I tried lexapro, but hated it. I have been having better moments, but since my daughter left to go back to school last week, I'm going to that horrible place again where I feel that my best years are behind me, I've outlived my usefulness, and life has nothing good left to teach me. Only my husband and youngest son are home. I was so used to a lively household with 3 kids and their friends and activities. Please tell me it gets better, and I'll come to terms with this. I don't know what I'll do when the little one leaves. Even though I've always worked, ,my whole identity has revolved around my kids. Thanks. Prayers to all, especially those in the Gulf area.
