Well summers end is closing on us fast now. Kids will be returning to school and the leaves will begin to fall way to soon. The tempatures will begin to fluctuate. I am dreading this since I have Fibromyalgia & CFS, with my Primary Sjogren's, when it starts getting cold and damp I start to ache. Everyday something does anyways but when the weather starts messing around it makes it worse. So the end of summer makes me kind of depressed, I guess I get that way anytime something ends even a season that I really like. I feel we didn't do much this year. It's the first time in a long time we didn't take a big family vacation and go somewhere. My kids are growing up so fast, my daughter is getting married next year and my son is 16. So family vacations will be different now. Lots of things go through my head. I am not going to do well with this empty nest thing. I cry every once and a while now just thinking that I have no more babies. That they don't need me as much. And I cry for the things we used to do as they grew up. And I cry for the things I didn't do that now I wish I had. I guess a lot of mothers have been through this or will at sometime. But I am not sure how to cope with this. With my illness I wonder if that will make it all seem worse. Life throughs us so many curves and changes are inevitiable. Hope you don't feel I just rambled here. I just needed to type this out for self therapy. Thanks for reading.
