The Shores of Alone
Oh gosh yes, I have felt like that. I have a daughter who is having her third child in three years, with a bad husband. I have a husband that no longer communicates at all, I work, write (I too shall be published one day.. ), and try to keep the older people in my family happy, (Mom, Grandma), Time for me is scarce, and I have to demand every little bit. I planned a wonderful trip to reunite with an old love, the first thing I have done for me in years...It went poorly, as you can see from the rash of depressing poems I have been posting.
You are not alone in this lonely feeling, and I live in an area where there is no where to go and no one to meet new, so its tough. Thank God for the forums, just for intelligent human companionship, if nothing else. I hope you feel better soon. I think we women always have more roles than we have time for. Wish I had an answer. Just say no doesn't quite work for me..
